Part Seven

The bombing, invasion and occupation of Afghanistan were conducted -- apart from the primitive lashing out in blind revenge against ... somebody -- primarily for the purpose of insuring the installation of a new government that will be sufficiently amenable to Washington's international objectives, including the siting of the bases and electronic communications intercept stations and the running of oil and gas pipelines through the country from the Caspian Sea region.

The welfare of the people of Afghanistan, by contrast, can have counted for little, considering that the elements put into power by US military might are largely those whose earlier rule before the Taliban was so depraved that many Afghans welcomed the Taliban to power; their newest atrocities, carried out under cover of American firepower, show they haven't lost their touch.

The prime minister of the interim government, Hamid Karzai, though himself not seeming too villainous, may have a credibility problem, given his long close contact with the US State Department, National Security Council, Congress, and other pillars of the American foreign policy establishment.{15}  Yet, the connection may work only one way, for when leaders of the interim government asked the United States to halt its bombing in December because of the frequent mass deaths of innocents, Washington refused, saying it had its own timeline.  This does not bode well for the future Afghan government and society; neither does Karzai's appointment of General Rashid Dostum as deputy defense minister, a man amongst whose charms is the habit of punishing his soldiers by tying them to tank tracks and then driving the tanks around his barracks' square to turn them into mincemeat.{16}

Is this any way to end terrorism?

The American scorched-earth bombing of Afghanistan may well turn out to be a political train wreck.  Can it be doubted that thousands throughout the Muslim world were emotionally and spiritually recruited to the cause of the next Osama bin Laden by the awful ruination and perceived injustice?  That is to say, the next  generation of terrorists.  Indeed, in December, while the American  bombs were still falling on Afghanistan, a man -- British citizen  Richard Reid, who was a convert to Islam -- tried to blow up an  American Airlines plane en route to the United States with  explosives hidden in his shoes.  At the London mosque that Reid had attended, the cleric in charge warned that extremists were enlisting other young men like Reid and that agents aligned with radical Muslim figures had stepped up recruiting efforts since September 11.  The cleric said that he knew of "hundreds of Richard Reids" recruited in Britain.  Reid, described in the press as a "drifter", reportedly traveled to Israel, Egypt, the Netherlands, and Belgium before arriving in Paris and boarding the American Airlines plane.{17}  This raises the question of who was financing him.  The freezing of numerous bank accounts of alleged terrorist groups throughout the world by the United States may have rather limited effect.

Americans do not feel any more secure in their places of work, in their places of leisure, or in their travels than they did a day before their government's bombings began.

Has the power elite learned anything?  Here's James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA, speaking in December in Washington, advocating an invasion of Iraq and unconcerned about the response of the Arab world: The silence of the Arab public in the wake of America's victories in Afghanistan, he said, proves that "only fear will re-establish respect for the U.S."{18}

What, then, can the United States do to end terrorism directed against it?  The answer lies in removing the anti- American motivations of the terrorists.  To achieve this, American foreign policy will have to undergo a metamorphosis.

If I were the president, I could stop terrorist attacks against the United States in a few days.  Permanently.  I would first apologize to all the widows and orphans, the tortured and impoverished, and all the many millions of other victims of American imperialism.

Then I would announce, in all sincerity, to every corner of the world, that America's global interventions have come to an end, and inform Israel that it is no longer the 51st state of the USA but now -- oddly enough -- a foreign country.  I would then reduce the military budget by at least 90% and use the savings to pay reparations to the victims.  There would be more than enough money.

One year's military budget of 330 billion dollars is equal to more than $18,000 an hour for every hour since Jesus Christ was born.



That's what I'd do on my first three days in the White House.



On the fourth day, I'd be assassinated.
