Bush: Iraq must not be abandoned

by on April 14th, 2004


”We are carrying out a decision that has already been made and will not change,” Bush told reporters in a formal East Room appearance. ”Any concession or retreat on our part will only embolden this enemy and invite more bloodshed.”

Holding a rare, prime-time news conference that focused almost exclusively on national security, Bush promised to commit additional US troops if needed to maintain order in Iraq even after the government handover. He repeated his conviction that the invasion was the right decision, and even held out hope that weapons of mass destruction may yet be found.
