Assange on Afghanistan

Last Train to Mirabad 
Julian Assange took on the US  
Wikileak'd ten years war in Afghanistan 
Julian roams downstairs in Woolwich Court 
Thinking what would Pilger and Ellsberg do now? 
Waiting to be taken through tunnel to Belmarsh Prison 
Where ghosts of IRA meet 
Ronnie Biggs in special secure unit 
No Wikileaks today about Sapper Jamie Larcombe 
No mention of his Afghan mate
Both dead in Mirabad 
                        - Ian Curr, 2011

Julian Assange telling it like it is 10 years ago.

A brave intelligent man who has been abandoned by the Australian government and who deserves our unwavering support and gratitude. Julian and Wikileaks has done more than anyone to lift the fog that impairs our vision and understanding of the violence perpetrated by the US empire over the past 20 years.

‘Nation building’, ‘liberating the Afghani people’, bringing democracy’.

What shite! Perpetual war is the goal. Where next?

And Australia tagging along like the lackey we became many years ago.
