Date Event Summary
12 March 2002 The U.S. Operation Anaconda In a situation like the one emerging in southern Afghanistan, America's present strategy is highly unlikely to succeed.
07 March 2002 US massacre in eastern Afghanistan No amount of lies or distortion from the American media can disguise the fact that US forces are carrying out a colonial-style massacre in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Hundreds of Taliban and Al Qaeda forces have been killed in five days of fighting, according to American military officials, who make clear that they intend to see the remainder exterminated.
18 February 2002 America and its New War Still outraged by the enormity of the September 11 attacks, an implacable and headstrong United States now sees a war against Iraq as the next step in its war against terrorism. A decision to topple Saddam Hussein appears to have been taken by President Bush in late January, around the time that he told Americans in his State of the Union speech that he would not "wait on events" in his battle with the "axis of evil" comprising Iran, Iraq and North Korea. Whether Tony Blair was consulted over this secret decision, or whether he cautioned against it if he was consulted, are points that are not yet clear. What is clear, however, is that a war against Iraq cannot be justified as part of the war against terrorism as it has been portrayed by Mr Blair and his ministers since September 11.
16 February 2002 Bellicose Bush The Bush administration moves into a phase of active military engagement, naming more countries in the 'axis of evil', and the international community is resentful of the U.S. plans.
14 February 2002 Human Rights Watch Seeks Access to Afghan Detainees Human Rights Watch asked Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for access to U.S. facilities in Afghanistan to investigate the conditions under which detainees are being held by U.S. armed forces
