ABSTRACT
The article comments on the eloquence of United States President George W. Bush following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. His recent speech, against terrorism, to the United Nations General Assembly was as powerful as his speech to Congress. The events of early November in Northern Afghanistan is recalled in which, with the Northern Alliance, has swept into almost every major northern town, including Kabul, the capital. The Taliban, which fled many positions without a fight, imagines that it is making a strategic retreat, and it may well counterattack. The president and his planners say that Afghanistan is only Phase One of this war. Even Osama bin Laden, whose humiliation and death is one of the prime war aims of the U.S., is only a pustule on the diseased body of the Middle East.
