"The peace agreement between the USA and the Taliban made no mention of human rights or of women. Under the agreement, impunity was preserved for serious crimes under international law by all parties. In September, the US administration cemented this position by imposing sanctions, including asset freezes, against the Prosecutor of the ICC, who was poised to lead an investigation into war crimes and crimes against humanity by all parties to the conflict since 2003."

Outcome of US interventions is blood in the sand: Jeffrey D. Sachs, Irish Examiner, 190821

The wanton waste of a 20-year unnecessary war. "Less than 2% of the US spending on Afghanistan, and probably far less than 2%, reached the Afghan people in the form of basic infrastructure or poverty-reducing services"

Good analysis from Jeffrey D. Sachs.

AFGHANISTAN: IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST ATONE FOR ITS INVOLVEMENT IN THIS FUTILE WAR AND OCCUPATION

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM)

PRESS RELEASE – 17 August 2021

• IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST ATONE FOR ITS INVOLVEMENT IN THIS FUTILE WAR AND OCCUPATION

• IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST CLOSE THE SHANNON WARPORT EXCEPT FOR REFUGEES AND HUMANITARIAN AID

• TWENTY YEARS OF US-LED WAR AN ABSOLUTE CATASTROPHE FOR AFGHANISTAN

• SOLIDARITY WITH ALL AFGHANS AT THIS TIME ESPECIALLY WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS

The Irish Anti War Movement is appalled at the scenes unfolding in Kabul as desperate and frightened Afghans cling to the side of aeroplanes while taking off. This is surely the most iconic horrific image of the legacy of a failed, futile 20-year war that should never have happened and a terrible rebuttal to the failed foreign policies and imperial hubris of the US, Britain and the NATO countries.
