More US atrocities in Afghanistan

Issue No. 2286

A video showing US marines urinating on Afghans they had killed is sadly not surprising.

The Pentagon said it would find the culprits. Hillary Clinton said the behaviour was inconsistent with US aims and attitude in Afghanistan.

But this is all lies. More than ten years into the war, Afghanistan has been reduced to rubble by imperialism and the horrors it has released.

US soldiers have killed, tortured and humiliated hundreds of thousands of Afghans. Until they leave the country these atrocities will continue.
