So once again the the people over at Our Journey to Smiles are doubling down on the delusions. The main one is that somehow that all the woes in Afghanistan are because out outside forces and interference. Their latest video states as much.
Why do we spend money like this? Why don’t we use an alternative way? The international community says that drones are used to kill the Taliban. This is not true. We should see the truth. Today, it’s hard to find the truth and no one listens to the people.They kill human beings. Drones bring nothing but bombs. They burn the lives of the people. People can’t move around freely. In the nights, people are afraid. Drones don’t improve people’s lives, they limit the people’s lives. The people are not happy with drones. When they hear the sound of drones, they feel sad.
Drones don’t protect the people of Afghanistan. Instead, drones kill the people of Afghanistan. You hear in the news and reports that every day, families, children and women are killed. Do you call this safety?
But on a serious note I thought that the majority of the drone strikes were in Pakistan and not in Afghanistan. And since my frienemy is no longer working with Rethink Afghanistan so I am not sure if they are still working with Journey to Smiles.
UPDATE: This comment from the video is a good example of what happens when history is forgotten.
Sporkmater you’re missing the point here: drones are killing innocent people, whose relatives will not think of the US better for it. No wonder the Taliban has regained so much support.
On a seperate note, I’m willing to bet that the Taliban would not allow so called agricultural ‘aid’ that is going to poison the whole ecosystem and economy with Roundup pesticides and GMO-slavery. So? yea, maybe they will be better off with the Taliban in charge. Who is to say?
