Cowering in Caves
Some accused US President George W. Bush of behaving like a "cowboy" in the wake of Osama bin Laden's sneak attack on the homeland. The resolve that Bush demonstrated with his muscular response clearly put the terrorists on the run, and American embassies and consulates were not shutting down in fear of al-Qaeda. Now, the United States presents the image of defeat by closing down more than twenty diplomatic posts across the Middle East. In five short years, look how the mighty have fallen.
