The Presidential Address

Unfortunately the President still won't tell it like it is. Probably because even five years later Americans still aren't ready for the truth.
Since the horror of 9/11, we've learned a great deal about the enemy. We have learned that they are evil and kill without mercy -- but not without purpose. We have learned that they form a global network of extremists who are driven by a perverted vision of Islam -- a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and despises all dissent. And we have learned that their goal is to build a radical Islamic empire where women are prisoners in their homes, men are beaten for missing prayer meetings, and terrorists have a safe haven to plan and launch attacks on America and other civilized nations. The war against this enemy is more than a military conflict. It is the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century, and the calling of our generation.

They are evil. They do kill without mercy. But they are not the extremists of Islam. Show me one country where the majority of the population is Muslim that is tolerant. Show me one country where the majority of the population is Muslim that does not despise all dissent. Show me one country where the majority of the population is Muslim that does not make women prisoners in their homes. This is not Muslim extremism, this is Islam. You might argue Turkey or Pakistan but they are fragile, easily tipped into the true ways of Islam. In both countries when you get away from the major cities they are the same as any other Muslim country.
Our nation is being tested in a way that we have not been since the start of the Cold War. We saw what a handful of our enemies can do with box-cutters and plane tickets. We hear their threats to launch even more terrible attacks on our people. And we know that if they were able to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction, they would use them against us. We face an enemy determined to bring death and suffering into our homes. America did not ask for this war, and every American wishes it were over. So do I. But the war is not over -- and it will not be over until either we or the extremists emerge victorious. If we do not defeat these enemies now, we will leave our children to face a Middle East overrun by terrorist states and radical dictators armed with nuclear weapons. We are in a war that will set the course for this new century -- and determine the destiny of millions across the world.

There is no doubt that they would use WMDs against us. They openly say they will. It will not be just the middle east overrun, Europe is fast becoming overrun today ! Burkas for medical personnel in England ? Come on ! This is Dhimmitude ! This is indeed a clash that will determine the destiny of millions across the world. Actually, the destiny of billions.

I'm often asked why we're in Iraq when Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks. The answer is that the regime of Saddam Hussein was a clear threat. My administration, the Congress, and the United Nations saw the threat -- and after 9/11, Saddam's regime posed a risk that the world could not afford to take. The world is safer because Saddam Hussein is no longer in power. And now the challenge is to help the Iraqi people build a democracy that fulfills the dreams of the nearly 12 million Iraqis who came out to vote in free elections last December.

The left openly state that the world and the Iraqis would be better off if we left Saddam in power. Wow. What a bunch of sickos. Saddam was a threat. He used WMDs in the past against Iran and his own people. He led us to believe he still had WMDs and refused to let UN inspectors prove he didn't have them. He funded terrorist organizations. Can the Iraqis build a successful Republic (not a democracy... there is a freaking difference) ? I don't see how. Their own religion tells them that such a thing is a sin. As for us pulling out ? We're still in Germany, Japan and Korea... WTF is so unacceptable about us staying in Iraq ?
We're training Iraqi troops so they can defend their nation. We're helping Iraq's unity government grow in strength and serve its people. We will not leave until this work is done. Whatever mistakes have been made in Iraq, the worst mistake would be to think that if we pulled out, the terrorists would leave us alone. They will not leave us alone. They will follow us. The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad. Osama bin Laden calls this fight "the Third World War" -- and he says that victory for the terrorists in Iraq will mean America's "defeat and disgrace forever." If we yield Iraq to men like bin Laden, our enemies will be emboldened; they will gain a new safe haven; they will use Iraq's resources to fuel their extremist movement. We will not allow this to happen. America will stay in the fight. Iraq will be a free nation, and a strong ally in the war on terror.

So the Liberals and the Democratic Party say that Iraq has nothing to do with fighting terrorism, but bin Lameass urges his terrorists to fight in Iraq. Huh.

I'm tired and have to go to work tomorrow. I'll finish this up tomorrow evening.
