WikiLeaks released part one of the AKP Emails. AKP, or the Justice & Development Party, is the ruling party of Turkey and is the political force behind the country's president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Part one of the series covers 762 mail boxes beginning with 'A' through to 'I' containing 294,548 email bodies together with many thousands of attached files. The emails come from "akparti.org.tr", the AKP's primary domain. The most recent was sent on July 6, 2016. The oldest dates back to 2010. It should be noted that emails associated with the domain are mostly used for dealing with the world, as opposed to the most sensitive internal matters.
In the archive, there is a letter with date April 18, 2016 from Kadir A. Mohmand to the Members of the US Congress, calling them to take actions in order to stop the US war crimes and human rights violations in Afghanistan. It would be interesting to see some key points:
- I strongly believe that the United States government soldiers, and “selected” house slaves, the Afghan puppet administration, cannot fight the Afghans Freedom Fighters themselves on the ground so the U.S. is resorting to bombardment, drones, and mercenaries against Afghan civilians, the villagers, and terrorizing innocent Afghans in order to try to hold back the Afghan Freedom Fighters. The U.S. is using Afghans to kill Afghans.
- The genocide, massacring, torturing, raping and slaughtering of several hundred thousand innocent Afghan villagers in Kunduz, Helmand and other Pashtun areas are war crimes and human rights violations. Genocide of the Pashtun villagers is being documented. If you look at the definition of terrorism, I believe the U.S. government and its selected agents and mercenaries are the real terrorists, who have terrorized and are terrorizing the Afghan civilians, especially in the villages. I believe you, the United States Congress, needs to start calling for an investigation of these war crimes and end this war.
- I strongly believe that the U.S. government does not support Afghanistan's sovereignty as it illegally invaded it in 2001 and continues to occupy Afghanistan with its military bases, its 9,500 troops, its numerous CIA paramilitary forces, and the hundreds of thousands of private security contractors and mercenaries on the ground, who are paid with United States' funds.
- It is pretty obvious that the United States not only “selected” the Afghan puppet leaders but controls them. According to Kerry, the “selected” government will continue and there will be no elections in 6 months or two years. This type of government is not of the Afghan people, by the Afghan people and for the Afghan people. It is a “selected” administration of the U.S. and its war profiteers, by the U.S. and its war profiteers and for the U.S. and its war profiteers for the purpose of implementing U.S policy.
- Why is the U.S. government occupying Afghanistan? It is not about supporting its independence or sovereignty. It is not about caring for the Afghan people. It is not about terrorism, al-Qaede or Daesh. Afghanistan is not responsible for the tragic events of 9/11. The U.S. government's 28 classified pages, which were referred to recently in the media and recent lawsuits ,are pointing to Saudi Arabia. Yet the U.S. government chose to invade and occupy Afghanistan. I think it is time that the U.S. government reveal why it is really in Afghanistan. It is all about the vast untapped Rare Earth Elements (REEs) in Afghanistan especially in the Pashtun areas such as Helmand and about relocating its outer defense perimeter to Central Asia with Afghanistan at the heart. The U.S. Pentagon referred to Afghanistan as the “Saudi Arabia of lithium...”
- The invasion and occupation of Afghanistan is really about the U.S. and NATO having direct access and control over Afghanistan's vast untapped Rare Earth Elements (REEs), which are worth trillions. These REEs are vital to the manufacture of technology and defense systems. The U.S. sent down geologists with special operations forces into the REE deposits of the Helmand region at the start of the invasion. The U.S. even knew about these REEs deposits before the war. I believe control of the REEs is the real reason for the invasion, continued occupation and covert war and genocide against the Afghan villagers.
- Congress must stop funding this ugly, non-winnable war in Afghanistan and its greedy war profiteers. Congress must stop these war crimes against the Afghan villagers, who have suffered enough these past four decades.
