Tuesday, 11 September 2001 : "Bush"Remarks by the President After Two Planes Crash Into World Trade Center
Today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. I have spoken to the Vice President, to the Governor of New York, to the Director of the FBI, and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families, and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act.
Terrorism against our nation will not stand.
He sounds like his dad saying 'This aggression will not stand.'
What does he even mean? Bush the 41st was talking about repelling or undoing Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.
What is there that can be undone here? How will this not 'stand'? What does he mean? Does he mean anything? Is there any content in anything he says?
I wish I had a President who knew how to say something meaningful, especially at a time like this.
