"The true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. When we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. We Americans are not destroyers; we are builders. We are now in the midst of a war, not for conquest, not for vengeance, but for a world in which this Nation, and all that this Nation represents, will be safe for our children. We expect to eliminate the danger from Al Qaeda and all terrorist groups in Iraq, but it would serve us ill if we accomplished that and found that the rest of the world was dominated Iran and Islamic fanatics.
We are going to win the war, and we are going to win the peace that follows. And in the dark hours of this day-and through dark days that may be yet to come-we will know that the vast majority of the members of the human race are on our side. Many of them are fighting with us. All of them are praying for us. For, in representing our cause, we represent theirs as well-our hope and their hope for liberty under God."
If you are done trying to guess, replace the words "Al Qaeda and the terrorists in Iraq" with "Japan"; and "Iran and the Islamic fanatics" with "Hitler and Mussolini" and go to Town Commons for the answer.
