September 11 and Aftermath

I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (1941)

Cry "Havoc," and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
William Shakespeare (Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene i, ll. 273-5)

Who let the dogs out?
A. Douglas (Baha Men)

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
William Butler Yeats

The Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq

We are the enemy of the Taliban, the enemy of the Jihadis. We are the enemy of all fundamentalists and fanatics. We are no one's agents.
Shahalla (RAWA)

We did not know what they knew; we are only now learning. We did not know what they did not want us to know, when they raised us in the leafy suburbs.

... A world at war, once again at war. The enemy is much different, but it begins the same way, people hopefully wondering if it might be all over by Christmas. People just beginning to come to terms with the enormity of what has happened, with the inevitability of what is to come.

David Warren (Ottawa Citizen, 11 Nov 2001)
