Afghanistan; more claims of US torture

Afghanistan US torture flagLocals have reported that 9 people have gone ‘missing’ and some are being tortured by US elite forces in the Afghan province of Maidan Wardak.

Of course the US has denied the allegations but Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said that there is sufficient evidence for the claims and has told the US to withdraw its troops from the province within two weeks.

One of the most memorable acts of US brutality and barbarism in Afghanistan came in early 2010 when innocent civilians were deliberately targeted and murdered. The squadron were arrested after photographs of them posing with the murdered civilians came into the public domain.

The US military has a long history of human rights breaches and indiscriminate murder from VietNam and Korea right up to present day Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo.

A France/Mali & US/Iraq comparison

Yesterday Malian civilians sang the name of French president Francois Hollande as yet another city became free from Islamic oppression.

The French president will hand over to African forces once sovereignty of Mali has been restored to the Malian government.

When the French troops are gone, the aid will continue, financial aid and the restoration of cultural and historical sites damaged my the Islamic militants.

In comparison the US in Iraq which started in 2003 seems to go from wore to worse, despite the fact that combat troops officially left in 2010 there are constant bombings and attacks.

The US bombed the crap out of Iraq, went in, overthrew the government, killed thousands of civilians, contracted the rebuilding to US companies and left.

Who is Iraq sings the name of Bush or Obama?
