Don't you EVER bother listening to speaches or reading the transcripts when linked to them? That is a rhetorical question of course as your words have already answered with a resounding NO.
To let you in on a little secret about the battle plan that all you "ultra liberal progressives" so conveniently ignore or forget (and apparently think normal people do too), here is a direct link to the President's speech on 20 September 2001 and just a tiny bit from it to refresh your memory.
Americans have many questions tonight. Americans are asking, "Who attacked our country?"
The evidence we have gathered all points to a collection of loosely affiliated terrorist organizations known as al Qaeda. They are some of the murderers indicted for bombing American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya and responsible for bombing the USS Cole.
Al Qaeda is to terror what the Mafia is to crime. But its goal is not making money, its goal is remaking the world and imposing its radical beliefs on people everywhere.
The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics; a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam.
The terrorists' directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans and make no distinctions among military and civilians, including women and children.
This group and its leader, a person named Osama bin Laden, are linked to many other organizations in different countries, including the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.
There are thousands of these terrorists in more than 60 countries.
Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there.
It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.
Americans are asking, "How will we fight and win this war?"
We will direct every resource at our command ? every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war ? to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network.
Now, this war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.
Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes visible on TV and covert operations secret even in success.
We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place until there is no refuge or no rest.
And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.
Yes "progressives" and Deaniacs, and Moore's, and Sheehans, you are either with us or against us and Bin Laden's latest tape shows how he and other Al-Qaeda leadership have picked up on the support for his cause provided by the above mentioned in the media.
Y'all may not be intentionally supporting terrorism, but your negativity provides support FOR continued terrorism EXACTLY as another generation provided support for Communist North Vietnam against the US and received credit for their active participation for his cause by General Giap.
Shame on you, ALL OF YOU!
