"We don't mean to say, and no one can say to you, that there are no dangers. But we do not have to be hysterical. We can be vigilant, we can be American. We can stand up and hold up our heads and say, 'America is the greatest force that god has ever allowed to exist on his footstool'."
"The government is taking unprecedented measures to protect our people and defend our homeland. And we must act before the dangers are upon us."
-George W. Bush
"The course of this nation does not depend on the decisions of others."
-George W. Bush
"The US has claimed for itself through this 'War On Terrorism'...to identify its interests as lying anywhere on this planet and it has claimed the right unilaterally to fight back to protect its interests."
"Would you like to make your plea? Gentlemen of the court there are times when I'm ashamed to be a member of the human race and this is one such a case. It's impossible for me to summarize the case of the defense because the court never allowed me a reasonable oppurtunity to present my case. Are you protesting the authenticity of this court? Yes, sir. I protest against being prevented from introducing evidence that I consider vital to the defense. The prosecution presented no witnesses. There has never been a written indictment of charges made against the defendants. I can't believe that the noblest impulse of man, its compassion for another, can be completely dead here."
-Colonel Dax from Paths Of Glory
"This is a fight which seeks to destroy all the gains of anti-colonial movements, of national independence movements, national liberation movements, all of the gains, limited as they were, that they have made since the 50s and 60s, this 'War on Terrorism' is now the counter attack to wipe out all of those gains."
