The U.S.-led “counter-terrorism” waged for two decades in Afghanistan came to an end with the hasty flight of the U.S. troops. At this moment in time, the world is raising the voices demanding that the U.S. troops should be brought to justice at all costs for its atrocities of mass destruction committed against innocent people in this country and that a stern judgement be made on the criminals.
Iranian President said that the number of women and children killed or injured in Afghanistan for the past 20 years is good enough to see what a terrible tragedy had taken place in this country. He also denounced that the U.S. government is hell-bent on propaganda operations against other countries rather than explaining about this tragedy before the world public opinion.
On September 1, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China noted that the crimes of massacring innocent people in this country by the U.S. and its allies should be thoroughly investigated and the perpetrators certainly be brought to justice while enumerating data on numerous civilian casualties caused by the military operations carried out by the U.S. and NATO troops stationed in Afghanistan. These include scores of the dead and the wounded of more than 100 people caused by bombing of the U.S. air force during a wedding in a local district of Afghanistan in 2002 as well as the incident that resulted in the casualty of more than 100 people including 50 children and 19 women in a village, Herat Province in 2008.
The Japanese newspaper, Tokyo Shimbun wrote that the victims that suffered the greatest misfortune during the Afghan war were none other than the civilians of this country. It also revealed the fact that 55,000 civilian casualties were inflicted since 2009 till the first half of the year 2021 alone, the time when the UN organization assisting Afghanistan started gathering statistics.
The above facts corroborate that all the places trampled upon by the U.S. troops were reduced to the barren land of human rights.
The U.S. should be brought to justice at all costs for its crimes of killing innocent people in different parts of the world behind the veil of the “judge of human rights
