I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace.
America is a Nation with a mission - and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace - a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.
For all who love freedom and peace, the world without Saddam Hussein's regime is a better and safer place.
We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace.
We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and Freedom will prevail.
We will stand up for our friends in the world. And one of the most important friends is the State of Israel. My administration will be steadfast in support Israel against terrorism and violence, and in seeking the peace for which all Israelis pray.
We've climbed the mighty mountain. I see the valley below, and it's a valley of peace.
