US will not be shaken from Iraq


“We will not be shaken by the thugs and terrorists,” Bush said in a speech here as US troops backed by helicopters battled Shiite radicals in Baghdad and launched an operation in the flashpoint Sunni town of Fallujah, a day after clashes left more than 50 dead.

“These killers don’t have values,” he added, without specifically mentioning any particular Iraqi group or the deaths of 11 .

“A free Iraq will be a major victory in the war on terror. A free Iraq will change the Middle East. A free Iraq will make the world more safe. A free Iraq will make America more secure,” Bush said.
