TOAST FOR ROKMC
EVENT ON 12 DEC 01
Some 80 Countries lost citizens
during the attack on the USA on 11 September. We are at risk until
we eliminate the terrorist menace, including terrorist networks,
and their leaders. Korea has a long history of dealing with terrorism,
from the attack on the Blue House, to Rangoon, to the blowing up
of a KAL plane in 1987 to spoil the 88 Olympics. Korea has been
strong and a success. We, USA, will persever and win also.
President Bush asked us to be
ready in this terrorist war. He as said, We will not change
our way of life, we will change their way of life!
This terrorist group operates
in 60 countries in the world, many countries close to Korea. We
will work together to be stronger and safe. Over 80 countries lost
citizens, to include Korea. The USA is deeply grateful to all who
have joined the great coalition against terror, and Korea was one
of the early countries to aid in this effort.
I propose a Toast:
To the Republic of Korea, their
military, and especially their ROK Marines, for the fine assistance
we will look forward to in the future, of making both our countries
and the world a safer place.
