Mr. Brad Blackman who was a senior official in the white house during the Bush govt. has professed that the US and its coalition partners could not have invaded Afghanistan without the support of some Arab states. Is this not a matter of shame for the governments of these ''brotherly Islamic states'' to have helped the intruders in killings hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians who have been murdered ruthlessly as yet as a result of this attack. And let us not forget that we also provided the US with the necessary support to destroy Afghanistan. Perhaps it is a matter of shame for us as Ummah. MOIN AHMAD, Bahawalpur, June 5.
