  6. SoapSTone – Occasion • Occasion: George Bush took the chance to address the nation on the successful capture of Saddam Hussein. • “Yesterday, December the 13th, at around 8:30 p.m. Baghdad time, United States military forces captured Saddam Hussein alive.” • “And now the former dictator of Iraq will face the justice he denied to millions.” • “It marks the end of the road for him, and for all who bullied and killed in his name.” • The occasion was addressed at the beginning of the speech and later mentioned throughout the speech.

  7. Soapstone – Audience • Audience: Specifically, George Bush addresses American’s, Iraqi’s, and men and women who were serving in Iraq at the time. • “And this afternoon, I have a message for the Iraqi people” • “I also have a message for all Americans” • “The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq.” • “May God bless the people of Iraq, and may God bless America. • These are examples to all the people that were addressed during the speech.

  8. Soapstone – Purpose • Purpose: This speech gives an expression of gratitude and increases the knowledge of the audience on the subject. • “Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate 'em.” • “You will not have to fear the rule of Saddam Hussein ever again.” • I chose these sentences because they are both examples of what the purpose/subject of the speech is.

  9. Soapstone – Speaker • Speaker: George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, gave this speech on December 14, 2003 so that everyone could be informed of Hussein's capture. • I have a message for the Iraqi people: You will not have to fear the rule of Saddam Hussein ever again. • I also have a message for all Americans: The capture of Saddam Hussein does not mean the end of violence in Iraq. • I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate 'em. • These examples are Bush stating the subject in three main points of the speech.

  10. Soapstone – Tone • Tone: The tone to Bush’s speech was straightforward. • “Yesterday, December the 13th, at around 8:30 p.m. Baghdad time, United States military forces captured Saddam Hussein alive.” • I chose this tone because Bush got to the point quickly.

  11. Phrasing/Meaning • “The capture of this man was crucial to the rise of a free Iraq. It marks the end of the road for him, and for all who bullied and killed in his name.” “All Iraqis can now come together and reject violence and build a new Iraq.” • These statements are claiming that finally, Iraq will be able to regain its sovereignty and build a new country without the oppression of a tyrant looming over them.

  12. Major Premise • “We've come to this moment through patience and resolve and focused action. And that is our strategy moving forward. The war on terror is a different kind of war, waged capture by capture, cell by cell, and victory by victory.” • In this statement, George Bush is stating that we have been successful in capturing Hussein because of our dedication to resolve this issue and our focus on it. However, the war on terror is different from a regular war because the main goal is to terrorize the people and is based more on capture and imprisonments than simple military action.

  13. Ethos The goals of our coalition are the same as your goals -- sovereignty for your country, dignity for your great culture, and for every Iraqi citizen, the opportunity for a better life. • George Bush compares the American coalition with Iraqi people by claiming that they both share in common the same goals. • By stating this, he tries to gain himself credibility because he shows that he is comparing both countries giving a sense of a union.

  14. Pathos “We still face terrorists who would rather go on killing the innocent than accept the rise of liberty in the heart of the Middle East.” • Essentially, George Bush is stating the fact that even though Hussein was captured, there will still be terrorists who would rather kill in his name, then to accept liberty in the Middle East. • This gives an emotional appeal because it sad to hear that terrorists kill the innocent for their distinct beliefs.

  15. Logos “Our security is assured by our perseverance and by our sure belief in the success of liberty. And the United States of America will not relent until this war is won.” • George Bush is stating we believe in liberty so much that our security is established off these beliefs and because of this American will not surrender until the war is won. • This give a logical appeal since we know that America will not surrender first.

  16. Repetition • “The goals of ourcoalition are the same as your goals — sovereignty for yourcountry, dignity foryourgreat culture…” • “Ourservicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt.” • “Oursecurity is assured by our perseverance and byoursure belief in the success of liberty.“ Throughout the speech, there is a constant use of “our” and “your.” Primarily, George Bush is attempting to unite the people together as a family with the usage of the word “our.” He is also putting them first in mind by continuously using “your.” This rhetorical device is effective enough to persuade the audience.

  17. Powerful Lines • The capture of Saddam Hussein does not mean the end of violence in Iraq. We still face terrorists who would rather go on killing the innocent than accept the rise of liberty in the heart of the Middle East. • Our security is assured by our perseverance and by our sure belief in the success of liberty. And the United States of America will not relent until this war is won. • The goals of our coalition are the same as your goals -- sovereignty for your country, dignity for your great culture, and for every Iraqi citizen, the opportunity for a better life. These lines are powerful because they center on the main key points of the speech. They are also effective on the audience because there informative and motivating.

  18. Some Favorites • “Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people.” • This is one of my favorite lines because Bush gives recognition to servicemen and women who fought during the war instead of trying to give himself credit. • “All Iraqis who take the side of freedom have taken the winning side. The goals of our coalition are the same as your goals -- sovereignty for your country, dignity for your great culture, and for every Iraqi citizen, the opportunity for a better life.” • This is another favorite line because he compares our American coalition to Iraqi goal giving the sense of equality and unity between the two.

  19. To Follow This speech was the to inform about the capture of Saddam Hussein. In effect, it set what was to come to Iraq. What followed…… • Afghanistan adopts a new constitution, laying the framework for democratic, national elections in October 2004. • Iraq regains its sovereignty. • The 9/11 Commission releases its public report.
