Abstract: Speaking as an American and a New Yorker, not everyone around here agrees on the U.S. government's military response to the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. With few exceptions, none of these disagreements are apparent from listening to U.S. Congressional debates or watching CNN - the key makers and disseminators of U.S. foreign policy, respectively. With only handfuls of people at scattered rallies, speak-outs, and demonstrations gathering on campuses and city squares in protest of the U.S. bombings in Afghanistan, one is left to wonder how widespread anti-war sentiment actually is in America.
