From Maoist Revolution;Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan/حزب كمونيست (مائوئيست) افغانستان—the Bilateral Security Agreement between the American imperialists and the Puppet Regime:
The Imposition of a Prolonged and broad
Resistance on the People of Afghanistan:
On November 21, 2013 the puppet regime convened its fourth sham Loya Jirga.
The first Emergency Loya Jirga was held to endorse the imperialist invasion
and subsequent occupation of Afghanistan and the enslaving decisions of the
gathering of the national traitors in Bonn held under the plumage of the
invading imperialists for approving the puppet regime of Hamid Karzai. The
second Loya Jirga was held to ratify the colonial constitution; the third
Loya Jirga was held to approve the Strategic Agreement between the American
imperialists and its satraps. The issue for the current and fourth Loya
Jirga, then, is the signing of the Bilateral Security Agreement which will
grant strategic military bases to the American occupiers and its imperialist
allies in Afghanistan. Formally, the imperialist occupation and the colonial
condition of the country will be prolonged for many years to come.
Thus, the regime that in the eleven years of its shameful existence has held
two fraudulent general presidential and parliamentary elections, and has
upholding the feudal institution of Loya Jirgas four times, has served the
objectives of the imperialist occupiers--all of these elections and Loya
Jirgas have been orchestrated to nurture the puppet regime. Hence, the
country's condition is colonial and semi-feudal. Colonial in the sense that
the fate of Afghanistan and its people is ultimately determined by the
imperialist occupiers. Semi-feudal in the sense that the reactionary ruling
classes forming the puppet regime possess both feudal and bourgeois
comprador characteristics in a proportion similar to the ratio between the
Loya Jirgas and the sham elections.
In fact, since the inception of the disgraceful puppet regime, Loya Jirgas,
and not the fraudulent and sham elections, have been the real source of
decision making. Now the occupying imperialists, through their imported
feudal and bourgeois comprador democracy, are holding a Loya Jirga to earn
legality and legitimacy for their occupation under the name of the people of
Afghanistan. However, our people clearly understand that the overwhelming
majority of the participants of the Loya Jirga have been carefully selected
by the occupiers and the upper brass of the puppet regime, bought with
hundreds of millions of dollars, to approve and ratify the continued
existence of the occupying forces and consequently ensure this regime's
survival and continuation. Therefore, we cannot call the decisions of such a
gathering the expression of the free will of the people of Afghanistan.
Additionally, this Loya Jirga is intended to formalize the conditions that
have been in existence for the past eleven years with the explicit agreement
of the puppet regime--conditions that are this regime's source of vitality.
Although the legal immunity of the occupying forces has been, without
exception, an informal fact since the beginning of the invasion and
occupation, in the past year the puppet regime has only now made this an
issue of contention so as to cast itself as independent and nationalist The
puppet regime's fictitious independence, and its opposition to the killings
of civilians and intractable military operations, is nothing new. But such
exhibitions have never stopped the murder of civilians, nor have they
curtailed the reckless military operations of the occupying forces.
The reality, despite all phony political shows, is the presence of the
occupying forces and the colonial condition of the country under occupation.
Such a condition can take various forms and configurations, as well as
different levels of intensity; no cunning, deception or masquerades can
remove its objective and subjective effects.
Right now a legal opposition to the granting of legal immunity to the
occupying forces has been constructed; it will be brought to the Loya Jirga
so as to play a "democratic" role. The participants of this so-called
opposition have divergent incentives. The objections of some of members of
this opposition are intended as a bargaining chip for gaining a better
colonial agreement. Others oppose the agreement simply because they are
afraid of being targeted by the armed opposition; otherwise they do not have
any disagreement. Others are those who are consciously playing the role of
opposition in order to complete the political drama. Then there is a fourth
section of this legal opposition that consists of those who are under the
delusion that if they oppose the legal immunity for the occupying forces
they will perform their patriotic and national duty--only these participants
of the Loya Jirga can be addressed so as to challenge their delusions and
convince them not to commit national treason with good intentions.
The Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan proclaims that it is
fundamentally against any security pact with the American imperialist and
other imperialist powers, just as it is against the continued presence of
the occupying forces in the country. We believe that signing any security
agreement with the American imperialists and other imperialist powers, and
agreeing to the continued presence of the occupying powers at whatever level
and for whatever duration is to also agree with the occupation and colonial
condition of the country--it is nothing other than national treason.
We proclaim that the current Loya Jirga, put together by the occupying
imperialists and their satraps, has no normative basis for being the
representative of the people of Afghanistan; it is only a gathering for
executing another national treason, following previous national treasons,
particularly the treason of the consultative Loya Jirga on the strategic
agreement with the American imperialists.
We proclaim that the security agreement between the American imperialists
and the puppet regime, that would result in the continuing presence of
American strategic military bases in the country, imposes a prolonged and
comprehensive resistance on the people of Afghanistan based upon the
revolutionary and peoples national armed resistance and for the purpose of
forcefully throwing out the occupiers and bringing down the puppet regime.
Down with the occupying imperialists and their puppet regime!
Advance towards launching and carrying forward a prolonged revolutionary and
national people's war of resistance!
