Rise rise rise…

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” ~ Buddha

Brisbane-based soldiers Darren Smith and Jacob Moerland died on Monday, the bloodiest day for Australian troops since the Vietnam war.


Whatever the challenge, whatever the adversity, whatever the need, whatever challenge lies ahead, whatever the commitment…

Rise it’s time to get on your feet
Rise there’s nothing holding us back
Rise it’s time to get on your feet
Get up and make your stand

Your world’s created by great leaders in the past
Choosing the path for our country
Maybe it’s time to set the future today
It’s good to have you with us


Our future in your eyes in your strong hold
You who see opportunity
Let your courage fight the challenge today
May your mother find the picture


You carry Australia on your shoulders
It’s a steady war times are gone
Men following your footsteps right behind you
Remembering your name
And calling out loud

Peace with Criminals, War with People!
Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan
June 1, 2010

…In the past, through the meddling of Zalmay Khalilzad and Hamid Karzai as representatives of UNOCAL, the US dealt with the Taliban and pumped tens of millions of dollars into their pockets. Today if the Taliban once again comes to power, the US will easily “work” with them and prefer their bloody and suffocating rule of Afghanistan to an independent, pro-democracy and pro-women’s rights government, because the US counts on them as the most loyal group to safeguard its interests in the region. The Taliban also will not forget that the US was their creator, trainer and mentor through Pakistan’s ISI god-fathers.

The current conflict between the US, Taliban, and Northern Alliance is in fact a family matter between them which will be solved sooner or later. When that happens, the ranks of friends and enemies of our people will become clear and the illusion spread by pro-Taliban, pro-April 27 and April 28 treacherous intellectuals will be countered. Under such conditions, it is the duty of pro-independence, pro-democracy and pro-women’s rights intellectuals to increase their organized efforts for a coordinated uprising of our people against all traitors to Afghanistan.

Let the puppet mafia government of Karzai bring together all its agents in the “Peace Jirga” and similar ridiculous shows and by organizing luxury meetings, dance over the dead bodies of our innocent people, but the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), alongside the aggrieved Afghan people thinks that such deceitful games mean throwing salt on the wounds of our people caught in the US/NATO bombings, insecurity, poverty, unemployment and desperation all over Afghanistan.
