The World Reacts. (Opinion Pulse)


Bowman, Karlyn, The American Enterprise


Gallup International interviewers found that many people around the world knew of the terrorist attacks in the United States within three hours of their occurrence. With the exception of Israel and India, all nations surveyed preferred to extradite the terrorists to stand trial rather than launch an attack on the country or countries where the terrorists are based. When told that NATO and other countries had agreed to participate in military action against the terrorists and the countries harboring them, many of our traditional allies said they would support their country's military involvement.

Question: In your opinion, once the identity of the terrorists is known, should the American government launch a military attack on the country or countries where the terrorists are based or should the American government seek to extradite the terrorists to stand trial?

Question: Some countries and all NATO member states have agreed to participate in any military action against the terrorists responsible for the attacks or against those countries harboring the terrorists. Do you agree or disagree that your country should take part ...?
