There is no time to consider carefully all the arguments and objections that might arise during peacetime. Former President Bush instantly and instantly reacted to the news of the attack by saying simply, “We are at war.” Thus Former President Bush is associating the 9/11 attacks with warfare. Former President Bush again is employing rhetorical techniques to define reality in a new way. In addition, he is also disassociating the “new” war from the old style wars.

The countries that considered remaining inactive in the 1936 Olympics did so with good reasoning. Although nobody had genuinely felt the full effect of Hitler’s racism, there was still enough evidence for these countries to see his overall intentions. Up to this point in time directly before the games began, Hitler had kept these issues within Germany and had not imposed his ideals on anyone but the inhabitants of Germany.
