For a few moments in front of the pentagon today, all the
controversy over defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and the Iraq war
gave way to pageantry and praise. It was the final, official
farewell for Rumsfeld, who assumed the job at the beginning of the
bush administration and more recently had become the public face of
an unpopular war. He was publicly let go by president bush the day
after the republicans lost congress. Rumsfeld leaves his post ten
days short of becoming the longest serving secretary of defense
ever, just shy of the record set by the equally controversial Robert
McNamara. Vice president Cheney, a longtime colleague and friend,
recalled serving under Rumsfeld in the Nixon administration.
이락 전쟁과 주둔을 계획하고 집행함에 있어서의 럼스필드의 역할에 갈채를 보내는 부시 대통령
Warner: President bush applauded Rumsfeld role in planning and
executing the Iraq war and occupation.
부시 대통령 연설>> Coalition forces drove Saddam Hussein from power in 21
days. And in the years that followed, Don Rumsfeld helped see the
Iraqi people through the resumption of sovereignty, two elections, a
referendum to approve the most progressive constitution in the
middle east and the seating of a newly elected government. On his
watch, the united states military helped the Iraqi people establish
a constitutional democracy in the heart of the middle east, a
watershed event in the story of freedom.
군대를 변화시킨 공적 치하
Warner: He had words of praise for Rumsfeld's campaign to transform
부시 대통령 연설>> He undertook the most sweeping transformation of
America's global defense posture since the start of the cold war,
repositioning our forces so they can surge quickly to deal with
unexpected threats and setting the stage for our global military
presence for the next 50 years. The record of don Rumsfeld's tenure
is clear: There have been more profound change... there has been
more profound change at the department of defense over the past six
years than at any time since the department's creation in the late
럼스필드 전 국방장관의 답사>> Ours is also a world of many friends and allies,
but sadly, realistically, friends and allies with declining defense
investment and declining capabilities and I would add, as a result,
with increasing vulnerabilities. All of which requires that the
united states of America invest more. Today, it should be clear that
not only is weakness provocative, but the perception of weakness on
our part can be provocative as well. A conclusion by our enemies
that it may well be comforting to some to consider graceful exits
from the agonies and, indeed, the ugliness of combat, but the enemy
thinks differently. Under the president's leadership, this country
made a decision to confront the extremists' ideology of hatred that
spawned a worldwide movement and to take the fight to the enemy. The
alternative was inaction and defense, a pattern that history has
shown only emboldens the enemy. Our country has taken on a bracing
and difficult task. But let there be no doubt: It is neither
hopeless nor without purpose. We're in what will be a long struggle.
It's new, it's complex, and even after five years, it's still
somewhat unfamiliar. That we have been successful-- I would add
fortunate-- to have suffered not one single attack here at home
since September 11,2001, has contributed to a misperception in some
quarters that the threat is gone. It is not.

부시 대통령이 이락 파병 병력을 증강하려 하는 것을
지지하시느냐고 사회자가 콘돌리자 라이사에게 질문. President
bush and the new defense secretary Bob Gates have made it clear
in their serious thought to increasing the number of troops in
Iraq. Do you support that as secretary of state?
the President is examining the options that will help us be
successful in this new phase, a phase that really began after
the bombing of the Sara a golden mosque with a rise of sectarian
violence, a government in Iraq that's determined to take more
responsibility for its security. And so the President's looking
at his options....
크리스마스 시즌 탐방: 앤드류 카네기(Andrew Carnegie)
카네기는 사회진화론을 지지하였으며, 적자생존을 믿었다. 임금 인상 대신 도서관과 박물관을 지어주었다.
부를 창출하여서는 개인이 아니라 사회에 환원.
왜 노동자 임금을 올려주지 않느냐는 질문에 노동자에게 정말로 필요한 것은 학교와 도서관이라고 대답한 카네기.
If I raised your wages, where would they go? They would go to
better cuts of meat, to drink, to clothing. To things of the
flesh, to things of the body. That's not what the working people
need. That's not what this community, Pittsburgh, needs. What it
needs are things of the spirit: Libraries, concert halls,
schools. And you wouldn't pay for that yourselves so you need me
to take it out of your paychecks and give it back to you."
