Signing of U.S. – Afghanistan Strategic Partnership Agreement
After President Obama's speech announcing the signing of a U.S. - Afghanistan Strategic Partnership Agreement on the evening of Tuesday, May 1, 2012, Win Without War issued a statement including the following quote from WAND Executive Director and Win Without War Co-Chair Susan Shaer:
"While we need a long term commitment to Afghanistan, that commitment should be to making peace and creating a civil society that represents all Afghan people, especially women whose voices are paramount in creating a lasting peace,” said Win Without War Co-Chair Susan Shaer. “We should end this war now. The people of Afghanistan are just as tired of war as Americans and we simply cannot afford the costs in both blood and treasure."
The full statement is available on the Win Without War website.
