(independent), Lusaka, Sept. 21, 2001.
Under the effect of the shock caused to the world
by the appalling and brutal terrorist action that targeted the American
people on Sept. 11, underlined by painful reports and images of
grief and sorrow, certain minds driven by feelings of hatred and
arrogance have taken to the sinister task of reviving old methods
and doctrines that lie at the very source of terrorism and the extremely
grave tensions affecting the world today.
Any honest person would have the right to ask if it is really justice
that they want or rather to use the hurting and outrageous tragedy
to impose methods, prerogatives, and privileges leading to the establishment
of an unrestricted tyranny over every people on Earth by the most
powerful state in the world.
Some senior officials have openly claimed that all restrictions
on the right of American institutions and officials to murder any
person should be lifted, even if that requires the use of the most
despicable criminals. Such a prerogative was used in the past by
U.S. leaders to eliminate patriots like Patrice Lumumba in 1961
and to arrange coups détat and carnage.
The world has not given its unanimous support or expressed its most
sincere condolences to the noble American people to let such sentiments
be used to elaborate doctrines that would spread chaos and bloody
events throughout the planet.
