Before kick off at the Super Bowl, a moment of silence for the Afghani children that have been starved to death by the American government impounding their food money would have been appropriate. It would have shown that Americans care and wish their government would unfreeze the more than 9 $billion, so Afghani children can be fed and go on living. Some US Congressmen and women spoke out.

Although the CIA managed Western media usually doesn’t report such horrors of  genocidal US foreign policies, in this case CBS News, already more than three months ago exposed this US crime against humanity. [1]

Taliban blames U.S. as 1 million Afghan kids face death by starvation

The Biden administration has already frozen about $9 billion in Afghan government assets

Signs of desperation can already be seen in every corner of the country.

Taliban blames U.S. as 1 million Afghan kids face death by starvation

Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban’s chief spokesman, told CBS News that the U.S. was to blame for the rampant poverty in his country, for freezing government assets that his group wants access to. He said the resumption of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan should not be held up over what other countries consider widespread human rights violations.

On the one hand they say a million children will die, but on the other, the U.S. are holding our money,” he said. “The U.S. should release our money so we can save more children.”

According to the United Nations, if humanitarian assistance doesn’t come soon, more than a million children will die of malnutrition.

The Biden administration has already frozen about $9 billion in Afghan government assets and, along with other nations, says any future financial support depends on the Taliban proving that it has moderated since it was last in power.

Some American Congressmen and women have shown they care – in December saw published House Democrats call on Biden to unfreeze Afghan central bank [2] 

46 Democrats, led by progressive Reps. Pramila Jayapal (Wash.), Sara Jacobs (Calif.) and Jesús Garcia (Ill.), stressed that they … agreed with international calls for the U.S. to avoid imposing economic measures that would contribute to Afghanistan’s collapsing economy. They tweeted, There could be “more civilian deaths in the coming year than were lost in 20 years of war.”

Again in January, Amid hunger crisis, Biden urged to release frozen Afghan funds [3] 

There is a growing outcry from lawmakers for President Biden to release billions in frozen Afghan funds to help ease a hunger crisis there.

But just three days ago an outrageous theft of part of the above mentioned deposits of Afghan money was announced: [4]

Biden Moves to Split $7 Billion in Frozen Afghan Funds

The president intends to use the Afghan central bank’s assets to fund humanitarian relief in Afghanistan and compensate victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

On October 7, 2001, the USA invaded Afghanistan to avenge the al-Qaida-orchestrated September 11 terrorist attacks. The stated aim of the US invasion was to hunt down Osama bin Laden and overthrow the Taliban government for providing safe haven to al-Qaida leaders, but it was the CIA back in 1996 that invited Osama bin Ladin and helped Saudis create Al Qaida to fight the Russians who were combating CIA armed, funded and trained extremist Islam tribes to overthrow the women liberating Socialist Kabul government. Even ex-US Sec. of State Hillary Clinton on YouTube has admitted US creation of al Qaida. No Afghani has invaded any country, and the Afghanis have not deserved 20 years of American led killing the soldiers of the Taliban government’s army which continued to control and govern the Afghan countryside. And since Afghanis, had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks, stealing their desperately needed money to give to 9/11 victims of the Saudi suicide attackers is would be an incredible crime against humanity, which would cry for retribution.
