What Afghanistan’s Saigon moment teaches us about America’s humanitarian wars

RAEL’S COMMENT:
“Afghans finally have the ability to decide their own destiny. May we all stop to think twice when the next time the neocons spin a humanitarian narrative to breach the sovereignty of a nation.” – Maram Susli is a Syrian-Australian political analyst and commentator

What we’ve just witnessed in Afghanistan is a historical repeat of the ‘Saigon moment’. But the final hours of the US occupation have been accompanied by a cacophony of neocons decrying the decision to end the war.

They cite women’s rights, regional stability and anti-terrorism as reasons the US should have remained in Afghanistan. But those were the very reasons cited for starting the war in the first place, back in 2001. How many more decades do they expect the world to be held hostage to the narratives of ‘the humanitarian war’? It’s now, at the end of the US’s longest war, that we must reflect on the past 20 years, and consider how it was that those false “humanitarian” narratives led us to this point.

Some of the most grave human rights violations occurred at the very onset of the war.
