Den Amerikanern ist es wirklich ernst mit ihrem Krieg gegen den Terror: Hurricane Charley Declared Enemy Combatant. Einige Zitate:
"We will not tolerate this devastation on American soil", Rumsfeld said at a news conference yesterday. "Charley will pay", he vowed.
"This represents a logical extension of the war on terror," said Dr. Arthur Pepper, professor of political meteorology at the University of South Florida.
French President Jacques Chirac derided the administration's announcement as "another cheap political stunt." Chirac said that he would be happy to give Charley asylum in France "should he make his way across the sea."
