Afghans Protest US Occupation

10 years of war in Afghanistan should teach policy makers he US cannot win in any military sense; all the bullets and bombs and drones will no defeat an idea for after all the Taliban comprise a religious ideal with an armed guerrilla movement attached.

[Hundreds of Afghans have marched through the capital, Kabul, on the eve of the 10-year anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan, condemning the US as occupiers and demanding the immediate withdrawal of all foreign troops.

About 300 men and women gathered early in the morning on Thursday with placards and banners accusing the US of "massacring" civilians while denouncing President Hamid Karzai as a puppet subservient to Washington.

"Occupation - atrocities - brutality," read one sign held aloft by two women.]
