How long more will America and the world be ‘un-democratic’, ‘un-Christian’ and ‘un-Islamic’ with regards to war and peace?

How long more?

How long more will humanity quench her conscience in defending an eye-for-an-eye , power-hungry, and money-driven killing industries, while untenably holding on to her inhumane disguises of democracy and religion?

Putting Afghan arms down?

Al Jazeera 28/2/2009

Negotiations are under way between Taliban-linked mediators, Western officials and the Afghan government.

Patricia Degennaro, a professor at the Centre for Global Affairs at New York University, told Al Jazeera the talks were a central part of attempts to end the conflict.

“It’s long overdue that there is some kind of jirga, or regional council in Afghanistan, where some of these parties who have had grievances over the years are brought together.

“They need to start talking to each other and move forward so people can start putting their arms down.”

Putting American arms down?

From Al Jazeera 28/2/2009 and Obama’s address to Congress

“For too long our budget has not held true about how our tax dollars are spent,” Obama said.”Large sums held off the budget, including the true cost of Iraq and Afghanistan.

“For seven years, we have been a nation at war. No longer will we hide its price. “

“We are now carefully reviewing our policies in both wars, and I will soon announce a way forward in Iraq that leaves Iraq to its people and responsibly ends this war.

And with our friends and allies, we will forge a new and comprehensive strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan to defeat al Qaeda and combat extremism. Because I will not allow terrorists to plot against the American people from safe havens half a world away.”

“The military industrial complex has become embedded in American life,” said John Pike, a US defence expert. “It seems normal and there aren’t strong voices, countervailing constituencies arguing against it.”

Moustaffa from Afghanistan commented on this in Al Jazeera , “The problem with America and it’s like’s never learn from the lesson’s of history. What did America learn from the unjust war it waged in Vietnam? It cost them billion’s of dollar’s and in the end left humiliated. Now they thought would be diffirent because were more powerfull and sophisticated, so they waged an unjust war in Iraq and Afghanistan. So now once again , they are spending trilions and they are achieving nothing except defeat and humiliation.”
