How many solders must die in Afghanistan before the war endsThe war in Afghanistan began on October 7 2001 and heralded an opportunity to change the fortunes of millions.

10 years after the beginning of the war, the cost and sacrifices made by the ‘coalition of the willing’ and ‘civilians of Afghanistan’ is alarming.

The war has costed billions, killed thousands of innocent civilians and has set a path of cyclical devastation that Afghanistan will never recover from.

THE Government and Globalists have lied to us all in the name of a falsified threat. They convinced the world that Al-Qaida was going to take over the world, that Al-Qaida was the biggest threat of the 21st century and that Al-Qaida and its leaders possessed nuclear weapons.

The war in Afghanistan has hardly achieved any of the targets set and is now a burden on the economies of the countries fighting the war.

The recent murder of 5 Australian solders has inspired the following compilation of facts about the war in Afghanistan that the government doesn’t want you to think about.

The 5 Australian soldiers who were murdered had wives, daughters, mums and dads waiting for them to return. None of them deserved to receive that dreadful knock on the door with news that they have been killed.

Final Remarks

Afghanistan as it stands is a cesspit of lies and deceit designed to convince the masses that fighting wars based on political reason is the norm.

Every day, politicians around the world preach on the progress being made in Afghanistan and that the war effort is justified.

ALL troops and military personal must be withdrawn from Afghanistan. The families of all MURDERED solders must be told the truth about why they died in Afghanistan and NOT ONE MORE family should suffer the loss of a father, brother and loved one.
