Today's NY Times has a good article entitled The Coalition: U.S. Demands Arab Countries 'Choose Sides'. Rep. Barbara J. Lee, Democrat of California, was the lone opposition vote in the House to give President Bush the power to use "all necessary and appropriate force" to respond to the terror attacks on the United States this week. She said the nation risked entering an open-ended war without a clear target. She said in a statement, "I am convinced that military action will not prevent further acts of international terrorism against the United States." I agree with the Egyptian ambassador who stated that the administration must focus on finding and punishing those responsible for this week's attacks, and not broaden the effort to include other geopolitical goals.
