Quotational Therapy: Part 61 -- President Bush In Mongolia.

Bush, On Overcoming Communism & Islamic Radicalism-

Most of you don't know this, but when I was in high school, I would send out bloggish emails to some of my fellow high school students with-- among other things-- random Mongolian trivia that I'd find in books or on the internet. Nerdy? Oh, yeah. But everyone seemed to love those emails. Especially the Mongol trivia.

So this quotational therapy is particularly fun. Our President, George W. Bush, visited Asia last week, and one stop on his journey was Mongolia. When critics say the President has turned the world against the United States, they are really only referring to the once-relevant "Old Europe." Germany. France. Countries with their own domestic dysfunctions. But in the newly free world, George Bush is treated like a hero. Mongolia is one of those countries. The U.S. is forging unprecedented ties with nations around the world, gaining immense respect, gratitude, and loyalty.

President Bush spoke in Mongolia on November 21, 2005:

Like the ideology of communism, the ideology of Islamic radicalism is led by a self-appointed vanguard that presumes to speak for the masses. Like the ideology of communism, Islamic radicalism teaches the innocent can be murdered to serve their brutal aims. Like the ideology of communism, Islamic radicalism is dismissive of free peoples, claiming that men and women who live in liberty are weak and decadent. And like the ideology of communism, the ideology of Islamic radicalism is destined to fall because the will to power is no match for the universal desire to live in liberty.

Free people did not falter in the Cold War, and free people will not falter in the war on terror. We see the determination to live in freedom in the courage of Iraqi and Afghan citizens who defied the terrorists to cast their ballots. We see it in the bravery of ordinary Lebanese who waved cedar flags and drove an occupying power from their borders. And we've seen it in the daily courage of the Mongolian people who claimed their freedom 15 years ago, and are now standing with others across the world to help them do the same.

Read the entire speech here.
