“CLINTON: Good evening.
Earlier today, I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.
The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his region, the security of the world.
The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi government — a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people.”
Oval Office Address to the American People
December 16, 1998
And now, in 2007, we Republicans have delivered the solution Clinton said was the best way, and the democrats and media attack us for it and call it a failure.
Iraq today as a government respects the rights of it's people, and is ready to live in peace with it's neighbors. And it is a new government, without Saddam or his cronies.
We SUCCEEDED. Unfortunately, there are many who want to defeat Iraq, they have invaded the country and stirred up opposition to the government.
And the democrats think we should surrender to them and go home.
As I said to a "pull-out now" person yesterday. Lets assume (without evidence) that there is an actual civil war in Iraq, and not just a few thousand malcontents willing to kill innocent civilians but NOT to actually fight a war against the military of their country.
There are still two sides to that civil war. One side is a democratically-elected government, a friend and ally of our country, a government committed to peace in the region, to fighting terrorists, to giving it's people peace and prosperity.
The other side is a radical muslim opposition, who hate us, want to side with Iran our enemy, oppose democracy, want to suppress those in their country who disagree with them, will blow up innocent women and children to make their point, who are sponsored by terrorists, who blow up our troops, and are a threat to the region.
Which side SHOULD we be supporting? According to the Democrats, we have no business favoring one side over another in this battle. But it's hard to think of a "civil war" where the right side to support has been clearer.
