The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion, but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.

Afghan men chant “U.S. special operations forces out!” as several hundred demonstrators march to the Afghan parliament building to protest against the continued presence of U.S. commandos in Afghanistan’s troubled Wardak province, on March 16, 2013. The demonstrators were demanding the release of nine local citizens they believe were detained by the U.S. forces.

tw violence, murder, dismemberment
An 8 year old girl describes the night Robert Bales killed 17 civilians. Watch the video here [x]
Today marks the one year anniversary of the Panjwayi massacre in Afghanistan in which a US soldier, Robert Bales, left his military base and murdered 16 innocent civilians (9 children, 3 women) in two separate villages, cut off their limbs and set them on fire.
This would be U.S. imperialism for you.
Look at her eyes.
In honour of “Veterans Day”, I felt that it was necessary to shine a light on all the good U.S./Nato have done, and continue to do, in Afghanistan. I wanted to recognise all those “soldiers” who have, in the past 11 years, exported peace into Afghanistan. I wanted to demonstrate my utmost appreciation to those who have transformed Afghanistan into the prosperous, peaceful, beacon of democracy it is today.
I wanted to recognise Bagram Prison, which has, since its inception, upheld human rights to an admirable degree. Truly, their torture techniques and prisoner detainee methods have successfully reformed and rehabilitated countless suspected militants.
I wanted to recognise the “Kill Team”; Andrew Holmes, Michael Wagnon, Jeremy Morlock and Adam Winfield, whose murder of civilians and subsequent documentation of their murderous endeavours and collection of human paraphernalia, was, no doubt, for the greater good of Afghanistan. I can say, without hesitation, that the murder of fifteen year old Gul Mudin truly won over the “Hearts and minds” of Afghans. Well done!
I wanted to recognise all the massacres committed by Nato, among them the Nangar Khel massacre of six civilians, including three children and a pregnant woman, by the Polish Army.
Lastly, I wanted to recognise Robert Bales, the ‘soldier’ responsible for the massacre of 17 civilians in Kandahar, including 9 children. Bales, the motherfucking coward that he is, first murdered then burned the bodies of his victims and has yet to be charged for his crimes despite the fact that over 8 months have passed since the incident.
These are just a few of the hundreds, if not thousands, of crimes committed by U.S/Nato personnel in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to recognise them all given the nature of impunity that characterises Nato efforts in Afghanistan.
Pay attention, you fucking fist full of assholes. If you’re going to remember ‘soldiers’, remember them all, including the countless murderers among their ranks. If you’re going to praise the ‘brave efforts’ of Nato armies, don’t forget to condemn their violations of human rights. If you’re going to recognise the ‘heroes’, recognise the thousands of cowards as well.
Now, get the fuck out of Afghanistan and the “Afghanistan” tag, you hypocritical pieces of shit.
I don’t even want to have their ugly mugs on my blog but I have to reblog this and bear with it. My hatred for the US government and it’s military knows no bound.
American soldier quibbling with me on Twitter for “not being angry over the deaths of American soldiers like you are about Afghan civilians.” Maybe that’s because common sense tells you to sympathize with the invaded, not the invader. What a dumbass.
IMAGINE! China Invades America! [A must watch]
I really like the message sent to Americans..
can they Imagine what they/their government does in the rest of the world?
