ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the military campaign of the U.S. against Afghanistan. The war against Afghanistan marks the U.S. response to the September 11 terrorist attacks. It also provides a preliminary assessment of the nation's capacity to prevent terrorism. Initial reports regarding the war offer little cause for comfort. It appears that the world's best-trained military force lack the tools to deal effectively with its enemies. The military plans have not been successfully implemented in Afghanistan.
