(p.18) Chapter One Statues Also Die
War after Death

Steven Miller

Fordham University Press

This chapter considers the meaning of war from the perspective of the 9/11 attacks. It looks at the relationship between war and the word, and asks why the word war is so important in ethics, politics, and war itself. It suggests that the traumatic impact of 9/11 was also due to the fact that they caused lasting damage to the institution of war itself. It examines the Taliban’s massacre, in March 2001, of the twin Buddhas of Bamiyan and suggests that we have more to learn from this event than from the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Keywords:   war, 9/11, ethics, politics, violence, death, Buddha, Bamiyan, Taliban
