(How the media remembers it, anyway)
As we all know, different media outlets have different political views. So they will obviously be biased toward those views. After 9/11 the news was torn between how we should handle the situation. Should we go to all- out war? Should we just rebuild and hope nothing else happens? There were rumors of a draft, nuclear weapons scares, etc. But, The whole Middle-East situation is too long and complex to explain in this article.
