As the usual lying media, intelligence and military officials, and politicians debate “Who Lost Afghanistan?”, the people of the U.S. and the E.U. must demand full accountability for those responsible for the Afghan debacle. This begins with a commitment to end the idea of imposing a unilateral Rules-Based Order backed by U.S. and NATO military force. We must never again demand that nations surrender their sovereignty to that order. And it should include a commitment to aid the government that is constituted there in a process of economic development, with full cooperation among Afghanistan’s neighbors, along with Russia, China and the U.S. It is not adequate for American officials to admit “We didn’t have the foggiest idea” of what we were doing there — we must overcome the damage by doing what should have been done years ago, recognizing that peace comes from development, not war.
