Transcript we go raq? "Delay, indecision, and inaction are not options for America, because they could lead to massive and sudden horror." - President G. W. Bush This year, America faced a new kind of war — one which involved terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and biological weapons. Although these terms had been used before, never had they been so realistic. "I don't think that it is okay to let Hussein have nuclear weapons in his power. People are quick to criticise war, but they can't think of anything else to do," said sophomore university studies Dom Zatarain. Many students agreed that war was the only way to end this conflict. "I agree with Bush because he wants to put a stop to a homocidal madman before it gets out of hand. I wouldn't have a problem going over there and fighting myself," said senior biology major Chris Leinbach. While some were ready to help out with the war efforts, others were more wary of the situation. "I'm really religious, and it scares me to know that we might have another world war, like it says Sharing Expierences. Israeli students Dafna Harel, Chanan Fogel, and Roy Sheham talk to a group of students on Oct. 2 in the Honors College lounge. The speakers were part of a group of 48 students touring the US. Their mission was to prove that their life in the Middle East is relatively normal. -Pin Lim in the Bible. I don't feel that anything we say or do will change the politicians' minds," said junior chemistry major, Amy Fin ley. This type of despair led to feelings of distrust of the government media. "I try not to worry about things that are going on. I feel like the information on the news is propaganda, and it is used to make us scared and confused," said junior photography major Kara Duval. Conspiracy theories made many people believe that in fact our president had his own interests in mind. "We shouldn't go to war. Bush is using his own agenda to try to get the Senate to back him. Iraq is a sovereign nation, and we are the aggressors if we attack them. It's none of our business," said junior English literature major Anne Bayerkohler. "I feel like Bush is just trying to exert his authority. He is focusing on his animosities toward Hussein. He needs to get his interests in order," said freshman computer science major Sheena Oommen. All opinions of the war were protested during this year. However, above all, students were quick to support their country. -Bridget Brown. wmmurniFwimmm^ Stand Up For Your Right. Freshman psychology major Paul Shwartz expresses his concern for the war on terrorism by wearing a homemade sign on his shirt. As the situation with Iraq escalated, students proclaiming the need for peace in the Middle East were a common sight around campus. -Katherine Mayse SHOULD VE GO TO VARP I don't think we need to have a war. It's just all destruction and killing of people. -Sree, senior, electrical engineering I think we should go to war. They should be punished. -Brandi Earl, freshman, education I think Bush is jumping the gun. We need to give the UN more time for talks. -David Wilkinson, sophomore, business It is only about the interests of private large companies, money and oil. War makes the economy go through the roof and the president will take credit. -Don Drake, senior, English literature Kola Olaleye, senior, electrical engineering "Bush is using this so- called 'War on Terrorism' just to make himself look good. Now he's trying to go to war with Iraq so he can get re-elected." ?hilli? Goldsmith senior, bio-chemistry "I'm against the war. It's not a good idea. We have an ongoing war with terrorism, and if fight with Iraq it will re-direct our position." Jennifer Hilley freshman, theater "Whatever the Bush administration needs to do about Iraq, they should do it. They should first think about the consequences, and then decide what to do." Uzaro Vazquez SOfHOMORE, EDUCATION 'Going to war is not a I good idea. The United States does not have enough evidence against Iraq. It will create more problems rather than solving them." RicrYoung graduate student "I don't believe in war. The United States shouldn't go to war with Iraq." mvMmhiM\a&m&i
