Стр. 64 - We must take the battle to the enemy, disrupt his plans, and confront the worst threats before they emerge.
Стр. 54 - Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger, we have found our mission and our moment . Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom, the great achievement of our time and the great hope of every time , now depends on us.
Стр. 88 - Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or cast aside without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its founding, or will it be irrelevant?
Стр. 52 - Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.
Стр. 54 - We will not tire; we will not falter; and we will not fail.
Стр. 62 - America must stand firmly for the nonnegotiable demands of human dignity: the rule of law,- limits on the absolute power of the state,- free speech; freedom of worship; equal justice; respect for women; religious and ethnic tolerance; and respect for private property.
Стр. 129 - America's next priority to prevent mass terror is to protect against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them.
Стр. 52 - Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we see right here in this chamber — a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms — our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
Стр. 53 - Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen.
Стр. 50 - Tonight we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom. Our grief has turned to anger, and anger to resolution. Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.
