The perpetual occupation of Afghanistan has become so normalized and mostly serves as background noise to Americans -it’s even jokingly referred to as the “forever war” – accepted as just a constant reality. A soldier dies now and again. A couple dozen civilians get killed in another bombing. It’s never enough to stir the population to pressure Washington to stop it. The endless war drags on.
Abby Martin covers the whole truth about the Afghanistan War, from the CIA construct of the 80’s through today’s senseless stalemate. Two decades, three administrations, tens of thousands of lives; it’s time to #EndTheForeverWar.
