How will the country react to Bush's plan to escalate the Iraq War?
We had an election where people said enough. Instead, we are about to escalate the war in Iraq, and at the same time Bush is going to reject the Baker Report's recommendations that the war change from one of combat to one of training the Iraqi troops. How do you think the country is going to react to this?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
