The U.S. government has appointed a JSOC war criminal/terrorist, General Austin Scott Miller, who based on his past record, under his leadership will terrorize Afghan villagers and escalate war crimes in Afghanistan.
Over the years the Afghan villagers/the freedom fighters have not wanted to talk with the Afghan puppet administrations because these puppet administrations have signed agreements with the United States that provide that the U.S. cannot be prosecuted for war crimes committed in Afghanistan.
Now, the U.S. government has appointed Gen Scott Miller terrorist, to lead the forces in Afghanistan. As part of JSOC, General Austin Scott Miller, is responsible for many war crimes committed against the Afghan villagers/civilians. He needs to be prosecuted for his war crimes on the ground but instead he is being let loose to command all of the forces against the Afghan people. The Afghan puppet administrations have paved the way for war crimes to be continued against the Afghan people with impunity. The U.S. government has appointed a JSOC war criminal who based on his past record, will continue and escalate war crimes in Afghanistan. I ask, who are the terrorists in Afghanistan?
During these past seventeen years, the U.S. with its war strategy, has terrorized Afghan women and children in the villages. Everyday Afghan women and children, especially the Pashtun, are raped, kidnapped, tortured, bombed, their houses demolished, their Rare Earth Elements and other natural resources exploited, imprisoned for political views, forced into prostitution, and killed. In many spots in Afghanistan, the U.S. especially its CIA, holds Afghan women in secret detention centers. The United States has and is committing war crimes against the Afghan villagers. The majority ethnic group, the Pashtun, who are the natives, who live in areas rich with Rare Earth Elements, are being ethnically cleansed and genocide is occurring. A peace conference is not gong to stop this terror. There has to be an end to the U.S. war and occupation, which has been escalated by the Trump Administration.</div

RE: War Crimes Committed Against Afghan Villagers in Afghanistan
Dear High Commissioner Pillay:
The genocide, massacring, torturing, raping slaughtering, several hundred thousand of innocent Afghan villagers are war crimes and human rights violations. The United States, NATO, the puppet Karzai government and others have committed war crimes in Afghanistan during these past thirteen years. It includes former President George W. Bush, Vice President Cheney, President Obama, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmusson and other top officials and military leaders in their administrations are the real terrorists.
Muslims around the world are watching the United Nations to see if it brings justice for the Muslim victims in Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries. It is time that the United Nations takes action and moves to have those responsible for these war crimes and human rights violations prosecuted and held responsible. For the past thirteen plus years, the Afghan villagers have suffered and not received any justice. Please stop blaming the victims, the Afghan villagers.
I believe the United Nations must have the courage to prosecute these crimes and not bow down to the super powers, which are responsible for these war crimes, and cover up these crimes. At the end of the Soviet Union’s war in and occupation of Afghanistan in 1989, the United Nations did not convene and prosecute the Soviet communist and Afghan communist war criminals, who committed war crimes against the Afghan civilians. They did not receive justice then. Shame on the United Nations. Now, it is happening again. Another super power, the United States and the corrupt Karzai government are committing war crimes against the Afghan villagers and thus far there has been no international tribunals to prosecute these war criminals such as Rashid Dostum and Vice President Fahim Qasim. Again, the United Nations is covering up these crimes for the superpowers. There can be no peace in Afghanistan without justice. The Afghan people deserve justice just as much as the Bosnians, the Rwandans, the Jewish victims in World War II, etc, who received justice through international tribunals. Please show me that as an individual dedicated to human rights you will see that the Afghan villagers, who are victims of war crimes and human rights violations, receive justice. Please work with your United Nations’ colleagues to help these Afghan villagers receive justice.
It is time that the war and occupation must end and all U.S. and foreign troops must leave including the special operation forces and other U.S. hired mercenaries. I believe that the United States sets the example in the world and must always follow the rule of law and go above and beyond it. However, based on much documentation of scholars, journalists, lawyers, human rights groups, forensic specialists, other professionals and those on the ground, that has not occurred during the past thirteen plus years when it comes to our involvement in Afghanistan. As many opine and as I believe, the facts show that the UnitedStates has been operating like a rogue nation above the law in Afghanistan with its full scale invasion and occupation of Afghanistan (which was not responsible for the tragic events of 9/11) with its use of carpet bombs, experimental weapons, and remote drone assassination strikes, with its destruction of Afghan villages around the vast REE deposits in the Pashtun areas, with its use of JSOC command of special operations forces in cooperation with CIA operators and Blackwater CIA mercenaries, who raid villages, terrorize and kill civilians, snatch, grab, render, and torture those Afghans, who oppose and who have opposed the war/occupation, and the corrupt , drug trafficking Karzai government .
