Three quotes

“I don't think our troops ought to be used for what's called nation-building.”

Governor George W. Bush, Presidential Debate, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, October 11, 2000.

“We will stay until the mission is done. … Peace will be achieved by helping Afghanistan develop its own stable government. …[We] are working in the best traditions of George Marshall. Marshall knew that our military victory in World War II had to be followed by a moral victory that resulted in better lives for individual human beings.”

President George W. Bush, Virginia Military Institute, April 17, 2002.

“The United States Congress has stepped in to find nearly $300m in humanitarian and reconstruction funds for Afghanistan after the Bush administration failed to request any money in the latest budget.”

BBC World Service, 13 February, 2003.
