Six years ago, we woke up to evil
Six years ago, we watched the towers fall
Six years ago, some of us woke up.
Thank God for George W Bush, who has led us in our fight against evil for the last six years.
Six years of relative safety for us here in the US
Six years of death and destruction for the enemies of freedom.
Six years that has seen the creation of two new democracies in the Middle East.
Six years that has underlined for us who is for freedom, and who is not.
Today terrorists from around the world flock to die at the hands of our military and the new governments in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thousands upon thousands of evil, misguided people have perished there.
And yet there are those, some of them the same ones who urged our withdrawl from VietNam, (which withdrawl was followed by a horrifying genocide and the toppling of that entire region of the world into darkness) - who urge our withdrawl from Iraq.
Who want to see terror and death sweep over that nation again.
Who don't mind that Afghanistan would naturally fall next.
Who can't see that the next target for Terror after Afghanistan and Iraq lies in the West.
Who fail to listen as Iran, again and again, and again swears to wipe out Israel, and humble the West.
Who fail to listen as the Muslim Brotherhood and it's sibling organizations swear that soon Islam will control the world.
Who fail to see, hear or listen as terror attack after terror attack is launched by Islam
against peaceful peoples - in Spain, in Britain, in Germany, in Israel, in India, in Malasia, in Pakistan, in Jordan, in Turkey, in France, in Sweden, and in almost every country around the globe.
But no significant attack has been a success here yet, not in six years.
Six years of prosperity.
Six years of some of the lowest unemployment rates in the world.
Six years of strong, healthy stock markets.
Six years of Americans going about their business, raising children, building homes, finding jobs.
I thank George W Bush.
And you should take a moment today, and thank him too.
