These are killers who hide in caves and send youngsters to their suicidal deaths. That's who we're trying to find. They kind of ooch around the dark corners of the world and look out, peep out around the corner. In the meantime, send these suicide squads. It doesn't require a lot of equipment. It doesn't require a lot of money, although we're doing everything we can to cut off their money. But we're making progress. (Oct. 22, 2002)
  2. Shelley understands, like I know, this is a different kind of war. Some great veterans here with us today, they remember the days when you could judge progress against an enemy by the number of tanks that you destroyed, or the number of airplanes you shot down, or the number of ships you sunk. This enemy doesn't have tanks, they don't have ships. They hide in caves. They live in they kind of ooch around the dark corners of the world, and send youngsters to their suicidal deaths. They're fanatics. They're motivated out of hate. They only way to treat them is like they are, cold-blooded killers, and run them down. (Oct. 31, 2002)

That protecting the people of this country, that's our most solemn duty now. And the reason why it's ongoing is because there's still an enemy that lurches around, which hates America. They hate America because of what we love. We love freedom, and we're not changing. (Nov. 1, 2002)
  4. And we're making progress. We're making progress. It's a different kind of war. You've just got to know it's a different kind of war. In the old days we could destroy tanks and airplanes and ships, and people say, well, they're making progress. It's a different kind of war because we're fighting people who are they send youngsters to their suicidal deaths and they try to find a dark cave. They're kind of lurching around in the dark corners of some cities around the world. There in over 60 countries. And slowly but surely, we're dismantling the terrorist network, which hates us because of what we love. See, they hate the fact that we love freedom. They can't stand the fact that in this country people can worship the almighty God any way he or she sees fit. (Dec. 3, 2002)
  5. See, we're now facing the first war of the 21st century. It's a different kind of war. Frank was a paratrooper. In those days you could measure the enemy by the number of battalions and number of tanks and number of airplanes. Now the enemy hides in caves. They lurch in the shadows of the world. They will strike and kill innocent citizens without any conscience, because they have no conscience. (Apr. 20, 2004)
