Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make.
Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. I'm a uniter, not a divider. Freedom, by its nature, cannot be imposed.
It must be chosen. We have a place, all of us, in a long story. A story we continue, but whose end we will not see.
This young century will be liberty's century. By promoting liberty abroad, we will build a safer world. By encouraging liberty at home, we will build a more hopeful America. We believe that freedom, the freedom we prize, is not for us alone. It is the right and the capacity of all mankind. This is, above all, the age of liberty.

America's soul is rejuvenated when people come to our country and work hard to realize dreams We ought to have a process that enables people to come.
Now that conflict has come, the only way to limit its duration is to apply decisive force, and I assure you, this will not be a campaign of half measures, and we will accept no outcome but victory. I believe that the best government that will yield to peace, is one decided by people.
If we permit our economy to drift and decline, the vulnerable will suffer most. We go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world. Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.
For most of our history, America felt safe behind two great oceans. But with the spread of technology, distance no longer means security. This story goes on.
