Let Bolton Battle :: essays research papers fc

Let Bolton Battle   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  What if you had just got off work early and decided to fly home to surprise your family, but just as you take off the screaming starts. Your plane was just hijacked by an extremist terrorist group that hates the United States and is going to take the plane down in a city for maximum casualties. Do you think something should be done to prevent this? It is horrible that after 9/11 no one could agree â€Å"on something as basic to the war on terror as a comprehensive definition of terrorism† while other innocent people died. The author, Newt Gingrich, recognizes these dangers and presents a strong argument for the election of John Bolton, Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, to become ambassador to the United Nations.

During his four-year term, the Washington Times called him â€Å"the indispensable leader† and Time magazine named him â€Å"Man of the Year† for 1995. Not only was he influential on the floor, he has written nine books including two best sellers, Contract With America and To Renew America. Furthermore, he has become a sought-after public speaker, and just finished a keynote address at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at Harvard University. Through Gingrich’s website he responds to questions and concerns about pieces that he has written and states that he will even have an open debate about his articles. This is an ethos appeal for the reader since they know that Gingrich is well respected and knowledgeable.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  First, Gingrich opens with the powerful statement that contains demanding diction, such as â€Å"right choice† and â€Å"without further delay† to propel his argument for confirming Bolton to the United Nations. Then he states the reason that Bolton needs to be elected by stating that Americans are at uncertain times and face serious threats, and that the â€Å"U.
