The terror attacked on the World Trade Centre in New York and The Pentagon in Washington changed the world political scenario. The Anti Terrorism and even the pre-emptive war implement to the Afghanistan. The Iraq also been another target of the anti terror campaign.

The 3rd Anniversary of 9/11 remind us how effective of the Bush-Administration's war on terror. For the past three years, we stay in a world that not safer but more terror. The Anti-terror war only legitimize the US occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Last week, in Beslan, Russia, more than 335 people, half of them children, died in the bloody siege and a further 200 are unaccounted for. The anger of the people towards the Chechen rebels and even the ways of the Russian government reacted.

Two days ago, the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia was attacked by the suicide car bomb. At least nine people have been killed and 160 injured. The way just like the Bali Bombing attacked on October 2002.

The root cause of the terrors today have to be adressed properly, we needs to win the people heart and thinks. Through Anti-terror and Pre-emptive War make this world worse.
