The assault on the World Trade Center was horrific, despicable, and unpardonable, but it is important not to lose perspective, especially a historical one. For a response that is dictated primarily by fury such as that now displayed by some American politicians, while understandable, is likely to simply serve as one more proof for Santayana's dictum that those who do not remember history are bound to repeat it.

War!!! Yes, the world is at war... at least, since I can remember, since I was a child and heard my father, coming hurriedly back home from work, announcing to our family: - "Paris has fallen!" Where did it fall? Who had pushed it? Why? What wrongs had Paris done, so hideous as to deserve it's falling? I could not understand, I was a child - war belonged to grown-ups, not to kids.

Our aging Russian-built helicopter flew into the Panjshir valley from the north, high over desolate, brown hills. At Changaram, a narrow point in the valley where lush, green fields and terraces cling to the sides of the mountains, we landed.

A year since the outbreak of the intifada, living standards among Palestinians have fallen dramatically. Israel's stranglehold over the Palestinian economy is virtually complete and takes the form of over 150 military blockades erected in the West Bank and more than 40 in Gaza. To these must now be added the new buffer zone, established this week along the border between Israel the Palestinian areas. All entry and exit points to the West Bank and Gaza - even mountainous paths and dirt roads - have been closed.

Since the September 11 attacks on the United States, most people in the world agree that the perpetrators need to be brought to justice, without killing many thousands of civilians in the process. But unfortunately, the U.S. military has always accepted massive civilian deaths as part of the cost of war. The military is now poised to kill thousands of foreign civilians, in order to prove that killing U.S. civilians is wrong.

On Monday Sept 17th we had an opportunity to catch up with Congresswoman Barbara Lee and talk to her about her decision to cast the only vote opposing President Bush's War resolution. Not even her fellow colleagues from the Congressional Black Caucus voted with her on this one. That includes such notable people like Maxine Waters, Charles Rengel, Jesse Jackson Jr., Cynthia McKinney to name a few. What is this all about?

If Osama bin Laden did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him. For the past four years, his name has been invoked whenever a US president has sought to increase the defence budget or wriggle out of arms control treaties. He has been used to justify even President Bush's missile defence programme, though neither he nor his associates are known to possess anything approaching ballistic missile technology. Now he has become the personification of evil required to launch a crusade for good; the face behind the faceless terror.

"Soğuk Savaş" yıllarının belki de yegâne katkısı, havacılık teknolojisine. Menzili ve yük kapasitesi giderek artan, sesten birkaç kat hızlı savaş uçaklarının geliştirilmesi, ABD ile SSCB'nin girdiği silahlanma yarışında aktarılan milyarlarca dolarlık kaynağın sonucu.
