Poor Afghan people pay the price for the US 'War on Terror'
I would like to highlight a particular point that Marc Herold makes in the following piece: Barack Obama and Afghanistan (published by CounterPunch, on Aug 6, 2008). He asks if Senator Obama's plans for Afghanistan are any different or better than that of Senator McCain and the Bush administration. The answer, he argues, is negative. That Obama's policies are likely to produce the same failures and miseries.
