Bush at United Nations

Bush at United Nations Posted by Hello

On Tuesday, the President addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York, New York. He made the following key points in his discussion of progress made in the War on Terror and in spreading democracy around the world.

Every nation that wants peace will share the benefits of a freer world and has an obligation to help build that world.
The world's security is found in advancing rights of mankind.
Defending ideals is vital, but it is not enough; we must apply these ideals to the great issues of our time. Because we believe in human dignity:
America and many nations have established a global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria;
America and many nations have joined together to confront the evil of trafficking in human beings;
The world must have more effective means to stabilize regions in turmoil, and to halt religious violence and ethnic cleansing; and
Peaceful nations must stand for the advance of democracy.

Because the President believes the advance of liberty is the path to a safer and better world, he proposed establishing a Democracy Fund within the United Nations that would help countries lay the foundations of democracy by instituting the rule of law, independent courts, a free press, political parties, trade unions, and would fund the establishment of voter precincts, polling places, and support the work of election monitors. To show its commitment to the new Democracy Fund, the US will make an initial contribution.
