Scott Horton on Why the U.S. War in Afghanistan is Unwinnable

The U.S. war in Afghanistan remains as unwinnable now as it was when the U.S.–led coalition dropped its first bomb in October 2001, author Scott Horton said at a March 4 talk at Washington, DC’s Middle East Books and More. In his insightful new book, Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan, Horton details the futility of the longest U.S. war and makes the case for an immediate long-overdue withdrawal.

The author began with an explanation of America’s long history of meddling in the region—from the 1953 overthrow of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossa­degh to the ongoing war in Afghanistan known as Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

Interpreting the Carter Doctrine of 1980, which provided that the United States would use military force if necessary to defend its national interests in the Persian Gulf, Horton argued, “They were deliberately trying to provoke the Soviet Union to invade Afghanistan.”

During Operation Cyclone—the code name for the CIA program to arm and finance the mujahideen in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989, prior to and during the Soviet military intervention—Arab fighters were recruited across the Muslim world, particularly from Syria, Libya, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. “It was a right of passage to go to Afghanistan and fight for at least a little while,” he observed. “Some of them stayed, including Osama bin Laden, who brought his construction company and built bases in Pakistan. He was actually wounded in battle against the Communists and really earned his street credibility among the fighters there as part of the Arab Afghan army.”

Since 1941, “the American empire has never taken a break,” Horton told his audience. “We’ve been at war ever since then. We inherited the world’s empires—the European and Japanese empires at the end of WW II—and have dominated most of the planet ever since then. The Communists got one-third and we got two-thirds, basically, and now that the Communist block is gone America’s influence has spread even further.”

According to Horton, after the 9/11 attacks bin Laden’s agenda was “to bring us to Afghanistan and do the same thing to us that they did to the Russians.” And bin Laden and al-Qaeda found an ally in President George W. Bush, who “enlisted the American military to do their dirty work for them,” he said. “America’s military empire, in taking advantage of and exploiting the 9/11 attacks just as al-Qaeda had wanted us to do, is what has accomplished so many of their goals across the region.”

Horton astutely pointed out that we didn’t need a war against the Taliban, only al-Qaeda. “Taking on the Taliban was actually a huge distraction from taking on the enemy, al-Qaeda,” he exclaimed. “The attackers on 9/11 were not Taliban, they were Egyptians and Saudis.”

Turning to the current insurgency in Afghanistan, he stated: “We cannot win it. Because, to oversimplify it, the first reason is the brutality of the occupation and the way the war is waged against innocents.” But also, Horton noted, “in Afghanistan the war amounts to an American attempt to foist a coalition government of very small minority groups—the Uzbeks, Tajiks, Hazaras—onto the Pashtun tribesmen who dominate in the east and south of the country.”

To instill a government without including the Pashtuns—the single largest ethnic group in Afghanistan—will simply not work, Horton argued. “The Pashtun tribesmen are a warrior culture and they always have been. They define themselves as defenders of invasion.” And, as this area comprises the ancient Silk Road, the Pashtuns have been invaded since time immemorial. “These are people who would rather die than give up,” he averred. “They will not give up and cannot be defeated.”

The Taliban, calling itself the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, “is not a shadow government,” the author stated. “They are the only functioning government in the vast majority of the country now. They rule the entire countryside of the south and the east and much of the west. The Taliban does not have to lose. They just have to hang on, and they have.”

At a cost of more than $1 trillion, the loss of almost 2,400 U.S. soldiers and more than 111,000 Afghans, “the war in Afghanistan has accomplished nothing,” Horton lamented.

“Even though the polls show the majority of American people are against the Afghan war, it is the lowest priority and remains another one of America’s seven wars on the back burner, mostly out of sight and out of mind, and yet is still destroying Afghanistan and the United States,” he concluded.

Naziyahu calls for action against Syria

Russia’s Putin calls Nazi prime minister to urge him not to take actions that would destabilise Syria

 

 

Naziyahu called on Wednesday for action against Syria, as the US and its allies appear to be gearing up for a military strike against Damascus over a suspected chemical attack in Douma that it denies.

