Can the Aggressors be Peacemakers in Afghanistan?
By Mahboob A. Khawaja
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, July 27, 2010
Like the failed League of Nations, the UNO is an umbrella institution for debate and time consuming dialogue - a new nuisance model of the 21st century institutional failure. Most UN funding is covered by I.O.U. paper notes by the leading powers. They decide and control what the UN can and should do, not the UN itself. It is a dummy and silent spectator organization witnessing all the global catastrophic disasters in progress.
A global puppet show to deceive the humanity with visual illusions of
intentions, discussions, complemented by lies and deceptions assuming new
titles for the international politics. Bush and Blair have been
replaced by Obama and Cameron to overtake the wars of aggressions in Iraq
and Afghanistan. With changed faces, strategies and aims remain the same to
continue the war against Islam. Today, there was an allied global conference
in Kabul to talk about its reconstruction and future. The question is, why
was Afghanistan invaded and destroyed?
Now, the issue is, how conveniently, the aggressors want to redefine
their strategic role and ambitions in Afghanistan as peacemakers as if they
have achieved the goals of their aggression. Imagine, Adolph Hitler while
occupying France and continuing bombing of London, wanted to organize a
peace conference. Would it have been a logical discourse for the French and
British people to talk peacemaking with the aggressor? Bush and Hitler had
lot in common as both claimed to have the divine support for their mission.
Both tried to destroy the living humanity but fell in disgrace and met
The US and Britain survive on borrowed money from the future generations
as their own financial institutions have collapsed and so are the political
powerhouses and working agencies. But the aid’s long term purpose is to
create more beggars and poverty and dependent nations asking for external
aid and to survive on borrowed future and resources. The discussion
developmental aid and withdrawal of the foreign forces from Afghanistan
sends a clear signal of defeat and prospective surrender to the Taliban
fighting for the freedom of their homeland.
All you need to do is to see the outcomes, the triumphs of the American version of liberty, human rights and justice role models, the inhuman treatment and horrifying photos of the prisoners are easily available from the internet, and the photos speak their own language depicting the American-British civilized achievements in the Arab-Islamic world. Mr. Karzai, the self-made president of Afghanistan, claimed that he and the participating members of the Arab-Islamic world represent the Islamic version of the civility and not terrorism. Mr. Karzai or others in attendance, the Arab-Muslim staged actors do not represent the interest and priorities of the Muslim Ummah.
The people of the Islamic world see them all as a pan on the global political chessboard being financed, supported and kept in office to steal the future of the people of Afghanistan and the Muslim world. He is viewed as part of the problem, not part of any workable solution. If the US and its comrades in arms the UNO, NATO and others were honest and responsible institutions, they should have outlined the priorities for immediate withdrawals of the forces from Iraq and Afghanistan.
More importantly, if there are concerned Arab-Muslim leaders, they should
set the agenda for the resolution of the Arab-Israeli problem, the making of
an independent State of Palestine and the removal of the illegal Israeli
settlements in East Jerusalem. Apparently, there is no conference scheduled
to deal with the real issues facing the global humanity. The states, the
main puppet actors in the global political arena can be found existing on
legal papers, not in the real world actions, and certainly not in a
responsive manner to the concerned international community.
The aggressors do not wish to see the problem, that they are the real
problem, not otherwise. Sooner they leave Iraq and Afghanistan, the better.
The ancient and civilized people of Iraq and Afghanistan know it well what
is peacemaking and who are the aggressors. The aggressors appear desperate
to quit and the Kabul conference seems to explain that urgent necessity but
intellectually confused, morally corrupt and militarily exhausted, and not
sure how best to get out of the terrible mess they have created for the
people of Iraq and Afghanistan and the whole of the humanity in turmoil.
