Jeremy Scahill has an article on the Intercept, Pentagon: Special Ops killing of pregnant Afghan women was “appropriate” use of force. The article goes on and on and on with all these details of the case and every aspect of the situation of the really important night raid that the Special Oops soldiers conducted.
But there’s no reason to go through all those details, when there hasn’t been anything that U.S. troops have done in Afghanistan that’s been “appropriate,” only immoral and criminal. That is because the U.S. military’s invasion and occupation of Afghanistan have been entirely criminal from the get-go. It is these U.S. forces who have been the invaders and occupiers of a country that was never of any threat to America, and that had nothing to do with 9/11. Many Americans believe otherwise, however, because of being brainwashed by all that government propaganda being spewed at them via the government’s spokespeople of the mainstream media, repeating the bureaucrats word for word, since 9/11.
It was a war of aggression, just as much as the war in Iraq. The only reason supposedly was because the Taliban were allegedly harboring Osama bin Laden, and George W. Bush demanded that they release him to the U.S. The Taliban in turn demanded that the Bush administration present evidence against bin Laden, and if you remember, Bush said “we don’t need any evidence, we know he’s guilty.” That’s paraphrasing but I know it’s close. So, because Bush didn’t actually have any evidence against bin Laden, he took the U.S. to war into Afghanistan for no good reason (and the same for Iraq!). I know, most people don’t understand this, because their understanding of 9/11 and post-9/11 events is based on propaganda and lies. They probably even believe that there was a raid in which bin Laden was killed in 2011, when in fact he died long before that.
