As we all know by now, President Bush gave a national press conference yesterday (March 6, 2003). It included such gems as:

We are determined to confront threats wherever they arise. I will not leave the American people at the mercy of the Iraqi dictator and his weapons.
[ W]hen it comes to our security, we really don't need anybody's permission.
The complete, official transcript is available at the White House site. If President Bush matches acts to words, commentators of the future will surely refer to the statements made in this conference as the epitome of resolve, reminiscent of Pierre Trudeau's stance when the FLQ terrorists tried "their thing" in Canada (1970). If the words are not followed by congruent acts, this press conference will be recorded as the mother of all braggadocio shows. Either way, the text should be bookmarked for future reference.

Another reason to bookmark the statements made by President Bush is to quote them anytime the US administration resumes its pressure on Israel, in her war of self-defence.
