ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Afghanistan’s Dirty War:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Why the Most Feared Man in Bermal District Is a U.S. Ally By Julius Cavendish / Kabul On Tuesday, Oct. 04, 2011

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Abstract:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Commander Azizullah commands a ferocious 400-man militia in Afghanistan. He and his mercenaries are on the U.S. payroll as part of a secretive U.S. Army program.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Azizullah and his men are responsible for numerous war crimes in Afghanistan. Out of the several of such incidents discussed in the TIME report, here are a few:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ * On Nov. 30, 2009, three men heading home to celebrate ‘Id ul-Qurban with their families were stopped. According to an elder from Bermal, the Afghan district where the incident took place, Commander Azizullah and his men bound their hands. Then, the elder told TIME, Azizullah drew his pistol and shot them. There was no evidence that these men were insurgents, the elder says. “But he killed them anyway.” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ The story, corroborated almost word for word by an internal U.N. report dated January 2010 and calling for Azizullah’s removal from the U.S. payroll.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ * “He killed an old woman in Pirkuti because he thought she was the mother of a suspected insurgent” says U.N. officials in two separate internal reports seen by the reporter of TIME.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ * “Elders from a number of districts in the area have provided independent accounts of Azizullah’s involvement in criminal activities (theft), indiscriminate killings and … detaining young boys [and] reportedly sexually abus[ing] themƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦”ƒÆ’‚£ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¡‚¬

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ U.N. officials raised their concerns about Azizullah over a year ago. But a NATO’s Lieut. Colonel John Dorrian, chief of operations called the organization’s investigation of their mercenary “a derogatory report via U.N. channels last summer, but when we tried to research it, there was really little information to substantiate what were essentially claims”. No action was taken by NATO.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The same nations that make up NATO holds smaller nations accountable for their actions and constantly calls for war crimes investigations!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ No expert panel has even been setup by the Secretary-General of United Nations to investigate these crimes, as he did with smaller nations.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Navaneetham Pillai, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights never consistently calls for war crimes investigations of NATO actions in Afghanistan!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ What right does the U.S. Department of State have to press war crimes investigations on other nations when the U.S. is conducting a dirty war in Afghanistan?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Human Rights Watch in New York, International Crisis Group in Belgium, Amnesty International and ACT NOW in London never call for war crimes investigations in Afghanistan!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Why the silence?

  1. Sri Rohana Says:

    U.N.S.G Ban Ki Moon is a war criminal. That is why he is silence over NATO war crimes in Afghanistan. As a foreign minister of South Korea he who approved to send Korean troops to invade Iraq and Afghanistan with NATO invaders. This is the reason he is holding this post with the support of Yankees and NATO brutal.
    U.N.H.R’s Navinathan Pillai, Amnesty International, HRW, International Crisis Group and Asian Human Right Watch are deaf and dumb in massacres in Afghanistan by NATO invaders as they dance according to NATO tune. Those puppets are open their mouth when the string moved by NATO or for bribes.
    Their double standards have exposed to entire world. U.N.O and its organizations and the other so-called N.G.O’s gone below the sluts and pimp level.
    Now Afghan liberation movement has come to highest level and it’s present day similar to Vietnam Liberation fight. Brave Afghans are fighting against more than 30 NATO and other fundamentalist countries. Very soon U.S and NATO invaders have to hide their tails between legs and leave from Afghanistan. Long Live Afghan Liberation Fight!
