For the sake of history here are the two most important statements in President Bush's speech in the aftermath of 9/11 attacks:
- This is not, however, just America's fight. And what is at stake is not just America's freedom. This is the world's fight. This is civilization's fight. This is the fight of all who believe in progress and pluralism, tolerance and freedom.
- Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom, the great achievement of our time and the great hope of every time, now depends on us.
