Question Five: Why are We So Divided?
The fifth question in our debate series on the war in Iraq and the War on Terror is:
While 9/11 brought us together, why has what come after so divided us? Is anyone to blame for this or was it inevitable?
I think it’s too easy to blame the divisiveness just on Bush’s perceived arrogance or the left’s perceived knee-jerk opposition. We’ve gone over those thoughts in the opinions on the first four questions. I would be interested to hear if people feel it goes deeper than that or if there are other pieces to the problem.
Question One: Why did we invade Iraq?
Question Two: Has the Iraq war set any precedents?
Question Three: Are we safer?
Question Four: Why do some think America is the enemy?
