As the United Kingdom approaches a direct confrontation between domestic and foreign policy funding, and as the situation in Afghanistan begins to darken ominously with sponsored media sources around the world changing tack on the ninth anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan, anti-war campaigners gather in Parliament Square after a rally in St James Park to forcibly enter the Square in order to assert their right to protest against the war.
In recent days international media have speculated on policy changes taking place in the Whitehouse (US) suggesting that a new go-for-broke approach is to take place in order to attempt a final defeat of anti-occupation forces operating in Afghanistan.
The policy change appears as Afghan President Hamid Karzai begins the process of abandoning his western allies in favour of diplomacy and engagement with anti-occupation forces by visiting those forces in their traditional heartland. At the same time, the US surge has now completed and an additional 30,000 US troops are now in the country.
The go-for-broke policy change, the completion of the surge and the distancing of Hamid Karzai from occupation forces all now point to a last ditch attempt by the United States to smother the country in violence in an attempt to claim victory.
Major and serious loss of life is now expected. The democracy villagers enter the square, evict bailiffs and their belongings from their tent, and begin the process of removing fencing from the Square to facilitate the protests that will be required should the United States lose complete control of itself prior to its withdrawal from Afghanistan.
