Back To Afghanistan...


I just read an outrageous article by Brian Cloughley on the Counterpunch website which really reinforces my belief that Canadian troops should not be involved in Afghanistan.

It seems that American officials are imposing tolls on roads they deem to be in need of tolls. In this country of abject poverty, starvation and violence, they are demanding a $20 toll on the Kabul-Kandahar highway from every driver that uses it. $20 in a country where the average schoolteacher earns $70 a month is not pocket money, it's everything.

And - surprise - Coca-Cola rears it's ugly, destructive, exploitive head in the third world once again. A new Coke bottling plant, worth $25 million, was just opened in Kabul (the owner of which lives in Dubai). For a little perspective, here is the state of public nutrition in Afghanistan today, according to the Senlis Council:
"After five years of intensive international involvement in Afghanistan, the country remains ravaged by severe poverty and the spreading starvation of the rural and urban poor. Despite promises from the US-led international community guaranteeing to provide the resources and assistance necessary for its reconstruction and development needs, Afghanistan's people are starving to death. . . . . More than 70% of the population is chronically malnourished, while less than a quarter of the population has access to safe drinking water."

So...reconstruction? Nah, screw that. We'll keep robbing from the poor to give to the rich, because what do starving people need more than anything? A multinational corporation stealing their water, transforming it into poison and selling it back to them! It's all very logical in the framework of colonialism. It makes reports of Canadian troops handing out candy to Afghan children sound even more absurd.

CANADA OUT OF AFGHANISTAN NOW!
