Casting aside any intention that Washington plans to end its occupation and war against Afghanistan in 2011 or anytime in the foreseeable future, Gen. David Petraeus declared “We are in this to win. That is our clear objective.” Commenting on the General’s statement, New York Tines reporter Dexter Filkins wrote, “Almost every phase of the war [in Afghanistan] is going badly. In June, 102 American and NATO troops lost their lives, more than in any month since the war began. The major offensive in Kandahar , the most important city in the Taliban heartland, has been slowed because of worries over the lack of local support. The Afghan government and army show few signs of being able, or even willing, to take over.. In the United states, public opinion polls show that a majority of Americans have turned against the war.” (7/5/10)The most important question facing the antiwar and social justice movements is: What do we do now?If ever there was a time for these movements to join together to plan united protest actions, this is it. Hundreds of movement activists have already registered for the National Conference to Bring the Troops Home Now to be held in Albany, New York on July 23-25.and many more have expressed plans to attend.
