Стр. 50 - To you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of further assistance in this or any other matter.
Стр. 17 - The United States has adopted a new policy, a forward strategy of freedom in the Middle East. This strategy requires the same persistence and energy and idealism we have shown before. And it will yield the same results. As in Europe, as in Asia, as in every region of the world, the advance of freedom leads to peace.
Стр. 27 - The conduct of the Iraqi regime is a threat to the authority of the United Nations, and a threat to peace. Iraq has answered a decade of UN demands with a decade of defiance. All the world now faces a test, and the United Nations a difficult and defining moment. 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. 20 - So let me turn briefly to the State Department operations portion of the President's Budget Request which, as you will recall, totals $8.4 billion. KEEPING AMERICANS SAFE AT HOME AND ABROAD The State Department has the responsibility to protect more than 60,000 US Government employees who work in embassies and consulates abroad.

Стр. 16 - Colombia has developed a democratic security strategy as a blueprint for waging a unified, aggressive counterterror-countemarcotics campaign against designated foreign terrorist organizations and other illegal, armed groups. The US and its Southeast Asian allies and friends have made significant advances against the regional terrorist organization Jemaah Islamiyah which was responsible for the Bali attack in 2002 that killed more than 200 people. In early August 2003, an Indonesian court convicted...
Стр. 27 - And our greatest fear is that terrorists will find a shortcut to their mad ambitions when an outlaw regime supplies them with the technologies to kill on a massive scale. In one place — in one regime — we find all these dangers, in their most lethal and aggressive forms, exactly the kind of aggressive threat the United Nations was born to confront.
Стр. 16 - All governments that support terror are complicit in a war against civilization. No government should ignore the threat of terror, because to look the other way gives terrorists the chance to regroup and recruit and prepare. And all nations that fight terror, as if the lives of their own people depend on it, will earn the favorable judgment of history.
