JDI 2010 2 MRP Afghanistan Aff Structural Violence 1AC - Advantage US presence in Afghanistan leads to civilian causalities and mass suffering for the people of Afghanistan – realist interpretations of the international arena leave no room for an ethical condemnation of these deaths Ayotte Ass’t Prof of Comm at CSU- Fresno, & Husain Lecturer in Comm at CSU-Fresno, 2005 Kevin & Mary, NWSA Journal 17.3 (2005) page muse The failure of military intervention to bring about security for Afghan women will likely come as little surprise to feminist international relations scholars. The lack of public debate regarding civilian casualties following the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan offers a telling example of the material consequences that follow from the realist emphasis on state security in contrast to feminist notions of individual security from physical, structural, and epistemic violence. Some 1,300 Afghan civilians may have been killed directly by U.S. bombs and missiles. Even more significantly, estimates of "indirect victims" of U.S. military action who died as a consequence of the rigors of forced migration from their homes, the interruption of drought relief, and the upsurge in fighting between the Taliban and the Northern Alliance range from 3,000 to 7,000 (Conetta 2002). Of course, various media outlets and the U.S. government dispute these numbers. The U.S. government does not even track civilian casualties resulting from U.S. military action, ostensibly for reasons ranging from practicality to concerns about public opposition to "collateral damage." In fact, the disinterest regarding civilian casualties reflects the philosophical framework of realpolitik under which U.S. foreign policy is conducted. Within political realism, civilian casualties do not need to be counted because they do not figure as variables in a geopolitical equation that privileges the security of the nation-state over individual security from violence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
