Dear Mr. President:
October 7th marked the 11th anniversary of the Afghan war. It went largely unnoted in a fawning corporate media that has little interest in mentioning the war, much less ending it.
Americans, Afghans, Englishmen, citizens of every other NATO country with a token military force occupying that devastated country are nearly unanimous. Get every last invading soldier out of Afghanistan without further delay. Its the masters of war who keep this war going, not the citizenry.
NATO soldiers, mostly American, are being blown to bits by roadside bombs, picked off by a hidden sniper or watch in horror as an Afghan Army recruit being trained, turns the US made rifle on their trainer and sends him to Kingdom Come. Each and every one, killed, maimed or sentenced to a lifetime of PTSD for being needlessly forced to served in a senseless, murderous and failed war is a tragic loss and an act of shame and cowardice by the US war party which allows endless deaths to maintain endless war.
Break your promise to wait till the end of 2014 to bring them all home. Let John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman, John Bolton, Mitt Romney and the rest of the bloodthirsty lot bellow all they want about the need to stay the course for Amerian honor. There is no honor in letting brave, but deceived young men and women, die or go insane fighting an insane war. Don't kick the can of criminal war down the road to 2014 when a true heartless war monger might be President.
Get them out now and maybe you can look in the mirror and tell yourself you actually did something to earn that Nobel Peace Prize.
