ABSTRACT

Avenging 9/11: Defeating a New Kind of Enemy   [open pdf - 11KB]

"The 9/11 attacks on the New York and Washington were neither criminal acts nor cowardly ones; they were brilliantly-conceived, meticulously-planned and courageously-executed acts of war against the United States. The attacks and the subsequent and continuing US reaction have demonstrated the hard reality that the United States is engaged in a new kind of guerrilla war whose main proponent is the stateless ex-Saudi terrorist Usama Ben Laden [UBL]. The success that UBL has achieved is simply put: One individual, primarily self-supported, has managed to engage a superpower with various large scale acts of violence now including the death of thousands of Americans and billions of dollars, and that after a decade of cat-and-mouse and almost another year of active US military and covert operations, that man is apparently still alive and his cause is growing!"
