Allies' Support Steady, but Concern Is Growing



And although the United States rejects any link between the terrorist attack and so-called "causes of terror," many U.S. allies do not.

"We need to think about ways to break the chain of hatred," said Kagoshima University professor Akira Kimura in Japan. "The terrorism was not the beginning; it was a result. We should think why the U.S. was attacked. Why is the U.S. so hated that terrorists attack by committing suicide?"

Apart from Britain, U.S. allies and analysts say they have no intelligence of their own to determine where the more than 2,000 missiles and bombs fired since Oct. 7 have fallen or to gauge whether they have hit the 80 targets that Washington and London say they have.
