MONTEREY PEACE COALITION: END AFGHAN WAR

by David R. Henderson, [October 7, 2009]

 

 

 

[HollywoodInvestigator.com]  The Peace Coalition of Monterey County, CA, held a protest rally on Friday, October 2, 2009, calling for the U.S. government to exit Afghanistan rather than follow President Obama's strategy of expanding the Afghan War.

The demonstration was held at Monterey's Windows-on-the-Bay Park on Del Monte Avenue, from 5 to 7 p.m. It marked the 8th anniversary of the bombing of Afghanistan by the U.S. government.

Peace Coalition spokesman David R. Henderson said: "Eight years is enough. In fact, it's too much. The war should have ended on President Bush's watch. Now it's to up to President Obama to correct Bush's mistake."

Henderson said the original purpose of making war on Afghanistan was to capture Osama bin Laden, but now it is to nation-build. "Like many government programs, the program outlasts the original rationale and so the rationale keeps changing."

Henderson noted that historians call Afghanstan "the graveyard of empires," adding that, "Both Britain and the Soviets were hobbled by their attempts to colonize Afghanistan. Why does the U.S. government think it will fare any better?"
