Warning that Islamic terrorists want to create "a radical Islamic empire," President Bush today said that the war on terror would require more sacrifice on the part of the U.S. He made his remarks during what the White House called a "major speech" on the battle against terrorism.
The speech was an effort to remind Americans that the war against terror is continuing. Before the non-partisan National Endowment for Democracy, President Bush called the adversaries in the fight "enemies of humanity."
President Bush pointed to continuing terrorist attacks around the globe-- from Bali, Indonesia to Sharm el Sheik, Egypt-- as proof of Al Qaeda's murderous intentions to take over the entire Middle East, driving out all western influence and establishing a fundamentalist Islamic rule.
President Bush went to lengths to demonstrate that the fighting in Iraq is not the cause of these attacks, but the response to them.
