Week Fifty-Five of the War on Terrorism: America’s on-ending war against terrorism is in its 55th week. We are starting our second year with Bush at war. In the first year of Bush’s war Americans experienced considerable loss of personal freedom, witnessed major encroachments on civil rights, saw the President turn his back on the Koyto Treaty, observed major corporate scandals starting with Enron, watched the Republicans take control of the House and Senate, as Bush bullied the United Nations into supporting the call for regime change in Iraq. During the first year of Bush’s war, American foreign policy became more aggressive, with Bush claiming the right to attack any nation that might be a threat to America. America seems to be in a permanent war against the world.
