"The prevailing military regime with a civilian facade is the optimal combination for us to strike a deal with. The Indian illusion needs to be buried once for all: that a democratic government, as we understand it, can ever be conjured into existence in Pakistan. The army is the largest political party by far and it has conquered the only country it is capable of conquering — its own." [more]

'I am sure the BJP welcomed Americans because they saw it (the US war against terrorism) not as a war against terrorists, but as a war against Muslim terrorists seen in the light of Kashmir.'" [more]
"Rejecting Islamabad's persistant demand for a plebiscite in Kashmir in accordance with the UN resolution, the US on Friday said it favoured the settlement of the problem bilaterally between India and Pakistan in accordance with the Shimla accord and hoped the coming Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir would lead to the resolution of the issue."

"Reports from Pakistan say the Musharraf regime began asking the US military to return two of the four bases Jacobabad and Pasni lent to it for the Afghan operation because of the tensions with India. Whether or not this was a pressure tactic to get the US to lean on India to relax its pressure is unclear, but it transpires that US generals have agreed to move their assets out of Pakistan." [more]

This website is a tribute to Why War?, one of the nation's first and most innovative post-9/11 student antiwar organizations. Born on October 22, 2001 at Swarthmore College, we were a handful of freshmen and sophmores who vocally opposed the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. And now, seven years later, we are retiring this website as we focus our efforts on new directions. We hope that it continues to serve future activists and we remain confident that humanity is on the verge birthing a better world.
