Here’s what we learned from Afghanistan
In solidarity with peace and justice for all,
Mike Fox for the PDA National Team
Much has been written—and remains to be written—about the tragic debacle that was our invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.
But we at PDA feel it all goes back to one fundamental tenet: attempting to inflict your will upon others through the use of violence via deadly weaponry is a recipe for disaster.
War is failed politics. We must continue to use peaceful means and negotiations that benefit all in order to prevent future quagmires like we saw in Afghanistan.
There is a road forward to global peace. It just doesn’t include violence.
