On October 4, 2001, Los Angeles Times reported that "decrying last month's terrorist attacks on the East Coast, leaders of the nation's largest Afghan expatriate community... urged decisive strikes against the perpetrators and the Taliban government in their homeland. But at the same time, they expressed hope that President Bush would avoid a full-scale war that would threaten the lives of innocent Afghans."
