The stomach-churning massacre in Afghanistan is one more inevitable result of a wrong and unwinnable war, and the only possible response is to end it. Want to understand how the Afghan people feel?

"This is a war, stupid. Invading another country and occupying it for more than a decade cannot come on the cheap, morally or humanely...This is not a diplomatic or PR challenge that requires media theatrics. It's a disaster that requires strategic and political decisions."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
