Press TV interview with Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, and E. Michael Jones
Afghanistan’s political figures have called for an unconditional ceasefire across the country, as a peace summit concludes in the capital, Kabul.
Several Afghan leaders present at the traditional Grand Assembly said they wanted to see an immediate end to years-long hostilities in the country. Thousands of Afghan officials have attended the summit known as Loya jirga to discuss peace talks with the Taliban. They also talked about the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan. The Taliban have dismissed the assembly’s call for a truce, saying its decisions would not be binding for the group. Meanwhile, the US has held a sixth round of peace talks with the Taliban in the Qatari capital Doha.
One Thought to “Afghan politicians call for unconditional ceasefire”
” The Taliban have dismissed the assembly’s call for a truce, saying its decisions would not be binding for the group.”
Maybe by studying the history of the american Indians and the history of the Palestinians, they know full well what colonial powers mean by truce : some time off to regroup, plot then unleash devastation again.
If the colonial powers were interested in peace for humanity, they wouldn’t be there in the first place.
“On October 21, 1837, Osceola and 81 of his followers were captured by General Joseph Hernández on the orders of General Thomas Jesup, under a white flag of truce, when they went for peace talks to Fort Peyton near St. Augustine.” – (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osceola)
