November 2013: The murder of the Taliban leader by US drone strike in Pakistan, on Friday, November 1, 2013, on the eve of peace talks between the government of Pakistan and the Taliban can have had only one aim; to scuttle the talks.
The United States has no wish to bring the Taliban to any negotiating table to create peace, neither in Pakistan nor in Afghanistan, as it would not benefit them and their war on terror.
The war on terror has be maintained in order to claim that this or that country has to be attacked in order to get their hands on the resources of that country and also, and especially, to maintain and increase the attack on the freedoms of the individual under the guise of “fighting terrorism”.
Both the attack and consequent occupation of Iraq and the occupation of Afghanistan have nothing to do with fighting terrorism but everything with getting access to “vital” resources, ideally without paying for them, bar in the blood of young men and women of the military, and also with creating, for everyone knows that that will be the result, more terrorism, and the means to creating ever more draconian laws to destroy the freedoms, such as they are, of the individual in our so-called free and democratic countries.
