In a news conference on March 6, 2003, President Bush said, regarding Saddam: ” ‘So, in the name of security and peace, if we have to–if we have to–we’ll disarm him. I hope he disarms. Or, perhaps, I hope he leaves the country. I hear a lot of talk from different nations around where Saddam Hussein might be exiled. That would be fine with me–just so long as Iraq disarms after he’s exiled. …And our intention–we have no quarrel with anybody other than Saddam and his group of killers who have destroyed a society.’ ”
