Afghanistan: More Troops Won’t Bring More Peace

February 17, 2009

An increasing number of people are rightly questioning the War in Afghanistan. However, it is amazing to me that so many people are still silently following along with the Obama Administration’s plan for a troop surge of an additional 30,000 troops. War wasn’t the answer in Iraq, and it is not the answer in Afghanistan. We cannot let Afghanistan become the exit strategy for Iraq. We need to push the peace community to rally behind efforts to prevent the troop surge in Afghanistan, advocating instead for the diplomacy and sustainable development that will actually create peace in Afghanistan. Take action here!

Check out this video by the Brave New Foundation and the entire serious on the War in Afghanistan.
