While this might all be ok with everyone right now, in the wake of the attacks, a little down the road Americans will be angry, as citizens privacy from the government has always been a classic argument. As one could see there are going to be unpleasant side effects from the unpleasant acts of terrorism, yet how effective they are will not be so easily measured. However, one could safely say that the usual hurdles which are put up by citizens themselves (privacy issues, waiting in line, etc.

Then, to keep tragedies from happening again, the government must institute new precautions to protect Americans. Precautions must be instituted in malls, stadiums, skyscrapers, airports, airplanes, nuclear power plants, and in the nations food supply.

Rules and regulations have been increased that range from what can and cannot be taken in luggage on or the plane, and passengers must participate in increased security measures such as being strip searched or X-rayed. Although quality security at the airports is in the passengers’ best interest, many ask if current research into passenger screening is taking things a little too far. Do our new security procedures cross the line because of citizen rights violations? The answer is no. It is obvious that with our technological advances the attack should have been stopped before it ever started, and stricter airport security is a step toward a safer nation for all Americans.

"I believe it will happen, the chances of someone bringing an explosive on an aircraft by walking through a metal detector or in hand-carried luggage are very real." (Mica) "Since U.S. airlines are seen as national symbols, the threat of attack remains high. For this reason we must deploy available technologies to reduce the risk we face. We know we cannot make the world risk free, but we must protect our citizens, their values and the country's economic strength to the best of our ability.

Do you really want to live in a society where your every move is analyzed and your actions monitored? America is heading down that path of Big Brother, is it worth it?
THE REAL NATIONAL TREASURE The United States, along with the allied forces of the world, is currently fighting to find Osama bin Laden as well as his organization, al Qaeda, in Afghanistan. The new declaration of the “War on Terrorism” has withdrawn all boundaries that the terrorist organizations have been hiding behind. Although this war is a new idea to the average American Citizen, it is an old foe of the governments in most countries, which have already established antiterrorism and counter-terrorism task forces, but are now working together under an allied force. With the tightened security at the airports and military facilities, the counter-terrorism efforts are fighting back to counter the terrorists actions, but the key to fighting terrorism is to prevent the attacks from happening at all. More than a majority of the American public supports this military action against countries that terrorize the United States.
The united states will not tolerate terrorists in parts of the world where we can't get too and drones can offer a low risk way of targeting these areas while viewing collateral damage.
