Reality of terror
(Stockholm, Sweden) Dagens Nyheter
From the beginning it has been said that the United States must use a broad arsenal in which diplomatic, police, political and military efforts work together.
However, one problem from an American viewpoint is that the humility and willingness to cooperate that existed immediately after the terror attacks in New York and Washington was conspicuous by its absence during the diplomatic prelude to the Iraq war. Then the tone was significantly more self-confident than it is today. It does not do any good, however, to dwell on all that has happened.
The outside world -- including the United States -- must act according to the reality which exists. And the reality is that an Iraq where terror is allowed to win becomes a bigger threat against international peace and security than Saddam Hussein's oppressive regime was.
