In what may appear to the average westerner as an uncharacteristic change in tone, the Taliban has issued an open letter directly to the amerikan people calling for immediate peace negotiations, and citing the long list of u.$. crimes in the country. The letter, which spans about 7 pages in its english translation, serves as […]

Months have passed since the so-called liberation of Mosul by the u.$.-led coalition in Iraq, and the city has yet to recover. Very little construction has taken place, as most buildings remain in ruin, hardly the sight one normally associates with a city rejoicing for its freedom. The Iraqi army, with the full support of […]

Kabul is under siege. A series of deadly attacks in the heart of the capital just this month, and a history of many others in the past few months have reinforced this fact. Simply put, the expiration date of the regime has been set, and although we cannot be for certain when it will fall, […]

The Afghan occupation is unraveling. The invaders have been forced entirely into a defensive posture, always reacting to the advances of the Taliban forces, never advancing themselves. We hear sporadic news of increased aerial bombing—succeeding mostly in killing Afghan civilians—and the targeting of so-called drug labs, but nothing of real advance. The imperialists are stuck, […]

Catch flies with honey, rats with garbage. Don’t you just hate when you laud somebody for their heroism and strength of character and they turn out to be a common murderer?

Happy Xmas, but the war is not over. Far from it, so that is one track that walmart can knock off its christmas playlist, that is, assuming they have not forgotten a war is going on. It is unfortunately easy to forget, after all, as the Afghanistan war becomes one of the least reported on […]

It is “Black Friday” in amerika, and while consumers enjoy 50% and 60% off new laptops and cell phones, the empire’s army is to thank. Afghanistan sits on an estimated $3 trillion reserve of untapped mineral resources, including vast amounts of lithium—estimated to be one of the largest reserves of lithium in the world. Lithium […]

It is Thanksgiving day in the united $tates, and among celebrations of imperial plenty, we must look to remind people at whose expense this country and its treasures were won. We should ask ourselves the very difficult question: How do we get what we have? The holiday itself is already steeped in an unsavory, genocidal history […]

The latest casualty in the war between the u$ navy and the concept of competence, the u$ guided missile destroyer USS Benfold sustained light damage yesterday after colliding with a Japanese commercial tug boat that lost propulsion and T-boned the nearly 2 billion dollar danger-canoe.

A little over a month ago, in a room of uniformed military commanders and the press eager to catch a glimpse of the new presidential aesthetic, Trump referred boastfully to a “calm before the storm” that their meeting represented. Characteristically coy, and perhaps uncharacteristically restrained, Trump bid the press wait and see what would happen. […]

In a public letter to amerikan lawmakers, which was quickly funneled to international news agencies, top pentagon officials talk deliberately on options in deploying military force against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
