RE: The United States‘ Bombing of Afghans Villagers in Afghanistan is Genocide. The United States Is Committing War Crimes Against Afghan Villagers. Commander General John Nicholson Need to Be Prosecuted for War Crimes.
Dear Secretary- General Guterres:
War crimes are being committed against Afghan/Pashtun villagers. I believe the new U.S. Trump strategy in Afghanistan is genocide- the intentional killing of the Afghan/Pashtun villagers, who are the only roadblock to the Trump administration’s exploitation of the Rare Earth Elements (REEs). At one of his recent media events, Trump himself boldly stated that he wanted the United States to “exploit” the REEs His friends, Michael N. Silver of American Elements, a company that specializes in mining REEs and his adviser, billionaire friend, Stephen A. Feinberg of Dyncorp will benefit from this exploitation. The vast untapped deposits of REEs are located on the Afghan/Pashtun villagers’ land especially in Helmand Province and other areas throughout Afghanistan. The Afghan/Pashtun villagers are fighting to defend their land that is being taken from them for control over the REEs. It is really not about terrorism. It is really about exploiting the Afghan’s REEs! I believe the Afghan Villagers are not terrorizing the United States, but the United States is terrorizing the Afghan villagers.
The United States under the command of Trump and ultimately under the command on the ground of General Nicholson is cowardly attacking the Afghan/Pashtun villagers using phosphorus and other chemical bombs against them. Just yesterday, on August 28, 2017, thirty five (35) Afghan villagers, many women and children, were killed in Shindand District in Herat Province. This killing of Afghan villagers/civilians is happening throughout Afghanistan every day-mostly unreported by the media. It is escalating under Trump’s new strategy of genocide of the Afghan /Pashtun villagers, who are the road block to his exploitation of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth.
This illegal targeting, bombardment and killing of Afghan villagers needs to stop. Those responsible for these war crimes must be indicted and prosecuted in lawful tribunals. The United Nations needs to do its job, send a team to the sites of war crimes in Afghanistan, investigate these war crimes, and prosecute these war criminals.
Please see the attached photo of an Afghan child that was killed for REEs. How shameful!
