Canadians: Tell your MP – End the War In Afghanistan Bring the Troops Home NOW!

Pan-Canadian Call in Day Tell your MP – End the War In Afghanistan Bring the Troops Home NOW!
September 21, 2009

Parliament had started the fall session.. It is likely that the session will break for another election. The peace movement needs to make sure that the war in Afghanistan is an election issue, but to do so we need to send a message to the parties today. Send a note to the PM and your MP and remind them that that a majority of Canadians want to end the war in Afghanistan NOW.

The Conservatives have said that they will not extend the mission after the 2011 end date but NATO and the US have already openly called for Canada to stay. We have an important job in this country to bring our troops home. Canada’s international reputation as a peacekeeper is being used by NATO countries as an argument in favour of sending their own troops to Afghanistan. If Canada extends its commitment to the war, that is a set back for the anti-war movement internationally.

It is unlikely that there will be an extension before a federal election. The Conservatives and Liberals,  both of whom are responsible for the tragedy unfolding in Afghanistan do not want to run an election where the war is an issue. But we have to make the war an issue now, during and after the election. To that end the Canadian Peace Alliance, has produced new resources to build that campaign.

********************************************

Soldiers and civilians are dieing and injured every day. It is time to make absolutely sure the Canadian troops are brought home.

This war has been going on and on for 8 years.

Each year more troops die. In 2000  it was 12.  In 2009  358.

Each year there were more.  This year isn’t over yet.

Canada has lost 131 to date.  The numbers are growing.

When civilians die their relatives want revenge and many have joined the Taliban. The more civilians that die the more people want revenge for their deaths. Personalty I can not say I blame them. If someone wiped out my entire family or my wife or my children I would be out to kill those who killed them too. Wouldn’t you?

Nato invaded their country. Afghans are defending their country, they have every right to do that. Apparently over 11,000 have died defending their country and they have a few more million that could join the fight.If we keep killing their people they will surely never run out out of people to take up arms against NATO.

It’s time to say no more war.

The US decided to attack Afghanistan long before 9/11, not because of it.  Because they wanted the pipeline.  The US and Pakistan helped put the Taliban into power in the first place, some years back. The CIA created Al Quada. They created the very enemy we are now fighting. How bazaar?

The new Guy is just and Ex Oil company employee who worked for Unicol Oil. One of the companies who was after the Taliban to build a pipeline back in the nineties.  The US picked him not the people of Afghanistan. So we are not their to give Afghans democracy.

Canadians are not being told the Truth.

Harper lied about how much the war was costing.

They have not told us how many have been injured. Why?

The troops have also been exposed to radiation compliment of the Bunker Buster bombs the US dropped, coincidentally the US stopped using them after there was and Earth Quake in Afghanistan. Could a Bunker Buster cause and Earth Quake. Yes it can. One can only guess how much Depleted Uranium has been used.

This war has nothing to do with 9/11. Usama  Bin Ladin has never been connected to it. They were looking for Saudi Arabians not
Afghans.

This war is over Gas and Oil nothing more nothing less. They want control over the entire Middle East. That is the agenda and has been for many years.  Why are troops fighting for the US agenda?

Troops from any country are to defend their own soil and help others in need. Not to destroy a people or a country for their own agenda.

In Iraq over a million people died and 5 million children are now orphans but let Muntazer al-Zaidi tells you why he Threw the Shoe.

So how many Afghans must die before they stop warmongering?

How many more young military men and women must die?

Hell call or write your MP’s and say no more.
