Malalai Joya on the attack on 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Pakistani Taliban because she did not remain silent about the ongoing crimes and brutalities against women; because, despite her young age, she had the consciousness to stand for her rights and say ‘no’ to the terrorism and misogyny of the creatures of the Stone Age. The world should know that the West, and in particular the U.S. government, have nurtured, supported and armed these dirty inhuman bands for the past three decades.

Drones: waging war on civilians with the click of a mouse

Bombing raids have been used from Guernica and Dresden to Afghanistan as a way to intimidate populations, crush cities and break the resistance of ordinary people. Drones are the latest barbarism in this long, terrible tradition.

Obama’s drones in […]

Afghanistan – the new Vietnam?

The world is mad. Sending more troops to Afghanistan is our exit strategy!

Pakistan: the new frontier in the war on terror?

To understand Pakistan’s present we need to understand two things – it was born of imperialism and is today the child of imperialism. Pakistan is a poor country. It has a population of about 170 million people, 60 percent of whom earn less than US$2 a day – the UN poverty line. 97 percent of its population is […]
