"What may be of a significant concern to the new Iraqi government is rather related to the kind of involvement Tehran has been viewing and planning for itself in post-Saddam Iraq. We say this with full knowledge and admittance of the spiritual ties between the Shiites, the political ties between some major actors in the Iraqi political spectrum and those who in Iran have helped and assisted them when they were harassed and hunted down by Saddam."

"The Western response was telling. After years of ignoring the plight of the Somalis, they suddenly discovered that they needed to be ‘liberated’ from the forces of “Islamo-fascism”, and immediately launched political war on the new government. When all else failed, they encouraged Ethiopia to invade in support of “president” Abdullahi Yusuf, another warlord. They supported the Ethiopians from behind the scenes, and then came into the open once Mogadishi had been captured and success was assured. Today Mogadishu is in fear and chaos again."
Viewed from any angle, the U.S. war in Afghanistan could only be seen as a tragic exercise in futile destruction and display of naked arrogance. The eight year of bloodshed has not produced any desirable result either for the U.S. or for Afghanistan, and further continuation and intensification of the war would only bring further death and destruction....Sir Christopher Meyer, former British envoy to Washington says, "After nearly eight years in Afghanistan there is still no clarity about why we are there.” He properly describes war in Afghanistan as “a waste of blood and treasure.”
