Cruelty and Conquest

VII.

The United States has no
quarrel with the Iraqi people;
they’ve suffered too
long in silent
captivity. Liberty for
the Iraqi people is
a great moral cause, and a great strategic
goal. The people
of Iraq deserve
it; the security of
all nations requires it. Free societies do not
intimidate through cruelty
and conquest, and
open societies do not
threaten the world with mass murder. The United
States supports political
and economic liberty
in a unified Iraq.
(George Bush to the United Nations, September 2002)
