    Kucinich War in Afghanistan Privileged Resolution Update

    Hi, Dennis here,

    This week a privileged resolution will be brought to the floor of the House of Representatives to make an attempt to try to get America out of the war in Afghanistan.

    This resolution, which I wrote, requires the President to remove the troops within 30 days from the time the resolution is passed and no later than December 31st, 2010.

    There are many reasons why we need to get out of Afghanistan; I’ll just name a few.

    We’re spending hundreds of billions of dollars – total waste – because the Afghanistan central government is totally corrupt. We have a thousand troops whose lives have been lost. And many more injured, some of them permanently. Countless individual Afghanistan citizens have been killed or injured as a result of this conflict.

    We should take heed from the Russian experience in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is not going to be conquered and we have to understand that the weight of history has been against our efforts from the start.

    Now we have to determine whether or not America will take a new direction in Afghanistan. Not to go in deeper with the surge, but to get out. That’s what is going to be discussed this week in Washington.

    Please, help us. Please, get the word out. Please, contact anyone who you think could be influential in getting members of Congress to pay close attention to this vote. The vote will occur on Wednesday.

    Thank you, as always, for your help and for your determination to see a more peaceful world created.

    Thank you.

    From Dennis Kucinich:

    Afghanistan Debate Begins in U.S. House Early This Afternoon

    Today’s the day.

    This afternoon we’re going to have a vote on whether or not the United States gets out of Afghanistan or stays there indefinitely.

    It’s time that Congress weighed in. The Constitution makes it very clear that the War Powers are vested in the Congress. Unfortunately, a series of Presidents have made decisions to take the country into a war and to keep the country in war without seeking Congress’ expressed permission. So this is, in fact, a Constitutional issue and that should be of interest to members of Congress from all over the nation, whatever their political persuasion.

    And it should also be of interest to people that we can’t afford this war. When you consider the fact that you have 47 million Americans who don’t have any health care, they don’t have it because they can’t afford the premiums. You have 15 million Americans out of work. You have another 10 million Americans, at least, who could be losing their homes this year due to foreclosure. You would think that we have other priorities. You would think that it would be time for us to focus on things here at home.

    Well, today is our first opportunity to send the message not only to the White House but to the world that America is ready to work with the world community to meet the challenges of global security.

    But we’re also going to start taking care of things at home. Because Americans deserve the security of a job, the security of housing and the security of health care. And we have to start arranging our priorities to make sure that we take care of people here in this country instead of trying to tell people all over the world how they ought to live.

    Thank you.

    Kucinich Forces Congress to Debate Afghanistan

    By Robert Naiman

  • BCBS says:

    The American strategy in Afghanistan is neither to stabilize the country nor to remove terrorism. Do we remember the USSR war? Who were the very hands feeding these Talibans and training Alqaeeda against USSR? The whole world knows that America and Pakistan supported them in every possible way with Ammunitions, explosives and trainings in CIA and ISI camps. The very American Media used to call them as Jihad’s fighting against USSR. Just because at that time it was in America’s Interest to use them Against USSR. But now they have been termed as terrorists. And there’s a reason behind portraying them as terrorists. Actually American Government needed a reason to enter Afghanistan. And why they wanted to enter Afghanist is the American Government’s interest and policy to reach Pakistan’s nuclear weapons, Gawadar Port and many other like these. One more reason is to reach China. Pakistan’s nuclear power is a major threat to Israel and American could do anything to save Israel. If Gawadar port becomes operative, South Asia would become the World’s trade Hub and America would never want that again. And why America wants access to China I think every one of us can understand that.
