Bin Laden is one example of an evil person taking advantage of a poor country, that being Afghanistan, just like the drug cartels have manipulated people in Columbia in the name of the American dollar.
The residents of these countries are average persons who have no interest but to survive. We simply have not acknowledged our responsibility in providing security, like the United Nations' coalition in Kosovo, and we simply have closed our eyes to Third World countries like Afghanistan and the Palestinians, which have families, children and memories. The people also have dreams of being part of the American dream.
I am behind President Bush's decision in what he sees fit as retaliation measures. As I make this statement, I know that my life won't be on the front line as much as I would like to be with my fellow Americans, but I strongly believe that we can defeat the envy and evil with our dollars and our strong economy. That would save American families in the long run, either civilian or military.
