The American cowboy is reaping the fruits of his crimes against
humanity. It is a black day in the history of America, which is tasting
the bitter defeat of its crimes and disregard for peoples' will to lead
a free, decent life.
The massive explosions in the centers of power in America, notably
the Pentagon, is a painful slap in the face of US politicians to stop
their illegitimate hegemony and attempts to impose custodianship on
peoples. It was no coincidence that the World Trade Center was
destroyed in suicidal operations involving two planes that have broken
through all US security barriers to carry the operation of the century
and to express rejection of the reckless US policy.
Panic has spread among US official circles, which evacuated the
White House following a series of explosions. They also evacuated the
Pentagon, the State Department, and Congress and closed down
the airports and government institutions. The collapse of US centers
of power is a collapse of the US policy, which deviates from human
values and stands by world Zionism at all international forums to
continue to slaughter the Palestinian Arab people and implement US plans
to dominate the world under the cover of what is called the new [world]
order. These are the fruits of the new US order.
