It must be noted that America's war of aggression

Bloodthirsty American imperialism began
to deploy massive Marines and other ground
troops near the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar
on November 25th, launching a ground battle
for massacring the Taliban and the al-Qaeda
A few days ago US / UK forces 'won the fall'
of the Taliban's last northern position in
Kunduz through indiscriminate air raids and
mass killings, putting forward the Northern
Alliance troops. Now, they have started the
violent attacks on Kandahar, the last stronghold
of the Taliban led by Mullah Muhammad Omar,
by committing US Marines notorious for atrocities
in Vietnam. At last, they have launched an
annihilating battle on the Taliban forces
and Osama bin Laden's group.
US forces were again using fuel-air explosive
bombs comparable to tactical nuclear bombs
on November 21st near Kandahar, killing many
fighters and people as if they were worms.
American jets have been raining horrible
bombs, including cluster bombs and bunker
busters, on people around Kandahar.
Moreover, US forces massacred reportedly
800 Taliban fighters including Arabs at a
Northern Alliance prison near Mazar-e Sharif
by unleashing heavily armed AC-130 gunships
and MH-60 Black Hawk helicopters under the
pretext that the captives committed a 'revolt'
They say, 'Celebrate the liberation of Kabul!',
'Celebrate the return of freedom and peace
to Afghanistan!' But isn't it the Anglo-American
troops themselves called 'mission of freedom'
that are now mad on most coward and most
barbarous massacres against people in Afghanistan,
just like cowboys mad on killing Indians.
Never permit their escalation in the
war against the Afghan people!
Smash the scheme of an 'interim administration'
The land of the world's poorest nation is
now burnt down and pious Muslims are being
killed by Anglo-American imperialists and
by their conspirators (Russia, states in
EU, Japan and China). Those criminal rulers
in the contemporary 'crusade' are also beginning
dirty conflicts to take the lions' share
of their preys stained with Afghans' blood.
The UN-sponsored conference for 'an interim
administration of Afghanistan' is, in its
nature, like a bargaining between these hyenas.
Afghan delegates started to gather in Germany
on November 27th for making a national administration;
however, it's just a reproduction of the
irreconcilable rivalries among various tribes
and warlords in Afghanistan.
Hates and resentments are heating among
those tribes and warlords because they were
waging bloody civil wars in the past. Losing
the clasp of the Taliban, the long-standing
rivalries have been unleashed now. Moreover,
the rivalries are aggravating because of
intensifying oppositions among their backers
including the US, Russia, Pakistan, India,
and Iran in relation to post -Taliban visions.
The intensified rivalries, particularly the
Northern Alliance's 'dash', have confused
the US initial plan for conquering the nation.
It is for this reason that George W. Bush
has made a decision to commit massive ground
troops, aiming to frame a pro-US government
against Russia and Iran, and, if things go
well, to occupy strategic points in Afghanistan
like in Saudi Arabia.
Stop another aggression against Iraq and
George W. Bush is now desperate to capture
and 'execute' Osama bin Laden, setting 25
million dollars on his head. The Anglo-American
media, and the Japanese one as its follower,
are now playing the role of a governmental
speaker, saying 'Laden is contained', etc.
They are drawing the world into a witch-hunt.
While producing such a fever, warmongers
are trying to hang not only bin Laden but
also whomever they regard as harbouring or
They are targeting Iraq, and Somalia, condemning
them as 'supporting terrorists'. They are
even sending special squads to the Philippines
to 'eradicate' guerrillas from Muslim radicals
there, regarding them as 'having connections
with the al-Qaeda'.
Comrades over the world!
George W. Bush is now building a horrible
system to continuously wage the so-called
'asymmetric war', in which he aims missiles
at 'terrorists' who can revolt against him
and at Muslim people whom he regards as 'harbouring'
them, under the banner of eradicating 'international
terrorism as unseen enemies'.
Down with the Koizumi government rushing
to join the war!
Workers in Japan!
The Koizumi government for Japanese imperialism
willingly decided its war participation in
order not to miss the opportunity of the
US 'war on terrorism'. The government has
positioned Japan as a member of the contemporary
'Crusade', or provokers of a global warfare,
emerging as a conspirator in the massacre
of the Afghan people. It must be said that
Japanese imperialism has 'shown the flag'
as 'an enemy to the Muslim people over the
The dispatch of its SDF troops to the Indian
Ocean in the name of 'rear supports to US

air raids on people with the Taliban. The
Koizumi government has now appeared as 'an
enemy to the Muslim people'. Now is the time
to overthrow his government with the full
might of the working people in Japan!
Overcoming the degeneration of official left
parties, advance revolutionary antiwar struggles!
Workers in Japan!
We should never let the bloodthirsty imperialists
continue the atrocious killings!
