Osama bin Laden is dead. Now can the U.S. get out of Afghanistan and Pakistan?

Or will the U.S. use this death as an excuse to stay in corrupt wars even longer?

The U.S. government has been terroristically and criminally at war against Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and has military presence in the Middle East and North Africa. Will the death of bin Laden result in the U.S. withdrawing troops? Or will the U.S. remain the most terroristic, militarised, racist nation-state on Earth?

Dear President Obama,

Please withdraw all troops from Afghanistan and everywhere else, cut the military budget, increase taxes on the rich, make corporations earning billions annually pay taxes, and stop looting the poor and middle class. And please stop looting and polluting the Global South too. And stop the genocide against Indigenous people. And rape. And please work to end all forms of exploitation of girls and women.
