Renaming US mass murder in Afghanistan: meet the new war, same as the old war | Stop the War Coalition

The US-led NATO war on Afghanistan has lasted so long they’ve decided to rename it, declare the old war over, and announce a brand new war they’re just sure you’re going to love.

The war thus far has lasted as long as US participation in World War II plus US participation in World War I, plus the Korean War, plus the Spanish American War, plus the full length of the US war on the Philippines, combined with the whole duration of the Mexican American War.

Now, some of those other wars accomplished things, I will admit — such as stealing half of Mexico. What has Operation Freedom’s Sentinel, formerly known as Operation Enduring Freedom, accomplished, other than enduring and enduring and enduring to the point where we’re numb enough to completely overlook a new name as Orwellian as Freedom’s Sentinel (what — was “Liberty’s Enslaver” already taken)?
