The United States is at war with Iraq. This is a war that has limited public approval in this country and even less approval in the world at large. I believe we should pursue this action in order to rid the world of a very real and present danger in the form of Sadam Hussane. Those who subscribe to his philosophies have done and will do further damage to our way of life. On September 11th, 2001, a group of terrorists got aboard commercial U.S. airplanes and managed to crash the four planes they boarded. Two planes hit each of the World Trade Center towers, another hit the Pentagon, and the final one was driven into the ground in Pennsylvania. What happened on Sept. 11th was truly shocking. Consider that a group of men, unhappy about the way we live, would plan something this horrific, only to show how much they resent us. In our history, when the U.S. has battled other powers for a good cause, they have come out on top. But there has been one enemy that, no matter how many times the U.S. fights it, has not been completely eradicated: that enemy is terrorism, a brand of terrorism supported by Hussane and men like Usabo be Laden. The nation and the people encouraged and supported the United States" decision to lead the war on terrorism. Those who subscribe to his philosophies have done and will do further damage to our way of life. .
There are three reasons why the U.S. is a great candidate to spearhead the war on terrorism: not many countries are as able as the U.S. to provide aid; the U.S. has organized a national security program for our country and has already worked out a strategy to attack terrorism to seek retribution for the terrorists" actions; and the U.S. finds itself to be a prime target, so it is our responsibility to protect ourselves and, especially, our citizens. Though it may not be our role to save the world, our country can at least try to make it a better place. To begin with, the United States has provided aid to many foreign countries that have been ravaged by war and poverty.
