QUOTE

“The more we throw our weight around,
the more we encourage other nations to join with each other as a
counterweight. We have a lot of problems besides Iraq and Afghanistan
on the horizon. The number one problem remains the spread of weapons
of mass destruction and those falling into the hands of either rogue
nations or borderless terrorists. And so we have to have a united
front of the world that cares about life more than death; that
consists of builders instead of destroyers, standing together,
fighting together, working together.”
