"AFGHANISTAN AS AN EMPTY SPACE: THE PERFECT NEO-COLONIAL STATE OF THE 21ST CENTURY"BY MARC W. HEROLD (PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS AND WOMEN'S STUDIES, UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE)
The Afghan people have been suffering under the US invasion and occupation for five long years. Thousands of civilians lost their lives, devastated by US weapons.
Herold showed his sympathy and his support for the Afghan people through his most meaningful and extraordinary project to collect the data about civilian casualties and post it on the Internet as an eye-opener for the world. Prof. Herold is the shining side of the US society.
While the US government exports bombs, destruction and terrorists to Afghanistan, he put his whole energy and effort to show to the world the hollowness of the US official and media claims about democracy and liberation in Afghanistan. He shows that the US has no interest in democracy and human rights in Afghanistan and he proved this by his unprecedented "The Afghan Victim Memorial Project." He uncovers the lies of the US administration and its client in Kabul.
Prof. Herold linked his heart with ordinary Afghan people and through his extensive research exposed the real nature of the US war on terror, revealed the lies, laid bare the Afghan lackeys of the White House and the kind of society being built under so-called reconstruction.
For RAWA, Prof. Herold is one of the most beloved and true friends of the Afghan people, he stands side by side with our sorrowful people, he shows us that there is a huge difference between the US people and its government. His book is a window into the continuing Afghan tragedy and provides another example of how a government with a history full of aggression and brutalities perpetrated around world cannot be the angel for peace and democracy to Afghanistan.
