The paradox of power is that a weaker nation will seek help from a stronger nation to resolve a problem, then hate the stronger nation because the weaker nation could not solve the problem themselves.
Though it was not realized at the time, America's war on terrorism began in 1983 when Marine Corps barracks in Lebanon were bombed, killing 266 and wounding 169. Other acts of terrorism occurred over the next two decades. Most notable of these were the atrocity in Somalia, the tragedy at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, and the attack on the USS Cole. However, America was unprepared for the acts of terrorism on September 11, 2001, when hijacked airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing thousands. Amidst their shock and sorrow, Americans also found strength and unity. The Bush administration quickly began a massive investigation into the attack, and the President vowed not only to hunt down the culprits, but also to eradicate all forms of terrorism. "The battle will take time and resolve," Bush declared, "but make no mistake about it: we will win." The battle continues.
