Further thoughts

The terrorists struck, I would imagine, because of this summit. It is I think no co-incidence. For the first time in a very long time there is an international summit that actually looks likely of being able to do some good on the global scale. Not the pointless leaps of faith like Kyoto, but small certain steps. These small steps will, in time, be our surest and most successful challenge to the Evil that we face. Each small step drives the stake deeper into its black heart.

In the words of someone rather famous:

We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

That is our legacy. I do not doubt that we will honour it.
