At Revolution Books in NYC on Tues. June 29 - The U.S. War of Occupation in Afghanistan: McChrystal Out, The Horror Grinds On... What is Happening?
Obama's recent firing of General McChrystal as top general in Afghanistan is a big deal-- and reflects serious contention among sections of the U.S. ruling class over how to prosecute this bloody occupation. It's been 60 years since a president removed the senior commander in a war zone. McChrystal will be replaced by another war criminal, David Petraeus, who was already head of "Central Command," (McChrystal's boss). The Washington Post quotes Obama: "This is a change in personnel, but it is not a change in policy." Translation: The criminal war in Afghanistan-- which on June 4, 2010 officially became the longest war in U.S. history -- continues.