“The events of the last days teach that standing up to evil and aggression is a mission that is incumbent upon every generation,”  Naziyahu said at the opening ceremony of Nazi annual Holocaust commemorations.

“We saw the Syrian children who were slaughtered with chemical weapons. Our hearts were rent by the horrific sights.”. ”WHAT ABOUT THE PALESTINIAN CHILDREN YOU KILLED NAZIYAHU ?”  Comment by Shoah 

Earlier on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Naziyahu in a phone conversation to do nothing to destabilise Syria.

Naziyahu told Putin that his Nazi regime would press a campaign to prevent Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria, his office said.

Syria, Iran and Russia say ‘Israel’ was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Nazi regime has neither confirmed nor denied.

Putin told Naziyahu that it was important to respect Syria’s sovereignty, according to a statement on the Kremlin’s website.

In its statement on the conversation, Naziyahu’s office said: “The prime minister reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria.”

Syria strike may be a blow to Trump’s right-wing base

In his speech, Naziyahu criticised the nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers and warned Iranian leaders not to “test Israel’s resolve”.

Naziyahu also invoked events from WWII and the Holocaust to call for action against Iran.

“The lack of willingness among the powers of the West to stand firm in the face of the tyrannical regime, their lack of willingness to pay the price of stopping aggression at an early stage, led to humanity paying a much greater price later on,” he said.

Activists Protest Nazi Attack on Palestinians

Waging Peace

In San Francisco, some 200 human rights defenders protested March 31 against the Israeli military’s killing of 17 Palestinians, most between the ages of 17 and 35, in Gaza the previous day. More than 1,400 Palestinians were injured in the attack. Some 773 were shot with live ammunition; others with deadly rubber-coated steel bullets.

An estimated 30,000 Gazans participated in the March 30 rally commemorating “Land Day,” when on that day in 1976 Israeli soldiers killed six Palestinians protesting the Israeli takeover of their land. This year’s rally also marked the beginning of a six-week remembrance of the 1948 Nakba (catastrophe), when Israel officially became a state and expelled more than 750,000 Palestinians from their homes.

Sporting Palestinian keffiyehs, waving Palestinian flags and carrying signs reading “Let Gaza Live” and “Support the Palestinian Right of Return,” the protesters denounced the killings and Israel’s more than decade-old blockade of the beleaguered 140-square-mile enclave, and demanded that Palestinians be given the right to return to their homes within Israel.

“We’re standing by Palestinians who are demanding their right to return to their land,” Nadya Tannous, education and advocacy coordinator with Interfaith Peace-Builders, told the crowd. “We know that returning home is not a crime.”

Charging that the U.S. government is “equally as guilty for the massacre which took place in Gaza yesterday as is the Israeli armed forces,” Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) Coalition’s West Coast coordinator Richard Becker noted: “Without the emboldening projections coming from Washington to the Israeli leaders, I don’t think they would feel they could do everything they are doing right now.” Becker also pointed out that prior to the Gaza march’s start, Jason Greenblatt—former New York real estate lawyer for Donald Trump, now chief negotiator for the United States in the Middle East—issued a statement calling the march “a hostile attack on Israel.” To the Israelis, as well as the Palestinians, Becker said, that translates as a message from Washington that Israel “can do whatever you want; we stand behind you.”

Linda Ereikat of the General Union of Palestinian Students at San Francisco State University condemned Israel as a settler colonialist power which has committed “settler colonial genocide” for 70 years. “We’re here today to protest genocide and to tell the world that Palestinians are human beings,” she said. “We’re here because time and time again Gaza is forgotten.”

The rally was organized by the ANSWER Coalition, the Arab Resource and  Organizing Center (AROC) and the Palestine Action Network.

