Afghanistan: NATO kills, wounds, own soldiers

NATO Warplanes Kill NATO Soldier, Wound Others in ‘Friendly Fire’ Incident in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan Sep 4, 2006 — NATO warplanes killed one of the force’s own soldiers and wounded several others in a “friendly fire” incident in southern Afghanistan on Monday, NATO said in a statement.

In a sense, this is symbolic for NATO.

On paper, it has lofty principles of promoting peace, human rights, etc.

However, in practice, they constantly attack those very principles: not just in Afghanistan, but also in Yugoslavia, Iraq, etc.

More British dead in Afghanistan and Iraq: here.

And here.

Canadian dead: here; and here; and here.

More Afghanistan: here.

And here.

And here.

    Letter from Richard Sanders, editor of Press for Conversion!, magazine of
    the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT)

    Greetings!
    COAT has a new issue 46-page issue of Press for Conversion!, called:
    The New Face of Terror in Afghanistan:
    How so-called “Democracy” Empowered our Allies; the Fundamentalists,
    Warlords and Drug Barons.
    A phoney democracy – dominated by warlords, drug barons, oil industry
    representatives and World Bank administrators – has now been successfully
    imposed upon the people of Afghanistan. This was achieved thanks to the
    efforts of the world’s major military and economic powers, including
    Canada. The new issue of Press for Conversion! exposes every scandalous
    step in this US-led, Canadian-assisted “regime change.” This whole sordid
    process, which took five years, ensured that one set of brutal,
    fundamentalist warlords (the Taliban), was replaced with another (the
    Northern Alliance). To read more about the theme of this issue, click

  2. Some sample articles on a brave Afghan woman MP
    Several articles in this issue focus on Malalai Joya, an incredibly brave
    woman who is Afghanistan’s youngest MP. She recently spoke at the NDP
    convention in Quebec City. We were very fortunate to be able to arrange for
    her to speak in Ottawa, and I was truly honoured to introduce her to a
    crowd of 450 people at Prof. Denis Rancourt’s “Activism Course” at the
    University of Ottawa. Read more about her talk

    here.

    Afghanistan’s Youngest Revolutionary

    Hoping you’ll find our latest issue to be not only fascinating reading, but
    also a useful resource in the struggle to bring our military troops home as
    soon as possible!
