Gov't-Opposition Advocate Troops To Afghanistan?

AUSTRALIA: Australia's federal imperialists are again considering sending troops back to Afghanistan by early next year, allegedly to help stabilise the country and continue the war on terrorism. At least that's what we're led to believe.. [But most know that these 'pre-emptive wars' are really about 'resource wars' in the Middle East, and allegedly to 'primarily secure an oil and gas pipeline' and 'strategic bases' for NATO.]

And there is simply no Opposition to the plan by Labor, the party that is supposed to be representing people who oppose war. And if not why not?

Are they're going to leave Opposition to War up to the minor political parties who really have no say whatsoever in the two party preferred system of government in this country? Or has Labor simply acknowledged that now HoWARd has all the power in the Senate that they have no choice but to opt for the very same policy or lose any form of credibility as a federal political party in this country.

Saving face not good enough!

Other sources say this move by the government and the Opposition (working in tandem) has been well thought out and it's really all about quelling the opposition to the U.S.-backed Afghan puppet government and the enforced rule of President Hamid Karzai's failed attempt at democracy, which has branched out once again into all out war in the failed state.

But why would the Australian government want to again wage a war on the other side of the world on the failed democratic ideals? And why don't' we get the truth instead of this rhetoric about the need to help 'stabilise' and continued war on terror which simply means slaughter any opposition to the puppet government!

The Coalition of the Killing sent troops after the [false flag operation by the USA] Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in an earlier war? Then an alleged democratic government was purported to have been elected by the people...So what other good reason does the Australian Government and Opposition have now, besides another imperial invasion to quell an uprising to the alleged democracy?

I know! To finally track down Osama (where have you bin), Bin Laden, similar to the very same excuse used before and no different to the threat alleged by the other demon in Iraq 'ABRACADABRA' Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who incidentally cannot be found either. Even though there have been numerous reports of alleged close sightings, contacts with his alleged lieutenants and even his laptop computer and also some hearsay about him being wounded.

Bush's demon-aid tactic strikes again

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is the George W Bushit's mastermind demon to help bolster support to continue to wage the US-led Illegal and degrading war on Iraq. Another report that senior aide to Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (a George Bushit demon) used time and time again, as an excuse to wage war in Iraq has allegedly been captured.

All they're doing is trying to help bolster support to attack freedom fighters in Afghanistan who don't agree with Hamid Karzai's rule? People who really believe they have no say in how their country is run, other than the US shadow standing besides its choice of government - opposed to a great many of the indigenous people who live there.

The HoWARd government was considering the new troop deployment, which could be a force of between 250 and 700, along with allegedly more civil aid for Afghanistan's reconstruction? A decision would be made in July.

Pity Labor doesn't come to the rescue though? No more war in Afghanistan No?

The Federal Opposition 'the well paid losers' are now advocating sending Australian troops back to Afghanistan too along side the government.

"The opposition is prepared to engage in a discussion with the government on this matter, if the government wants to have it," (the well paid loser) Labor's leader Kim Beazley told reporters.

He says a suggestion that Australian troops may be sent back to Afghanistan is long overdue and reflects the Government's failure to devote enough resources to the area? But maybe he should move to Afghanistan and take up residence as well?

If he thinks Australia should have any a roll to play in enforcing the new failed US puppet Karzai Government. And as if there is no opposition to war in this country at all, either here, or abroad in the International Community - then who is going to argue their views if it's not the Opposition in a two party preferred system of government? In a so called democracy?

If the U.S.-backed Afghan President Hamid Karzai's failed democracy in Afghanistan is anything to go by then the US led war on Iraq may also go on indefinitely and even more troops may have to eventually be sent there?

The deployment would come at a busy time for Australia's defence forces, which have about 1,700 personnel deployed an overseas operations, including about 1,400 in and around Iraq.

The National Security Committee is said to be considering an option to send more troops and civil aid to the country, with Britain and the United States indicating they would welcome a further commitment from Australia but behind it all is the US need to quell opposition to its rule.

Australia sent special forces troops and air support to the U.S.-led war on terrorism in Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, but withdrew them after the Afghan Taliban fell late that same year.

U.S.-backed Afghan President Hamid Karzai allegedly won a presidential election last October, and parliamentary elections are due to be held in the country on Sept. 18.

The United States commands an 18,300-strong international force, most of whom are American, fighting resistance and militants in Afghanistan and hunting their leaders, allegedly including al Qaeda leader (where have you bin all my life), Osama bin Laden, blamed for the Sept. 11 attacks.

More than 70 U.S. soldiers have been killed in action and more than 400 wounded in Afghanistan since 2001, while U.S. and Afghan government figures show about 150 freedom fighters have been killed this year alone.

A new analysis of the Australian community on illegal and degrading wars on sovereign nations, from the influential No War Strategic Policy Institute, has found only 14 percent of Australians supported military assistance to the war on human rights, while 58 percent disagreed.

Labor's foreign affairs spokesman, Kevin Rudd, (another well paid loser) says the Opposition has been stressing the importance of Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism for several years and it is time the Government redefined its focus.

"Afghanistan remains the centre for the war against terrorism," he said.

"Osama bin Laden is alive and well, Al Qaeda is alive and well and their base continues to be the eastern part of Afghanistan.

"If we're serious about the war against terrorism, that's still where the effort is to be concentrated."

Perhaps he too could set up residence down the street in Kabul from Mr Beazley and only then could he confirm the importance of imperialism in the quality of his life that would no doubt be sadly diminished in what would otherwise be in the midst of a bloody war.

No more war, bring the troops home and let's start the peace process! If the Opposition doesn't oppose war who does? We the People!

Pentagon chiefs cleared over prisoner abuse?
US: The Pentagon has cleared itself of any high-level responsibility for the abuse of detainees in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay because it was the guard dogs that initiated the torture all along.

There is no justification for torture
In the weeks since the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison were revealed, evidence continues to seep out of similar mistreatment of prisoners in other US military detention centers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay.

Afghan children lose High Court battle against detention
