What the US papers say

How the American press reacted to Sunday's air strikes

Dan Milmo
Monday October 8, 2001


Whether the allies will take part in helping poor Afghanistan put together a better government is a question that will be faced in the next few days. Last night was only the start.


The real division, as President Bush said, is between civilised people and "the outlaws and killers of innocents", and it is in that choice that there is no neutral ground.


Democracy and freedom are not just afloat in a sea of equals; they are the ideals to which repressed and downtrodden people worldwide aspire, and when the best hope for ever achieving them is assaulted, nuanced solidarity becomes a rational form of self-defence.


Mr Bin Laden has warned that Americans may never again fee secure. Right now, we can only know that they feel steadfast, and united in their determination that, however long it takes, Mr Bin Laden and his associates will be hunted down and eventually defeated.


America didn't start this war - but it must win it to achieve peace. Said President Bush yesterday: "The battle is now joined on many fronts. We will not waver, we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and freedom will prevail." Just so.


Success surely requires eradicating any terrorist threat from Afghan soil. But it also demands doing so in way that separates Bin Laden from Islam. That is why Bush cautioned again Sunday that the war will be long and difficult - and why he's right to begin that war with the dual objectives set in Afghanistan on Sunday.
