  1. I'm proud to report many, many, many nations have signed up to be with us. But I want to assure you all that if I tire, they will go to sleep. And if we blink, so will they. (Jan. 22, 2002)
  2. We fight evil people, people who wanna murder, people who hate America and what we stand for. And that's why we'll be relentless and steady. The world looks to us for leadership. If we blink, they may go to sleep. That's why we're not going to blink. That's why we're going to be after them. That's why we're going to disrupt their finances. That's why we're going to hold people account. (Jan. 31, 2002)
  3. It is important for the world to understand that we struggle not just for freedom, but for civilization, itself. If the United States were to blink, the rest of the world will be lulled to sleep. (Mar. 4, 2002)
  4. See, that's the thing the American people have got to understand, that we've only been at this six months. This is going to be a long struggle. I keep saying that; I don't know whether you all believe me or not. But time will show you that it's going to take a long time to achieve this objective. And I can assure you, I am not going to blink. And I'm not going to get tired. (Mar. 13, 2002)
  5. The world watches the United States of America. If we were to blink, I think they might go to sleep. But I can assure you, we're not going to blink. (Mar. 27, 2002)
  6. I see a peaceful world, I do. The rest of the world watches us very carefully. I like to say, if the United States blinks, they'll go to sleep. We're not going to blink. (Mar. 29, 2002)
  7. I know some Americans wonder what is how long this is going to go on. The answer is, for however long it takes. History has called us into action. We're not going to blink, we're not going to get tired. We're going to do what is necessary to defend our freedoms. (Apr. 16, 2002)
  8. You know, history has called our nation into action. It's a unique moment, and we've responded mightily, and we will continue to respond, much to the chagrin of the enemy. If America goes to sleep, the rest of the world is in trouble. If we blink, the rest of the world will close their eyes. So we're not blinking, and we're not going to sleep. (Apr. 29, 2002)
  9. See, if we blink, everybody else goes to sleep. History has called us into action. History has laid the mantle of responsibility for peace squarely on our shoulders. I accept that responsibility, and so does the American people. (May 1, 2002)
