About this Quote

This quote belonged to a speech provided by George W. Bush at the National Museum of Female in the Arts in Washington D.C. on March 8, 2002. In the speech, Shrub outlined his vision for the future of Iraq and also the Center East, in which he saw America as a pal and also ally to the people of Iraq.

The quote mirrors Bush's belief that the United States was not fighting versus the people of Iraq, however rather versus Saddam Hussein's routine, which he depicted as a danger to both Iraqis as well as Americans. The needs Bush referred to were his administration's ask for Saddam to surrender his tools of mass damage as well as enable international examiners to validate that disarmament had taken place.

Shrub preserved that the removal of Saddam's regimen would cause the best advantages for individuals of Iraq, who he thought had endured under his dictatorial guideline. He shared his hope that with the elimination of Saddam's routine, Iraqis would be able to take pleasure in the very same freedoms and possibilities as individuals in other autonomous nations.

The quote has been slammed by some as insincere, as the subsequent intrusion of Iraq and the years of conflict that followed resulted in significant loss of life and damage to framework, and did not necessarily produce the guaranteed advantages for individuals of Iraq.