The Afghanistan Freedom Fighter is the majority of ordinary Afghan villagers, who have been the victims of this U.S. led war and corrupt puppet government. These Afghans, who resist, are not war profiteers, war lords, war criminals, corrupt government officials, and/or drug traffickers. I believe it is time that U.S government stop the propaganda. I believe many in our government, especially top officials, know who is “really” profiting from the drug trafficking and this war, and why our country “really” invaded, occupies and wants to continue to have nine permanent military bases in Afghanistan and to have another Afghan puppet elected president. It is not really about counter terrorism or true democracy (that is just the propaganda needed to justify our country’s actions to the T.V.watching American people). Rather, it is about establishing and maintaining our military presence in Afghanistan, the heart of Central Asia, to control the flow of gas, oil and REEs in the Caspian Sea Region, Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is about having a military staging ground to launch small attacks and drone attacks in the area against those who oppose the war/ occupation, and military-based U.S. foreign policy. It is about, after the end of the Cold War, (the defeat of the Soviet Union by the Afghan Freedom Fighters) the United States’ rebuilding its defenses and establishing its bases away from Europe and now in Central Asia the new buffer or outer security perimeter. It is about allowing the CIA- sponsored restoration of the drug trafficking, which makes a few Afghans and Americans, government officials, defense contractors and others wealthier and also funds the secret operations of the CIAs and JSOC’s dirty war. I believe the good citizens in America and the world are beginning to awaken and realize that the real terrorizing of the Afghan people is being committed by the bullying superpower, the United States, NATO and their agents and puppets.
IN addition, the Afghan majority is awakening and realizing that this proposed bilateral security agreement that United States government is trying to force the Afghan government to execute is in reality a way to allow JSOC through its special operations forces in cooperation with the private, now wealthy mercenaries such as Blackwater and CIA operatives, to continue to terrorize the Afghan villagers. The Bilateral Security Agreement will allow the continuation of the flow of drug trafficking and the control of the Afghan people’s REEs, and the oil and gas rich Caspian and greater region. The Afghan villagers will continue to be terrorized and subjected to suffering. Let’s be honest the U.S. Government really does not care about the ordinary Afghan people. It cares about attaining its national interests in Afghanistan at whatever cost. It cares about the Afghan war lords, drug traffickers, Afghan communists, war profiteers, and Afghan government puppets, which will help it, achieve these national goals and implement its militaristic foreign policy in that region at any cost and by any means. I do believe the United Sates can achieve its goals in the region by following the law and doing it the right way.
It is a fact that since the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan the opium drug trade has soared. The United States has restored such drug trafficking. TheUnited States’ foreign policy in Afghanistan, which is driven by the decision making of the CIA, Pentagon, and military think tanks such as RAND, supports the thriving drug trafficking. What is even better in their eyes, our government and the drug trafficking Karzai government and Northern Alliance can blame the soaring drug trade on the so – called “Taliban” . The U.S. government has managed through propaganda in the media to blame, scapegoat and collectively punish the Afghan people for the tragic events of 9/11 even though they are not responsible for the tragedy. It is a fact that under the Taliban government rule the drug trafficking and poppy production was almost completely eradicated. Even the United Nations General Assembly in October 2001 acknowledged this fact when it referenced the Taliban’s 2000 Opium Eradication Program. Every Afghan knows that historically the Northern Alliance has always been the drug traffickers in Afghanistan. Every Afghan knows that presently it is top officials in the Karzai government such as the Karzai family, the Vice President Fahim Qasim, the Governor of Nungarhar Gul Agha Sherzai are the drug traffickers. I believe it is also common knowledge that the CIA and JSOC fund their dirty, secret operations through dirty money that comes from laundering that drug money through CIA shell companies and banks in the Middle East and off-shore. It is common knowledge that JSOC does not report to Congress. The CIA started this type of funding for its operations back in the 1980s. As many have discovered, unfortunately heroin has become part of the war agenda. I believe the United States is responsible for making Afghanistan a narco-state with a corrupt puppet Afghan government with many top officials involved in this drug trafficking. The war profiteers are becoming richer and the U.S. war machine grinds on at the expense of the ordinary Afghan majority, who suffer and will continue to suffer due to a military/intelligence controlled foreign policy.
This war and occupation in Afghanistan, with JSOC special operation forces, CIA operatives and private mercenaries is beyond the rule of law, outside congressional oversight and fits the definition of terrorism. The Afghan villagers, who are the majority, are the victims of these terrorist acts. They are the victims of these war crimes. These war criminals, Afghan and American, whoever they are and whatever positions or jobs they hold, including the executiveoffice, must be prosecuted in lawful tribunals for these crimes. Afghan victims, just like the Bosnians, Rwandans, the Jewish people etc, have a right to justice. Unfortunately, as we have witnessed in Afghanistan during these past four decades, without justice there can be no peace.
We need true peace in Afghanistan, which will not occur unless all foreign troops including U.S. special operation forces and hired mercenaries leave Afghanistan. We will not have true peace unless the war criminals are brought to justice in lawful tribunals- criminal and monetary justice. I hope you have the courage to help bring justice for these Muslim victims of war crimes.