Mehrzad Boroujerdi on Post-Revolutionary Iran

NOVANEWS

Waging Peace

The answers to everything you wanted to know about Iranian political data, but didn’t know who to ask, are probably found in Dr. Mehrzad Boroujerdi’s latest book, Postrevolutionary Iran, a Political Handbook (co-authored with Kourosh Rahimkhani). “To my knowledge, this database, which now has over 100,000 fields of information, is the largest database of its kind in the Middle East,” Boroujerdi, professor of political science at Syracuse University and currently a fellow of the American Council on Education in residence at California State University, Northridge, told his audience at the Atlantic Council in Washington, DC on March 12.

Based on research into the background of 2,323 individuals who have served in Iran’s parliament since 1979 through 2017, the author’s findings pertain to many topics, including clerics, women and religious minorities.

The number of clerics in the government is declining, the author noted. “People are not voting for clerics and many don’t want to enter a race; they would rather be appointed to a non-elected office,” he explained. “But, having that turban is a major résumé-enhancer.” Although Iran is a theocracy, the clerics, in Boroujerdi’s opinion, “are losing ground to the Revolutionary Guard and many others.”

Although women constitute 50 percent of the population and 60 percent of university students, only 3 percent in his database are women, Boroujerdi lamented. There was only one female minister, appointed—and then fired—by former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. There are no women in the Expediency Council, Assembly of Experts or Guardian Council. And only 2.7 percent of parliament members are women. “After 40 years, look where we stand in terms of improving the female labor force,” Boroujerdi exclaimed.

Also disturbing, he stated, is the lack of representation of religious minorities. No Sunnis are ministers; only 1.9 percent of members of the Expert Assembly and 4.5 percent of parliament members are Sunnis.

“With respect to gender or religious politics, for the first time we have hard data to work with, rather than just anecdotes,” Boroujerdi added.

Barbara Slavin, the Atlantic Council’s director of the Future of Iran Initiative, moderated the question-and-answer session.

In response to a query about the 1979 revolution, Boroujerdi answered, “If you define revolution as a new class of people coming to power, Iran definitely had a substantial revolution in that sense. Revolution has opened up new avenues of participation and social mobility for people who have come from more modest ranks than what was the case before.”

But, he continued, “I think, in retrospect, 40 years of trial and error have taught a lot of us—myself included, who had rosy views of revolution—that we don’t want to have another revolution. Revolutions come with huge costs, amazing discontinuity, and I do not think that Iran is at a stage where it can afford to have yet another costly revolution in the social sense.”

Presently, “participation in elections far exceeds approval rates,” Boroujerdi claimed. “People are participating in elections.” He also pointed out that when voters are upset, they decide to punish officials by voting them out. “The message is that neither of the political camps—conservatives or reformists—can take things for granted in terms of how the citizenry will behave in the elections,” he said.

“We have seen the secularization of Iranian politics because my generation who took part in the 1979 revolution were truly naïve enough politically to think that Islam and Ayatollah Khomeini have all of the solutions,” Boroujerdi concluded. “Now, in retrospect, 40 years later, we say, ‘oh, boy, what a mess.’ Khomeini did not turn out to be Iran’s Gandhi, and Islam is not the solution.”

Stop Bombing Yemen, San Franciscans Tell MbS

Members of Northern California’s Yemeni community and their supporters protested outside San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel on March 28 prior to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s visit to the Bay Area to meet with CEOs of Silicon Valley’s high-tech companies.

“Stop the War on Yemen,” the crowd outside the posh hotel chanted, calling on the Saudi crown prince to stop bombing Yemeni civilians.

Bin Salman, known by his initials MbS, is also Saudi Arabia’s defense minister and oversees all of its military forces. Since March 2015 he has served as the commander of the international coalition in the “Decisive Storm” mission in Yemen. With U.S. support, the coalition has continually bombed the impoverished country, killing more than 5,000 civilians, according to the U.N., and leaving thousands more injured and displaced from their homes. Many of the airstrikes were carried out in violation of laws that prohibit deliberate or indiscriminate attacks against civilians, Human Rights Watch has charged.

