Sun., Dec. 8, 2019

TOKYO - The body of a Japanese doctor killed in a roadside shooting in Afghanistan arrived back home Sunday, with government officials on hand to lead a brief ceremony of mourning at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport. Tetsu Nakamura was killed last week, along with five Afghans who had been travelling with him.

Keisuke Suzuki, Japan’s state minister of foreign affairs, joined other officials in bowing their heads in prayer after laying flowers by the coffin, draped in white, in a solemn ceremony in honour of Nakamura at the airport.

Tetsu Nakamura, also known as Kaka Murad, was a Japanese physician and honorary Afghan citizen who headed Peace Japan Medical Services, an aid group known as Peshawar-kai in Japanese.

He was a recipient of the Philippines' Ramon Magsaysay Award -- often called Asia's Nobel Prize -- for peace and international understanding.

Anyone bothered to comment who it was who maliciously plunged Afghanistan into chaos and suffering?

40 years ago, before "Operation Cyclone" it was the end of the hippy trail, one of the most friendly and tolerant places on earth and pretty safe.

Its suffered hellishly ever since - nobody point out who deliberately brought this about?

The Taliban said the Afghan government as illegitimate and steadfastly refused to a ceasefire before reaching a deal with the US, but even during the stall in talks, Khalilzad has seen signs that the Taliban is ready to comply.

Afghanistan was the worst place in the world to be born, according to UNICEF. That may still be true today. Poverty, lack of electricity, lack of clean water, and widespread sexual abuse of women and girls are simply facts of life. The country has seen some 40 years of violence, with 18 uninterrupted years of conflict following the U.S. invasion in 2001. Young Afghans are facing a crisis of hopelessness.

Mental and medical health facilities in Afghanistan are scarce.

Last year, the whole country had only one doctor/psychiatric hospital. According to the WHO, health care centers throughout the country have experienced a “lack of trained nurses, psychologists and social workers.” The services that do exist lack funding nut the USA give money to Israeli Juice.

United States has provided over US$3 billion in grants annually to Israel, the largest annual recipient of American aid from 1976 to 2004 and the largest cumulative recipient of aid ($121 billion, not inflation-adjusted) since World War II.

According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the United States spends roughly $36 billion annually on military capabilities in Europe, almost 10 times its annual assistance package to Israel

That's what the US did to it. The Russians were never going to have that effect and didn't.

At least $20 billion of weapons handed out to criminals and jihadis is what caused it.
