"We found that problems originating in a failed and oppressive state 7,000 miles away could bring murder and destruction..." (Here Bush was speaking for all Iraqis)
"Dictatorships shelter terrorists, and feed resentment and radicalism." (Here, Bush was speaking of America. It was good to hear him admit this of his administration.)
"Far from being a hopeless dream, the advance of freedom is the great story of our time. In 1945, there were about two dozen lonely democracies in the world. Today, there are 122. Well, it used to be 123, but we overthrew Haiti's democratically elected president, Aristide, and replaced him with our puppet. We also overthrew Venuezuela's president which would have made 121, but he outwitted us and returned."(Bush smiles.)
"At the start of 2006, more than half the people of our world live in democratic nations. And we do not forget the other half -- in places like Syria and Burma, Zimbabwe, North Korea, and Iran -- because the demands of justice, and the peace of this world, require their freedom, as well." (Ah, an update on the U.S.'s latest hit list? NOTE to all people in Syria, Burma, Zimbabwe, North Korean and Iran. Were I a citizen of one of these nations, I might want to start digging a bomb shelter and stocking it with food. Demolition, death and democracy may be headed for your country!)
"No one can deny the success of freedom, but some men rage and fight against it. And one of the main sources of reaction and opposition is radical Christians-- the perversion by a few of a noble faith into an ideology of terror and death. Terrorists like me are serious about mass murder -- and all of us must take my declared intentions seriously. I seek to impose a heartless system of totalitarian control throughout the United States, and arm ourselves with weapons of mass murder."
"My aim is to seize power in the U.S., and use it as a safe haven to launch attacks against the rest of the world. Lacking the military strength to dominate globally, I have chosen the weapon of fear to at least dominate America...allowing we, the violent, to inherit the Earth."
