9/11, a day that has joined 12/7/1941 as a day that will live in infamy. Arab terrorists who have no respect for American values struck at the heart of our nation, and also hit at the soul of America. We were deeply wounded, and out of the mess, our President, who had received less votes nationally than his opponent, claimed the mantle of leadership in this war on terror. Four years after 9/11 we are forced to ask why George W. Bush and his administration choose to indirectly help the very terrorists who struck the World Trade Center rather than to eliminate them? Why has Bush chosen to appease the greatest threats to American security, Iran and North Korea while using military action to strengthen Iran’s hand in the Middle East? We also must ponder why Bush turned his back on his conservative campaign themes and resorted to ultra liberal goals of nation building and over deployment of the military?
Over the past four years the Republican Party under the leadership of George W. Bush has gone from a party tough on terrorism to one that coddles the greatest threats to American security. What exactly is the Bush policy towards the Middle East and Islamic terrorism, can Bush be trusted to protect our friends like Israel and the United Kingdom, and punish our enemies (and nations that should be considered enemies if only for economic reasons) like Iran, Russia, Syria, China and India? This week we will explore for the answers.
