Chapter 1: 9/11 or September 11
Silence, shock, unbeliever was the best way to describe what went to the head of President George Walker Bush on September 11 2001 as he heard the news of the horrible attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. President George Bush at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School to meet students and staff and to bring attention to his plans for education reform, when he heard the horrible news. Not wishing to disturb the kids he sat there for a moment and then continued to read for them out of the children's book before cutting his visit short and head out to get a full grasp of the situation of his nation being under attack and how to respond to this. It soon became clear that it wasn't a foreign nation attacking the United States of America, but rather a terrorist attack by radical Islamist and while America's heroes, firefighters, policemen and everyday civilians tried to rescue as much survivors out of the rubble and ruins of destroyed and burning buildings as possible, American and foreign intelligence organizations shared data and information's to find out who exactly was behind all of this and where they were hiding. It was soon found out that al-Quaida and Osama bin Laden were the culprits of this devastating attack and it became clear to all that if America wished to keep it's position as the global superpower, it needed to react and could not simply let itself be bullied and threatened by some foreign state or terrorist group alike. The Taliban led Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan however were the main Leadership of al-Quaida and Osama bin Laden was hiding and where the had their terrorist training bases outright refused to cooperate with the American authorities, openly calling the United State a satanic, infidel nation that got what they as dogs and pigs deserved. Knowing that there were anti-Taliban guerrillas operating in Afghanistan and that the whole Northeast of the Country was under control of the so called Northern Alliance of Jamiat-e Islam under Rabbani, Junbish-e Milli under Dostum, Hezb-e Wahdat under Mohseni and others, the United States increased their military presence in nearby allied countries to pressure the Taliban and start negotiations with their enemies.
At the same time the United States called unified response against global terrorism and a damnation and embargo against all countries who were supporting acts of terror. The main goal was to politically isolate such nations, regimes and groups and deprive them form all financial and resource aid from foreign powers as good as possible. The United Nation were used to condemn this terror aiding operations and in the wake of the global shock and horror about the September 11 attacks, the United States managed to get the United Nations and most member nations not only to condemn terrorism, but to call for a United States resolution regarding the Taliban Regime in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and how to deal with them. In the End a new wave of embargo's was decided as well as a plan to aid the enemies of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in diplomatic and financial means to ensure they would hold out and not the whole state would fall under direct Taliban influence as that would have only increased their power base and legitimacy in the future. The gears of global diplomacy were rolling while the United States of America and other major allies of them like Great Britain, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, Norwey, Italy, Georgia, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Sweden, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Ukraine, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and the United Arab Emirates prepared for a United Nation mandate and UN led military intervention in Afghanistan to aid the Northern Alliance against the Taliban and their Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. It was clear that the Afghanistan Conflict, Afghanistan Civil War that had raged from 1978 till the present needed to End and that after the defeat of the Taliban, the United Nations would need to use peacekeeping forces to ensure rebuilding and stability in the region, as well as a overall security that would ensure the new Afghan Nation would thrive and prosper in peace and stability afterwards finally. To do so the United States promised to lend their military power alongside that of their allies to ensure a quick and fast defeat of the Taliban Regime while having their and all other forces remain under observation and control of the United Nations joint mission in Afghanistan.
