The Pentagon and its generals increasingly have a negative (and correct) connotation of being influenced and guided by the miltiary-industrial complex and private profit over public good. To change course, we must end our endless wars and bring our troops home.
Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, a signer of our Congressional War Powers Pledge, writes in a new op-ed that President Biden ought to keep with the May 1 withdrawal date and bring our troops home from a pointless war in Afghanistan.
After two decades of fighting, and two trillion dollars spent, a simple cost-benefit comparison cannot justify a continued military occupation of Afghanistan.
As Congress debates limiting or repealing the Authorizations for Use of Military Force, it's important to remember that until we dismantle the empire's global military footprint, our endless wars are likely to continue.
Ret. Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute and Processor Charles Kupchan explain why it's imperative that the U.S. withdraw from Afghanistan by May 1, and why conditions in 2021 are secure enough to not require military occupation.
It was wrong to invade Iraq in 2003, and it was a mistake to go back in 2014. We must finally correct these errors and bring our troops home now, writes ret. Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis.