In addition, Yemen’s health ministry estimates that more than 10,000 of the country’s 29.5 million residents have died from lack of desperately needed medical care, food and supplies since August 2016. And, according to the World Health Organization, there are currently more than 1,029,700 cases of cholera in Yemen.

Finkelstein on Anti-Zionism Vs. Anti-Semitism

NOVANEWS

Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, June/July 2017, pp. 66

Dr. Norman Finkelstein addressed the question of whether anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism in a Feb. 16 talk sponsored by the Princeton Committee on Palestine. Finkelstein has been studying this issue since his time as a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton, where his dissertation focused on the theory of Zionism. He explained that Zionism developed at the end of the 19th century to address two concerns: the physical survival of Jews, and the spiritual survival of Judaism in an increasingly secular world and amid growing assimilation. Physical survival became more urgent beginning in the 1930s.

Finkelstein described the two basic types of nationalism. In civic (also called liberal or political) nationalism, as in post-Revolutionary France and the United States, one’s nationality is based on citizenship and entails choice. He quoted historian Eric Hobsbawm’s definition: “Americans are those who wish to be.” In ethnic nationalism, which includes Zionism, a nation is an exclusive, organic whole of people of common descent, wherever they may live. In this version, the nation one belongs to is determined at birth. Even if citizens, German Jews were and Palestinian Israelis are foreign bodies, aliens in someone else’s nation. Finkelstein noted that Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, a chemist, wrote that Europe has a saturation level of 10-15 percent for Jews, beyond which it is not able to absorb them. Therefore, Jews needed a state of their own in their ancestral homeland.

However, at the birth of Zionism, more than 90 percent of the population of Palestine was non-Jewish. The only option for Zionist Jews, then, was transfer of the indigenous population, i.e., ethnic cleansing. For decades this was denied. The consensus view was that Palestine was empty—much, Finkelstein noted, as pioneers in America considered the new world a virgin land. Then in his 1987 book, The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, Israeli historian Benny Morris identified transfer as “inevitable and inbuilt into Zionism,” which led to Palestinian resistance in self-defense. In his next book, Righteous Victims (1999), Morris wrote that the entirely rational fear of territorial displacement and dispossession were the chief motivating factors in Arab opposition to Zionism, both in 1948 and after 1967. Finkelstein characterized the Palestinian stance as anti-ethnic cleansing rather than anti-Semitism. As in American attitudes toward their own indigenous population, for Israelis and their American supporters the overall final good justifies cruel acts; thus they find “Palestinians psychotic because they refuse to recognize that their ethnic cleansing was morally just.”

One argument that anti-Zionism is motivated by anti-Semitism is that, of all the just causes in the world, so much international attention is fixated on Palestine and the Zionist state. Finkelstein pointed out that white South Africans also felt unfairly singled out for criticism during the anti-apartheid era.

Israelis and their supporters view the United Nations as particularly hostile to Israel. But Finkelstein sees the international community as being generous to Israel from the beginning. The 1947 partition plan (Security Council Resolution 181) gave 56 percent of the land to the one-third of the population that was Jewish. After Israel took half of the remaining territory allotted to an Arab state and expelled 90 percent of the indigenous population, the U.N. still admitted Israel as a member state and did not enforce the Palestinian Right of Return (Security Council Resolution 194). Following the 1967 war, which Finkelstein labeled an Israeli act of aggression, the U.N. demanded an Israeli withdrawal not to the partition line but to the Green Line, and made it conditional upon Arab states renouncing aggression. The international community did not allow South Africa to get away with black Bantustans, but has accepted a similar solution for Israel.

Israel, Finkelstein concluded, is the ethical challenge of our time, not because of anti-Semitism, but because of the appalling features of its treatment of Palestinians. “If we eliminate the terrorist background noise, it’s hard to come up with a more unjust situation.” There is the longevity: 100 years since the Balfour Declaration; 50 years since occupation; 20 years since Israel’s blockade and siege of Gaza. There is the “inequity of Biblical proportion,” Finkelstein argued. For example, in less than six years, Israel has launched three assaults on Gaza, where more than half the population is under 18 and are refugees. In the most recent, Operation Protective Edge in 2014, 550 Palestinian children were killed and one Israeli child; 18,000 Palestinian homes were destroyed and one Israeli home. Suffering of such disproportion makes “a mockery of the demand for balance.”

