Virginia Pratt’s Thoughtful and Inspiring Letter to Senator Kerry:
Dear Senator Kerry,
I am told that we are spending 10 million a day on the War in Afghanistan. From what I can see, the money would be better spend it if were flushed down the toilet. At least it would not be lining the pockets of warlords while also causing death and destruction.
We have been in Afghanistan for over 9 years with nothing to show as a positive outcome for either us or the tortured Afghan people. The country is riddled with corruption. The infrastructure – roads, water, sewer system and electricity are close to non existent. The children, especially girls, have almost no access to education. The life expectancy is as little as 45 years old because of the poverty, the harsh conditions, and the lack of medical care. Women have only two rights - the right to pray and the right to obey their husband. Women are sold and forced into marriages at very young ages. The country is brimming over with widows, orphans, and maimed people forced to live on as little as a dollar a day. Afghanistan has been plunged into the dark ages.
The actions of our military have not been heroic. Rather, the use of drones, and night raids, have terrorized and killed civilians. The war has resulted in at least 7 million citizen casualties, far more than 9/11. The recent reports of US military claiming bones of killed civilians as “trophies” further demonstrates the depraved outcome of our military intervention. Hardly a day goes by without reports of civilian casualties including young children and occasional wedding parties.
