The two articles that we have read both deal with the war in Iraq. The two articles have completely different perspectives. Bush’s address to the nation covers the current standing of the U.S and the Iraqis in the “global struggle against terrorism. As Bush speaks he brings up the 2005 elections and how well they went, but last year radical Islamic extremist have taken an uprising in violence and the Iraq population. Bush talks about the obvious consequences of the mistakes that were made: The Islamic extremists are growing in numbers and are gaining better position to topple the government, and Iran would be “emboldened” in its pursuit of nuclear weapons, and give a place of safe haven for terrorist. The safe haven would also provide ground for an attack on the American people. Bush’s response to this up rise in violence and instability in the Iraqi government is to send more troops to help clean and clear Iraq streets of insurgents.
