Afghanistan: Even Newt Gets It
Sixteen civilian men, women, and children were murdered in the latest atrocity that forms part of the larger atrocity that is the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan. Enough. End it.
Even a lifelong war hawk and interventionist like Newt Gingrich sees there's no victory in Afghanistan. He recently commented that the Afghan people "have spent several thousand years hating foreigners -- and what we have done by staying is become the new foreigners."
Although U.S. troops put him in power, Afghan President Karzai can no longer defend night raids, drones, helicopters shooting children, or U.S. troops waving Nazi flags, urinating on corpses, or burning Korans.
Tell President Obama to get the U.S. military out of Afghanistan now.