UN S G: We Demand the Immediate Release of all Palestinian Child Prisoners in Nazi Camp’s

NOVANEWS
UN Secretary General: We Demand the Immediate Release of all Palestinian Child Prisoners in Israeli Jails
Nazi at work

Why this is important

We demand the immediate release of all child prisoners in Nazi camp’s, and ending the Nazi policy of detaining, interrogating and torturing children.

Nazi systematic violations of international law in its treatment of Palestinian children has been well documented by UNICEF’s 2013 Children in Nazi Military Detention report, UNICEF’s subsequent progress reports of Oct. 2013 and Feb. 2015, the Feb. 2014 Australian film Stone Cold Justice, and by other international organisations such as Human Rights Watch and Defence for Children International. Child detention, abuse and torture constitute a violation of Nazi regime legal obligations under the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Fourth Geneva Convention.

According to the April 2016 report No Way to Treat a Child by Defence for Children International – Palestine, between 500‐700 children are prosecuted in Nazi military courts every year, 75% of these children report assault during detention, 97% of interrogations are held without the presence of a parent or a lawyer, and by the date of the report’s publication 440 children were held in military detention. Human rights organisation B’Tselem has reported that the number of Palestinian minors in Nazi camp’s remained above 300 by the end of 2016.

Palestinian children held in Nazi camp’s and detention centres suffer from harsh and inhumane conditions of detention, including lack of food and clothing, lack of hygiene, detention in rooms where there is no ventilation and lighting, no access to medical care, lack of playgrounds, denial of family visits, no access to counsellors and psychologists, detention with Zionist criminal children, verbal abuse and beatings, sexual harassment, collective punishment and disease outbreaks.

This campaign aims to collect the signatures of all people of conscious around the world to pressure the Nazi regime  to release all child prisoners in Nazi camp’s, end Nazi cruel and inhuman treatment of Palestinian children, and to send a message of a reminder to the international community of the on‐going plight of the Palestinian people.

As the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) launched its annual policy conference March 4 at Washington, DC’s Walter E. Washington Convention Center, hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists protested outside the event.

The human rights defenders oppose AIPAC’s unconditional support for the Israeli government’s illegal policies of occupying and confiscating Palestinian land and the Israeli military’s inhumane treatment of Palestinians.

The protesters also rallied against the annual $3.1 billion of American taxpayers’ money sent to Israel each year, especially as President Donald J. Trump has slashed aid to the Palestinians and in his budget has imposed drastic cuts to the State Department and other agencies.

The rally was organized by the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, ANSWER Coalition, Code Pink and Jewish Voice for Peace, among others.

Jeremy “Jesus-Christ” Corbyn and Britain’s Zionist lobby

Jeremy Jesus-Christ Corbyn

Gilad Atzmon writes:

Recently we learned that Jeremy Corbyn has yet again upset “the Jews”, and by “the Jews” I mean a few loud, obnoxious voices who claim to “represent the Jews”. Since he is a well meaning guy, Corbyn accepted an invitation to celebrate the Jewish Passover dinner with Jewdas who are apparently the “wrong” Jews, according to the Zionist lobby.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews (BDBJ) and the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA) are beside themselves. During a phone-in to LBC RadioBDBJ’s President Jonathan Arkush stated that Jeremy Corbyn has “reached the tipping point”. The BDBJ had made it clear to Corbyn that he should stop giving any credence to Jewish “ultra-fringe” groups.

… what about the rest of humanity, the so-called goyim, or gentiles, the majority Britons? For how long will they agree to allow their politics to be hijacked by a microscopic lobby falsely claiming to represent a miniature community that amounts to 0.5 per cent of the British population?

