President Bush tells Veterans he is Resolute on Iraq Policy

President at Convention

The President promised to stay the course with regards to Iraq Monday.  Speaking to the 106th Veterans of Foreign Wars’ National Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah he said his resolve is unchanged.  President Bush told the 15,000 gathered there concerning those that have died in the war “We will honor their sacrifice by finishing the task they gave their lives for.”

In a radio address he said "Our troops know that they're fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to protect their fellow Americans from a savage enemy.”  He believes the safety and security of ever American is at stake in this war.

In a written statement the President said we need to take “the fight to the terrorists in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and elsewhere.”  He characterizes the War in Iraq as the “central front in the War on Terror as terrorists there try to block the advance of freedom.”  The President indicated that as the Iraqis stand up, we will stand down.


President Bush believes the newly formed democracies in Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Iraq have encouraged democratic reformers in trouble regions of the world including Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The President mentioned progress in Israel where Sharon has begun removing Jewish Settlements in Gaza and parts of the northern West Bank.    

The President told the group of Veterans "I'm honored to serve as the Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces. The men and women who wear the uniform today are protecting our nation and our way of life. And they are upholding a tradition of honor and bravery and integrity set by America's veterans. All of you defended this country with unselfish courage. You've earned the respect of our citizens. And so, on behalf of a grateful nation, thank you for your service for the cause of freedom and peace."

According to the President he has increased spending for veterans by 24 billion dollars.  He compared his spending to that done by the previous administration.  According to Bush, spending has increased at twice the rate as it did during the previous administration for Veterans services.
