Subject: It is time that U.S., global and Afghan scholars meet to discuss and analyze the current war approach, which has only escalated war and created more instability, to evaluate ways to end the war and bring peace. To date, I believe that the only advice that the U.S. government has been relying upon when forming its foreign policy and war strategy for Afghanistan has been from military think tanks, scholars with former national security , DOD and intelligence backgrounds and careers; basically all war mongers and war profiteers.
For example the United States has relied upon advice from the Kagans, the RAND corporation, and Afghan Americans like Zalmay Khalizhad, Ehsan Bayat, and former Afghan communists, who are now working for the U.S. Department of State, Voice of America, CIA and Department of Defense. I believe these war profiteers will do anything for a dollar, which is the main reason the United States is in such a mess and Afghanistan is a narco-state and so corrupt.

To the Honorable Joe Biden
U.S. Vice President
Dear Vice President Biden:
I believe Afghanistan is occupied but the Afghan majority Native has not surrendered. As history has shown, the Native Afghan fought Alexander the Great, the British and the Soviets for its freedom. The Native Afghans are now fighting to defend their homeland and independence. I believe this war cannot be won by the U.S., it is wrong, and the U.S. should leave Afghanistan. There has been enough loss of life and trillions of dollars. The forced-signing of the bilateral security agreement would only escalate the war in Afghanistan and the surrounding region.
It is time that U.S., global and Afghan scholars meet to discuss and analyze the current war approach, which has only escalated war and created more instability, to evaluate ways to end the war and bring peace. To date, I believe that the only advice that the U.S. government has been relying upon when forming its foreign policy and war strategy for Afghanistan has been from military think tanks, scholars with former national security , DOD and intelligence backgrounds and careers; basically all war mongers and war profiteers. For example the United States has relied upon advice from the Kagans, the RAND corporation, and Afghan Americans like Zalmay Khalizhad, Ehsan Bayat, and former Afghan communists, who are now working for the U.S. Department of State, Voice of America, CIA and Department of Defense. I believe these war profiteers will do anything for a dollar, which is the main reason the United States is in such a mess and Afghanistan is a narco-state and so corrupt.
I believe to stop this blood shed and further chaos, the United Nations , France, China, Russia, England and the United States need to act and hold peace negotiations now with the Afghan Freedom Fighters to reach an agreement that can lead to true peace and stability.
From the Indus River to Amu River this area has always been Afghanistan by the Afghan Native, who have always fought the foreigners to defend this area and keep it independent. I fear that the path the present U.S. government is taking will only lead to an escalation of war, further blood shed and instability in Afghanistan and the region.
I think it is wrong for the U.S. government to spend more tax dollars to try to make it look like it has won a war in Afghanistan which is not winnable. Instead of sending Secretary Kerry, Senator Carl Levin, National Security Adviser Rice , Special Amb. James Dobbins, Secretary Chuck Hagel and others to Kabul to force or twist the arm of Karzai to sign the proposed bilateral security agreement, which it looks like he has refused to sign, the U.S. Government needs to stop playing games and leave Afghanistan.
It is a shame that Secretary Kerry is calling the Advisory Jirga a Loya Jirga, It was not a Loya Jirga but simply what Karzai called it to advise him not to be a decision making body. The only participants were war profiteers, drug traffickers and government puppet employees, absent were true tribal leaders, religious scholars and representatives of the majority native Afghan.
After twelve years the war cannot be won. War is not good. I believe the bilateral security agreement if signed will lead to more war. I believe too many U.S. dollars have been wasted and paid to the corrupt war lords and war profiteers that we could not afford then and can no longer afford. I think if Karzai does ultimately sign the security agreement it will be when the U.S. officials force him to sign it in the middle of the night like was done before with the previous agreement. I believe Karzai will be under duress and coerced to sign it. I think after all Karzai has been the United Sates’ puppet and paid very well and the U.S. government believes it is time to return the favors and pay up by signing the agreement to continue the occupation for decades.
Now Voice of America is reporting that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is in Kabul meeting with Northern Alliance Leaders, such as Afghan Defense Minister Bismillah Mohammadi and Deputy Interior Minister Ayyub Salangi, as a way to put pressure on Karzai to sign the proposed bilateral security agreement. I think that Defense Secretary Hagel may be talking to these Northern Alliance government members about how to get rid of Karzai if he continues to not sign the agreement.
I believe Karzai is in jeopardy of being couped or assassinated if he continues to refuse to sign it. The U.S. government has a history of encouraging such actions and meddling in the internal affairs of other countries. Take a look at what happened in Honduras a few years back when U.S. Ambassador Hugo Llorens was in Honduras. He was involved in the coup of Honduras’ president. For your information, Ambassador Hugo Llorens was appointed as Deputy of the U.S. Mission in Afghanistan Recently, I met with him in Afghanistan in the fall of 2012. I believe the U.S. government is bound and determined to get this bilateral security agreement signed by Karzai no matter what actions, covert or overt ,it has to take.
I believe it is all about the U.S. government wanting to have permanent military bases in Afghanistan as part of its national security plan to locate permanent forward operating bases along its perceived new outer security perimeter. Afghanistan- the heart of Asia, the Caspian Sea Region, and the Middle East are just the United States’ new outer security perimeter along with the Pacific Rim. It is the shift from the cold war location of the U.S. military bases to a relocation of its forward operating bases near oil, REEs and its perceived enemies and the other superpower China. What better way to keep and increase the defense budget and military apparatus then by continuing wars, causing division amongst ethnic groups and Muslims, and cowardly killing Pashtun tribal leaders and scholars. I believe it also makes it much easier to justify to the American people these new permanent military bases and operations.
After twelve years of conversations with U.S. government officials and their paid military think tank consultants, I believe and I am sad to say the U.S. government does not care about scape-goating and killing the Afghan majority especially in the villages near and around the REEs deposits in Helmand where innocent Afghan villagers are killed and their villages wiped out. I believe the U.S. government only cares about the war profiteers and those Afghans they can pay off. It is not about creating a democracy or rebuilding Afghanistan for its people or even stopping terrorism now. I believe it is all about the U.S. building its permanent military bases in Afghanistan, having a permanent presence there, and being able to control the REEs and other resources.
I am sad that during the past thirteen years Afghanistan has become the most corrupt, narco-state on the planet. I believe that is what the U.S. government’s war and foreign policy has created in Afghanistan and will continue to do so if the U.S. foreign policy does not change, the bilateral security is signed, and the war strategy is not changed to a true peace strategy. This craziness needs to stop. I hope the United Nations along with the five countries mentioned earlier meet with the Afghan Freedom Fighters to come to a resolution for true peace. There has been enough suffering.

A few years ago, Mr. Mohmand organized educated Afghans intellectuals across the world who drafted a comprehensive plan for peace. Presently, he has united many different Afghan peace organizations under one umbrella. The goal of this network is to unite Afghans to bring true peace in and the independence of Afghanistan. This network wants to be the bridge between the Afghan freedom fighters and the silent Afghan majority, and the Western World in any peace negotiations.
