Bush speaks to the nation about Freedom for Iraq

Tonight President Bush addressed the nation regarding the importance to continue the effort in Iraq.

You can read the entire speech here.

The themes touched on in this speech are ones the President has mentioned in speech after speech after speech. And given the very successful elections in Iraq, it should be obvious that the effort in Iraq is working and should continue. Still for the sake of those who do not see the benefit, the President must continue speaking about this. And like in a prior speech, this time the President mentioned some intelligence was faulty. Still this war is bigger than some Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) and that is the message that President Bush attempted to convey tonight.

As he mentioned:

Since the removal of Saddam, this war – like other wars in our history – has been difficult. The mission of American troops in urban raids and desert patrols – fighting Saddam loyalists and foreign terrorists – has brought danger and suffering and loss. This loss has caused sorrow for our whole Nation – and it has led some to ask if we are creating more problems than we are solving.

That is an important question, and the answer depends on your view of the war on terror. If you think the terrorists would become peaceful if only America would stop provoking them, then it might make sense to leave them alone.

This is not the threat I see. I see a global terrorist movement that exploits Islam in the service of radical political aims – a vision in which books are burned, and women are oppressed, and all dissent is crushed. Terrorist operatives conduct their campaign of murder with a set of declared and specific goals – to de-moralize free nations, to drive us out of the Middle East, to spread an empire of fear across that region, and to wage a perpetual war against America and our friends. These terrorists view the world as a giant battlefield – and they seek to attack us wherever they can. This has attracted al Qaida to Iraq, where they are attempting to frighten and intimidate America into a policy of retreat.

As we have seen in places like France, even trying to stay out of wars like the one in Iraq, does not prevent Islamic Radicals from keeping up their activity anywhere in the world. Even before 9/11 Islamic Radicals hated America and some Islamic Radicals were able to count on Saddam’s support. Given he paid killing bombers that murdered people in Israel. It was past time for some effort to begin in order to remove Radical Islam and it’s supporters, before they fulfill their desire to remove us!

Well said President Bush and keep up the fight!
