MIRAKI: On the Brutal Butchering of Slow-Killing
17 May 2007
To get a better idea what has happened since the US first plundered into Afghanistan in October, 2001 to search for a now-legendary cave hopper on dialysis, I spoke with Dr. Mohammed Daud Miraki, a native Afghan here in the United States with many ties "back home", to tell us all about the long-forgotten people of Afghanistan that the US mainstream media will not. After hanging up the phone, it occurred to me that what is actually going down in Afghanistan is, without any doubt, the greatest crime against humanity in perhaps all of US history.

With today's news of the death of "brutal butcher" Mullah Dadullah Lang, the Taliban's second-in-command man with a "gruesome penchant for decapitation", one is forced for a moment to contemplate the manner and method by each one of us will meet our own certain and eventual end.

So the question of the day is, if you were a citizen of Afghanistan and you could choose the method of your death, would you prefer to go quickly, or would you rather wait to meet your maker, in a most agonizing fashion - one that would take a very, very long time?

Americans are rarely (if ever) told the truth about anything. So what is actually going down in Afghanistan is usually left to articles and blog sites written from people who either live near the line of fire or know somebody who does.

On Saturday, May 19, Dr. Miraki will be speaking at the National DU Conference http://www.wfn.org/2007/05/msg00127.html at East Tennessee State University, along with Dr. Doug Rokke and Cathy Garger. The conference is being sponsored by the Stop-DU Campaign of the Christian Peacekeeper Team and First Tennessee Progressives.

Cathy Garger is a freelance writer, public speaker, and certified personal coach. Living in the shadow of the national District of Crime, Cathy is constantly nauseated by the stench emanating from the nation's capital during the Washington, DC, federal work week.
