"It is not the way to go...not in our son's name."

By John Pilger, Former Mirror chief foreign correspondent

The war against terrorism is a fraud. After three weeks' bombing, not a single
terrorist implicated in the attacks on America has been caught or killed in

Instead, one of the poorest, most stricken nations has been terrorised by the most
powerful - to the point where American pilots have run out of dubious "military"
targets and are now destroying mud houses, a hospital, Red Cross warehouses,
lorries carrying refugees.

Unlike the relentless pictures from New York, we are seeing almost nothing of this.
Tony Blair has yet to tell us what the violent death of children - seven in one family
- has to do with Osama bin Laden.

And why are cluster bombs being used? The British public should know about these
bombs, which the RAF also uses. They spray hundreds of bomblets that have only
one purpose; to kill and maim people. Those that do not explode lie on the ground
like landmines, waiting for people to step on them.

If ever a weapon was designed specifically for acts of terrorism, this is it. I have
seen the victims of American cluster weapons in other countries, such as the
Laotian toddler who picked one up and had her right leg and face blown off. Be
assured this is now happening in Afghanistan, in your name.

None of those directly involved in the September 11 atrocity was Afghani. Most
were Saudis, who apparently did their planning and training in Germany and the
United States.

The camps which the Taliban allowed bin Laden to use were emptied weeks ago.
Moreover, the Taliban itself is a creation of the Americans and the British. In the
1980s, the tribal army that produced them was funded by the CIA and trained by
the SAS to fight the Russians.

The hypocrisy does not stop there. When the Taliban took Kabul in 1996,
Washington said nothing. Why? Because Taliban leaders were soon on their way to
Houston, Texas, to be entertained by executives of the oil company, Unocal.

With secret US government approval, the company offered them a generous cut of
the profits of the oil and gas pumped through a pipeline that the Americans
wanted to build from Soviet central Asia through Afghanistan.

A US diplomat said: "The Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis did." He
explained that Afghanistan would become an American oil colony, there would be
huge profits for the West, no democracy and the legal persecution of women. "We
can live with that," he said.

Although the deal fell through, it remains an urgent priority of the administration of
George W. Bush, which is steeped in the oil industry. Bush's concealed agenda is
to exploit the oil and gas reserves in the Caspian basin, the greatest source of
untapped fossil fuel on earth and enough, according to one estimate, to meet
America's voracious energy needs for a generation. Only if the pipeline runs
through Afghanistan can the Americans hope to control it.

So, not surprisingly, US Secretary of State Condelleza Rice is now referring to
"moderate" Taliban, who will join an American-sponsored "loose federation" to run
Afghanistan. The "war on terrorism" is a cover for this: a means of achieving
American strategic aims that lie behind the flag-waving facade of great power.

The Royal Marines, who will do the real dirty work, will be little more than
mercenaries for Washington's imperial ambitions, not to mention the extraordinary
pretensions of Blair himself. Having made Britain a target for terrorism with his
bellicose "shoulder to shoulder" with Bush nonsense, he is now prepared to send
troops to a battlefield where the goals are so uncertain that even the Chief of the
Defence Staff says the conflict "could last 50 years".

The irresponsibility of this is breathtaking; the pressure on Pakistan alone could
ignite an unprecedented crisis across the Indian sub-continent. Having reported
many wars, I am always struck by the absurdity of effete politicians eager to wave
farewell to young soldiers, but who themselves would not say boo to a Taliban

In the days of gunboats, our imperial leaders covered their violence in the
"morality" of their actions. Blair is no different. Like them, his selective moralising
omits the most basic truth. Nothing justified the killing of innocent people in
America on September 11, and nothing justifies the killing of innocent people
anywhere else.

By killing innocents in Afghanistan, Blair and Bush stoop to the level of the
criminal outrage in New York. Once you cluster bomb, "mistakes" and "blunders"
are a pretence. Murder is murder, regardless of whether you crash a plane into a
building or order and collude with it from the Oval Office and Downing Street.

GRIEF: A father weeps over his dead son after the bombs blunder in Kabul

If Blair was really opposed to all forms of terrorism, he would get Britain out of the
arms trade. On the day of the twin towers attack, an "arms fair", selling weapons of
terror (like cluster bombs and missiles) to assorted tyrants and human rights abusers,
opened in London's Docklands with the full backing of the Blair government.

Britain's biggest arms customer is the medieval Saudi regime, which beheads
heretics and spawned the religious fanaticism of the Taliban.

If he really wanted to demonstrate "the moral fibre of Britain", Blair would do
everything in his power to lift the threat of violence in those parts of the world
where there is great and justifiable grievance and anger.

He would do more than make gestures; he would demand that Israel ends its illegal
occupation of Palestine and withdraw to its borders prior to the 1967 war, as
ordered by the Security Council, of which Britain is a permanent member.

He would call for an end to the genocidal blockade which the UN - in reality,
America and Britain - has imposed on the suffering people of Iraq for more than a
decade, causing the deaths of half a million children under the age of five.

That's more deaths of infants every month than the number killed in the World
Trade Center.

There are signs that Washington is about to extend its current "war" to Iraq; yet
unknown to most of us, almost every day RAF and American aircraft already bomb
Iraq. There are no headlines. There is nothing on the TV news. This terror is the
longest-running Anglo-American bombing campaign since World War Two.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the US and Britain faced a "dilemma" in
Iraq, because "few targets remain". "We're down to the last outhouse," said a US
official. That was two years ago, and they're still bombing. The cost to the British
taxpayer? 800 million so far.

According to an internal UN report, covering a five-month period, 41 per cent of the
casualties are civilians. In northern Iraq, I met a woman whose husband and four
children were among the deaths listed in the report. He was a shepherd, who was
tending his sheep with his elderly father and his children when two planes attacked
them, each making a sweep. It was an open valley; there were no military targets

"I want to see the pilot who did this," said the widow at the graveside of her entire
family. For them, there was no service in St Paul's Cathedral with the Queen in
attendance; no rock concert with Paul McCartney.

The tragedy of the Iraqis, and the Palestinians, and the Afghanis is a truth that is
the very opposite of their caricatures in much of the Western media.

Far from being the terrorists of the world, the overwhelming majority of the Islamic
peoples of the Middle East and south Asia have been its victims - victims largely of
the West's exploitation of precious natural resources in or near their countries.

There is no war on terrorism. If there was, the Royal Marines and the SAS would be
storming the beaches of Florida, where more CIA-funded terrorists, ex-Latin
American dictators and torturers, are given refuge than anywhere on earth.

There is, however, a continuing war of the powerful against the powerless, with new
excuses, new hidden agendas, new lies. Before another child dies violently, or
quietly from starvation, before new fanatics are created in both the east and the
west, it is time for the people of Britain to make their voices heard and to stop this
fraudulent war - and to demand the kind of bold, imaginative non-violent initiatives
that require real political courage.

The other day, the parents of Greg Rodriguez, a young man who died in the World
Trade Center, said this: "We read enough of the news to sense that our government
is heading in the direction of violent revenge, with the prospect of sons, daughters,
parents, friends in distant lands dying, suffering, and nursing further grievances
against us.

"It is not the way to go...not in our son's name."
