Yes. Since September 11, the world has changed. The threat of terror is ever present and for the sake of peace, we cannot sweep this potential terror under the carpet and pretend that there is peace or make peace and let the time bomb tick. Peace doesn’t mean we have to sit down and let the danger come to your doorstep before you act. I agree with President Bush that America has to tackle this grave problem before thousands of innocent lives are lost in America and around the world. Sadly enough, sometimes peace can only be achieved by aggression. Peace doesn’t mean the absence of war. I believe the world’s axis of evil should be dealt with and I praise the American people for giving their lives for the sake of peace. On my part, I also pray for peace.
