As long as foreign troops are in the country we will be fighting two enemies instead of one. Liberation was just a big lie... night raids, torture and aerial bombardment (that killed hundreds of Afghan civilians while the Taliban made steady gains).Instead of more violence, Joya wants humanitarian aid, education, and support for democratic movements. Obama talks to generals and they tell him "More war." That's what generals do. Their entire existence is based on the belief that war is "necessary" and "good policy." Obama talks with Congressional leaders, nearly all of whom rely on the military industrial complex for contributions and "good jobs" at home. But why doesn't Obama talk to Joya? If only Obama had taken the time to meet with people who are not invested in war, but peace. If only he were spending Thanksgiving with Joya, seeking council from someone who neither makes war nor relies on the profits of war. Then perhaps Tuesday's inevitable announcement of more troops and more war would not be looming over the holidays like an ax over the turkey's neck. 'Liberation was just a big lie' - thestar.com.
