Afghan Network Special Reports


Afghan Network condemns the horrifying attacks on innocent civilians in the World Trade Center and the hijacked commercial planes and our condolences go out to all the families of the victims. We are shocked and angered by such brutality and share all the emotions of fellow American  citizens about these attacks. We pray that the perpetrators of this terrible crime be brought swiftly to justice. We commend the statements of Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of State Colin Powell and numerous senators, Congressmen who have cautioned against attempts to stigmatize the Afghan-Americans and American Muslim communities or blame them for this tragedy. We urge American citizens and the American, Canadian and European media to follow their example and not assign any form of collective guilt against communities for the crimes of individuals.

***********

We pray that the US attacks on Afghanistan will cause minimal loss of innocent Afghan civilian life.  We hope that the US attacks are strategic, quick and effective. We also hope that the US and the World community will continue and complete its carefully organized direct involvement in its initiative to bring a democratic and broad-based balanced multi-ethnic government in Afghanistan.  Afghans would like to see Afghanistan become a democratic and a world class country again and Afghans live in peace and prosperity

International Reaction to the October 7th American and British Strikes in Afghanistan.
International Newspaper Editorials & World Leaders Reaction.
Editorial Excerpt from The Daily Star (Jordan)
"One does not have to be a militant to be angered by the fact that when the 'Israel Defense Forces' go on the offensive in the West Bank or Gaza, they do so with American-built warplanes, helicopters, bombs and missiles. Does this mean that reasonable people support the wholesale slaughter of civilians? No. But it does challenge Washington to prove bin Laden wrong by demonstrating its earnest desire to address the issues listed above and honoring its pledge that it has no intention of making war on Islam."

Tomahawk Missile
Editorial Excerpt from The Guardian (United Kingdom)
"From the moment that the terrorists first struck nearly four weeks ago, it has been clear that a just response to that attack was likely to involve some form of military action by the United States. Now that moment has come and only a fool will not feel some fear. Tony Blair last night called it a moment of utmost gravity for the world. ... the most dangerous since the Cuban missile crisis of 1962."

USS Carl Vinson
Editorial Excerpt from Iran News
"The scale of the U.S. attack on the already devastated Afghan cities is clear now, but the duration and the scope of the military campaign is still unclear. ... It would be understandable if Washington's military attack is based only on the principle of eye for an eye. But if, as President Bush insists, the aim is to eradicate terrorism and bring peace to all corners of the world, then an eye for eye is not the right principle to follow."

USS Enterprise
Editorial Excerpt from The Times of India
"If New Delhi is increasingly suspicious of being left out of the loop in the US-led global war on terrorism, then British prime minister Tony Blairís goodwill hunting mission to the subcontinent will have done little to soothe the nerves. "

F18 Air Strikes
Editorial Excerpt from the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
"Mr. Bush and his principal ally, Britain's Tony Blair, deserve credit for pulling this uneasy, diverse coalition together. In his early months as President, Mr. Bush alarmed many friends of the United States by his tendency to take unilateral decisions and then expect them to agree. This time around, he and his aides have been at great pains to consult not just close allies, but also other influential governments, including some that have traditionally been deeply suspicious of US methods and motives. As a result, the Taliban and its dangerous guests are largely isolated."
