No to US-NATO wars!

Muhammed Muheisen is a Palestinian photojournalist for AP who has produced stunning, award-winning photos from the West Bank & Gaza, Iraq, Pakistan, & other conflict zones. He is certainly most known for his photos of children, especially Afghani children exiled to Pakistani slums by the US war & Pakistani children relocated to slums by massive flooding or US drone attacks.

Muheisen doesn’t gravitate to the morbid though his camera can hardly ignore it. If anything, he has an affinity for children in all their glory: mugging for his camera, playing (usually in muddy alleys), reading in school, sifting through waste dumps for recyclables, waiting for their working mothers, sleeping rough.

This Pakistani child, his face covered with flies, sits inside one of the wooden carts where so many children seem to find delight in a slum on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan (taken in 2011).

There are so many reasons to demand US-NATO end their murderous wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, but none so compelling as the children forced to live in squalor to facilitate the plunder & enrichment of a tiny handful of predator oligarchs.

No to the US-NATO wars! No to drone attacks in Afghanistan & Pakistan! US-NATO out now!
