Some in this chamber, and in our country, did not support the liberation of Iraq. Objections to war often come from principled motives. But let us be candid about the consequences of leaving Saddam Hussein in power. We are seeking all the facts -- already the Kay Report identified dozens of weapons of mass destruction-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations. Had we failed to act, the dictator's weapons of mass destruction programs would continue to this day. Had we failed to act, Security Council resolutions on Iraq would have been revealed as empty threats, weakening the United Nations and encouraging defiance by dictators around the world. Iraq's torture chambers would still be filled with victims -- terrified and innocent. The killing fields of Iraq -- where hundreds of thousands of men, and women, and children vanished into the sands -- would still be known only to the killers. For all who love freedom and peace, the world without Saddam Hussein's regime is a better and safer place.
Common sense tells you that
America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country.
Eat that Nancy Pelosi.
I am listening to the democratic response and its pathetic. She used the word alienating our allies. Thats the biggest load of crap I have ever heard. We dont alienate our allies. We alienate our enemies. That is why we didnt include France or Germany in that long list of allies. They are not our friends.
You might be a democrat if:
you support our troops but:
Both Nancy Pelosi and Tom Daschle said those exact words.....
bah and dont get me started with Ted Kennedy
I'm done with my rant
