Dennis Kucinich: Get Out of Afghanistan, Too

Obama has proposed an $82 trillion dollar WAR SUPPLEMENT to the budget. I do not believe in war, whether in Afghanistan or along the Mexican border, where a huge chunk of this money is also destined.

I am hearing that "some people on the Left" believe that a US invasion of Afghanistan is justified because it will liberate Afghani women. Oh yah, I am sure a military invasion is just what they need to improve their status; doesn't war ALWAYS help women the most???

"Hey, hey, President Obama,
Invading Afghanistan is nothing but trauma!"

It's A Thousand Splendid Suns (Khaled Hosseini) that, after all these years doing "anti-war," has made me a genuine pacifist. Not speaking out STRONGLY against this course of action NOW is a mistake. There are viable alternatives that don't involve the US rushing in to yet another place it has no business being.
