In speech, Bush lays out vision for victory

Yesterday President Bush delivered a speech in which he described his vision for victory in Iraq. It was as compelling a speech as this President has given (also, follow the link for some good commentary from the Corner). Hitting back at Democrats and war critics who claim Iraq is nothing more than a “diversion” in the GWOT Bush said:

It’s hard to believe that these terrorists would make long journeys across dangerous borders, endure heavy fighting, or blow themselves up in the streets of Baghdad, for a so-called “diversion.” Some Americans didn’t support my decision to remove Saddam Hussein; many are frustrated with the level of violence. But we should all agree that the battle for Iraq is now central to the ideological struggle of the 21st century. We will not allow the terrorists to dictate the future of this century — so we will defeat them in Iraq. (Applause.)
