Forum: Afghanistan occupation in crisis

Solidarity flyer

With parliament debating the war in Afghanistan, the occupation and the role of Australian troops is back in the spotlight.

There has been a huge increase in the deaths of Afghan civilians as well as Australian troops. Obama’s troop surge now at its peak has failed its original aims and Gillard is just as committed to continuing the occupation as Rood and Howard.

The Karzai regime in Afghanistan has begun negotiations with the Taliban with the support of International forces.

The Afghani resistance forces are gaining ground and being brought into government.

Two questions must be asked:

Why is the occupation continuing?

And why are Australian troops there’?