One would expect the BDBJ that claims to “represent British Jewry” to also represent Jewdas and maybe even some other independent Jewish voices. I guess we can deduce from this that rival Jews cannot tolerate each other, based not on having no points of agreement, but on the way in which they put each other down. These groups slander their political foes in a manner that resembles the notorious Herem religious ritual. This kind of base behaviour recalls the old Jewish joke: how many synagogues are needed in a village with one Jew? Two – one to go to and one to boycott. 

But what about the rest of humanity, the so-called goyim, or gentiles, the majority Britons? For how long will they agree to allow their politics to be hijacked by a microscopic lobby falsely claiming to represent a miniature community that amounts to 0.5 per cent of the British population? It seems that Jews openly smear and slander each other, but this privilege is reserved exclusively for Jews. The goyim are supposed to walk on their tiptoes. The mere mention of the “J” word can easily cost you your future, your career and your livelihood.

… Corbyn does as Christ instructed, and turns the other cheek. And like their Biblical forebears, those who claim to represent British Jewry fail to read the map. Instead of backing down in the face of acquiescence, they provide the Britons with a spectacle of venom.

Corbyn seems to have found a way through the tribal maze. The opposition leader is basically a Christ figure. Being the nicest guy in the world of politics, he manages to expose the tribal bullies. Corbyn’s secret weapon is kindness. Time after time when he is viciously attacked by Jewish groups such as the CAA, the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) or the BDBJ, the Labour leader reacts in a soothing voice, half smiling as he accepts the criticism, apologises on behalf of his party and vows to appease his Jewish critics.

For those who still fail to understand, Corbyn does as Christ instructed, and turns the other cheek. And like their Biblical forebears, those who claim to represent British Jewry fail to read the map. Instead of backing down in the face of acquiescence, they provide the Britons with a spectacle of venom. Rather than shaking Corbyn’s hand and seeking peace and harmony, they unabashedly punch the other cheek.

For some reason that is beyond me, the British Zionist lobby decided to launch its recent slander campaign against Corbyn on Good Friday. Corbyn for his part, went along with their plans and celebrated the Passover dinner with a group that sound like Judas (Jewdas). By now the Britons are unable to tell whether the acronym JC refers to Jeremy Corbyn or Jesus Christ. So, here is my advice to the nagging Zionist lobby. If you decide to destroy a Jesus-type figure for attending a Passover dinner, don’t be surprised if he is resurrected by the following Sunday.

An Intentional Attempt to Keep Palestinian Journalists Away

Yousef Munnayer, executive direction of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, described Nazi violence as “an intentional attempt to keep Palestinian journalists away from capturing these images and bringing them to the world to see.”

 

Seven Palestinian journalists, all wearing clothing clearly identifying themselves as members of the press, were shot by Nazi forces during last Friday’s “March of Return” in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate. One reporter, photojournalist Yaser Murtaja, succumbed to his wounds.

Despite Nazi indiscriminate targeting of Gazans over the past two Fridays, resulting in 29 deaths and over a thousand injuries, the U.S. media and government has paid very little attention to the situation.This despite Nazi Defense Minster Avigdor Lieberman blatantly admitting that the Israeli military views all of Gaza’s two million inhabitants—trapped in a small strip of land under an air, land and sea blockade enforced by the Nazi regime and it’s Puppet in Egypt—as Hamas agents and thus legitimate military targets. “There are no innocent people in the Gaza Strip,”  he told  Zionist public radio. “Everyone’s connected to Hamas, everyone gets a salary from Hamas, and all the activists trying to challenge us and breach the border are Hamas military wing activists.”

Appearing on MSNBC this weekend (see video above), Yousef Munnayer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, described Nazi targeting of journalists as a blatant attempt to prevent local journalists from showing the world images of Palestinian suffering and Nazi aggression.

As Nazi escalates its attacks on unarmed civilians and journalists, it’s essential that everyone contact their elected officials to demand that Nazi regime be held accountable and continue to support independent news outlets that give voice to the brave journalists operating on the ground in Gaza.
