bush speech 2 – democracy and reform

“Democracy and reform will make those nations stronger and more stable, and make the world more secure by undermining terrorism at its source.”

“America is pursuing our forward strategy for freedom in the broader Middle East in many ways. Voices in that region are increasingly demanding reform and democratic change, so we're working with courageous leaders, like President Karzai of Afghanistan who is ushering in a new era of freedom for the Afghan people.

“We're taking the side of reformers who are standing for human rights and political freedom, often at great personal risk.

“We're encouraging economic opportunity and the rule of law and government reform and the expansion of liberty throughout the region.”

“ Along with the United Nations, we will help Iraq's new government to prepare for national elections by January 2005. This free election is what the terrorists in the country fear most. Free elections are exactly what they're going to see.”
