Стр. 150 - States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.
Стр. 149 - We will work with the UN Security Council for the necessary resolutions. But the purposes of the United States should not be doubted. The Security Council resolutions will be enforced — the just demands of peace and security will be met — or action will be unavoidable. And a regime that has lost its legitimacy will also lose its power.
Стр. 156 - I will not wait on events, while dangers gather I will not stand by, as peril draws closer and closer.
Стр. 343 - ... next year and the year after that, and the year after that, will be impaired.
Стр. 165 - Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or 1 http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/09/200209 1 2- 1 .html. cast aside without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its founding, or will it be irrelevant?

Стр. 166 - Kampf indicating what he intended to do. But the hope was that maybe he would not do what he said. Between 35 and 60 million people died because of a series of fatal miscalculations. He might have been stopped early — at a minimal cost of lives— had the vast majority of the world's leaders not decided at the time that the risks of acting were greater than the risks of not acting. Today, we must decide whether the risks of acting are greater than the risks of not acting. Saddam Hussein has made...
Стр. 75 - There are a number of terrorist states pursuing weapons of mass destruction — Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, to name but a few. But no terrorist state poses a greater and more immediate threat to the security of our people, and the stability of the world, than the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
Стр. 152 - Some have argued that the nuclear threat from Iraq is not imminent— that Saddam is at least 5-7 years away from having nuclear weapons. I would not be so certain.
Стр. 150 - But Saddam Hussein has defied all these efforts and continues to develop weapons of mass destruction. The first time we may be completely certain he has nuclear weapons is when, God forbids, he uses one. We owe it to all our citizens to do everything in our power to prevent that day from coming.
