Christopher Capiau October 16 2001 Essay 3 Final Draft Essay 3 We all know the events of September 11th 2001 We all know the pain of loss and the anger that was in us all As many people the President parents teachers peers have told us it is how we react that matters Do we as a nation try to coax the Taliban into giving up Osama bin Laden and other key members of his terrorist group al-Qaeda Do we bring in our planes tanks and ground troops to take over Afghanistan and throw out the Taliban regime Because the reaction we give is not just the reaction of President Bush it is not just the reaction of our Congress it is the reaction of our nation every man woman and child Negotiations with the Taliban on the exiling or giving up of Osama bin Laden were unsuccessful The Taliban refused to extradite bin Laden and has steadfastly justified his methods of Jihad President Bush has put together a coalition of nations to help the US fight its war on terrorism which extends far beyond NATO Even some of Afghanistans neighbors Uzbekistan and China and friends Pakistan have promised aid to the US There is a disagreement however about how this war should be waged Through non-military means such as economic sanctions or negotiations or through military means such as air strikes or all-out war The divide over using military might or using more peaceful means is sharp but not even The majority of Americans would approve of a manned war in Afghanistan In a Time magazine article examining the rift in leftist thinkers on the issue of military response it is shown that not all Democrats feel the same as those protesting any military action Howard Zinn a historian emeritus at Boston University Todd Gitlin a sociology professor at NYU and Christopher Hitchens a freelance journalist are all Democrats yet all
