President George W. Bush, when visiting the Mayport Naval Station: “At any moment during the last 97 days — and during the last 12 years — Saddam Hussein could have completely and immediately disarmed himself. Instead, he’s used all this time to build and to hide weapons. He must be hoping that by stalling he’ll buy himself another 12 years. He’s wrong. (Applause.) This country will not accept a serious and mounting threat to our nation, our people, and our friends and allies.”
