ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the American War in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The war in Afghanistan is deemed to be getting much worse for both the western coalition and for the Afghan civilian population. On September 22, the United Nations (UN) Security Council unanimously passed Resolution 1833 (2008) extending the authorization of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan for one year. However, the event was barely mentioned in the Australian press, and no peace organisation has expressed opposition to the legal extension of the war.
