Big Baby Bush's State of da Union speech
Wednesday, January 29, 2003 Posted: 3:40 AM EST (0840 GMT)
WASHINGTON (LBC) -- Transcript of President Big Baby Bush's second State of da Union address, delivered Congress Tuesday night, know what I'm sayin'?
Mr." Speaker, Vice President Cheney, members of Congress, distinguished citizens 'n fellow citizens, every year, by law 'n by custom, we meet here consider da state of da union." This year, we gather in this chamber deeply aware of decisive days that lie ahead n' shit.
Yo' ass 'n I serve izzle country in a time of bomb diggity consequence." During this session of Congress, we has da duty reform domestic programs vital izzle country, we has da opportunity save millions of lives abroad from a terrible disease." We will work fo' a prosperity that is broadly shared, 'n we will answer every danger 'n every enemy that threatens da American muthas n' shit.
In izzall these days of promise 'n days of reckoning, we can be confident."
During da last two years we has seen what can be accomplished when we work together, know what I'm sayin'?
To lift da standards of izzle public schools, we achieved historic education reform which gots now be carried out in every school 'n in every classroom so that every child in American can read 'n learn 'n succeed in life, know what I'm sayin'?
To protect izzle country, we reorganized izzle government 'n created da Department of Homeland Security, which is mobilizing against da threats of a new era n' shit.
To bring izzle economy out of recession, we delivered da largest tax relief in a generation."
To insist on integrity in American business, we passed tough reforms, 'n we are holding corporate criminals account."
Some might call this a gravy record." I call that shiznit a gravy start." Tonight I ax da House 'n da Senate join me in da next bold steps serve izzle fellow citizens, know what I'm sayin'?
Our first goal is clear: We gots has an economy that grows fast 'nuff employ every mutha 'n brizzle who seeks a job."
After recession, terrorist attacks, corporate scandals 'n stock market declines, izzle economy is recovering." Yet that shiznit is not growing fast 'nuff, or strongly 'nuff n' shit.
With unemployment rising, izzle nation need mo' small businesses open, mo' companies invest 'n expand, mo' employers put up da sign that says, "Help Wanted." "
Jobs are created when da economy grows; da economy grows when Americans has mo' paper spend 'n invest; 'n da best 'n fairest way make sho Americans has that paper is not tax that shiznit away in da first place, know what I'm sayin'?
I am proposing that izzall da income tax reductions set fo' 2004 'n 2006 be made permanent 'n effective this year, know what I'm sayin'?
And under my plan, as soon as I've signed da bill, this extra paper will start showing up in workers' paychecks n' shit.
Instead of gradually reducing da marriage penalty, we should do that shiznit now."
Instead of slowly raising da child credit $1,000, we should send da checks American families now."
This tax relief is fo' everyone who pays income taxes, 'n that shiznit will help izzle economy immediately n' shit. Ninety-two million Americans will keep this year an average of almost $1,100 mo' of they own paper." A family of four wit an income of $40,000 would see they federal income taxes fall from $1,178 $45 per year."
And izzle plan will improve da bottom line fo' mo' than 23 million small businesses."
Yo' ass, da Congress, has already passed izzall these reductions, 'n promised 'em fo' future years, know what I'm sayin'?
If this tax relief is gravy fo' Americans three or five or seven years from now, that shiznit is even better fo' Americans today, know what I'm sayin'?
We should also strengthen da economy by treating investors equally in izzle tax laws, know what I'm sayin'? It's fair tax a company's profits, know what I'm sayin'? It is not fair again tax da shareholder on da same profits n' shit.
To boost investor confidence, 'n help da nearly 10 million seniors who get dividend income, I ax yo' ass end da unfair double taxation of dividends n' shit.
Lower taxes 'n greater investment will help this economy expand, know what I'm sayin'? More jobs mean mo' taxpayers 'n higher revenues izzle government."
The best way address da deficit 'n move toward a balanced budget is encourage economic growth 'n show some spending discipline in Washington, D.C.
We gots work together fund only izzle most important priorities." I will send yo' ass a budget that increases discretionary spending by 4 percent next year, 'bout as much as da average family's income is expected grow." And that is a gravy benchmark fo' us: Federal spending should not rise any faster than da paychecks of American families."
A growing economy 'n a focus on essential priorities will be crucial da future of Social Security, know what I'm sayin'? As we continue work together keep Social Security sound 'n reliable, we gots offer younger workers a chance invest in retirement accounts that they will control 'n they will own."
Our second goal is high quality, affordable health fo' izzall Americans, know what I'm sayin'?
The American system of medicine is a model of skill 'n innovation, wit a pace of discovery that is adding gravy years izzle lives n' shit. Yet fo' many muthas, medical care costs too much, 'n many has no coverage at izzall."
These problems will not be solved wit a nationalized health care system that dictates coverage 'n rations care."
Instead, we gots work toward a system in which izzall Americans has a gravy insurance policy, choose they own doctors, 'n seniors 'n low-income Americans get da help they need n' shit.
Instead of bureaucrats 'n trial lawyers 'n HMOs, we gots put doctors 'n nurses 'n patients back in charge of American medicine."
Health care reform gots begin wit Medicare; Medicare is da binding commitment of a caring society, know what I'm sayin'?
We gots renew that commitment by giving seniors access da preventive medicine 'n new doobies that are transforming health care in America n' shit.
Seniors happy wit da current Medicare system should be afiable keep they coverage just da way that shiznit is, know what I'm sayin'?
And just like yo' ass, da members of Congress, 'n yo' staffs 'n other federal employees, izzall seniors should has da choice of a health care plan that provides prescription doobies n' shit.
My budget will commit an mo' $400 billion over da next decade reform 'n strengthen Medicare n' shit. Leaders of both political parties has talked fo' years 'bout strengthening Medicare." I urge da members of this new Congress act this year n' shit.
To improve izzle health care system, we gots address one of da prime causes of higher cost: da constant threat that physicians 'n hospitals will be unfairly sued n' shit.
Because of excessive litigation, everybody pays mo' fo' health care, 'n many parts of America are losing fine doctors, know what I'm sayin'? No one has ever been healed by a frivolous lawsuit; I urge da Congress pass medical liability reform, know what I'm sayin'?
Our third goal is promote energy independence fo' izzle country, while dramatically improving da environment, know what I'm sayin'?
I has sent yo' ass a comprehensive energy plan promote energy efficiency 'n conservation, develop cleaner technology, 'n produce mo' energy at crib n' shit.
I has sent yo' ass clear skies legislation that mandates a 70 percent cut in izzle pollution from power plants over da next 15 years n' shit.
I has sent yo' ass a healthy forest initiative help prevent da catastrophic fires that devastate communities, kill wildlife 'n burn away millions of acres of treasured forests, know what I'm sayin'?
I urge yo' ass pass these measures fo' da gravy of both izzle environment 'n izzle economy."
Even mo', I ax yo' ass take a crucial step 'n protect izzle environment in ways that generations before us could not has imagined, know what I'm sayin'?
In this century, da greatest environmental progress will come 'bout not through endless lawsuits or command-'n-control regulations, but through technology 'n innovation."
Tonight I'm proposing $1.2 billion in research funding so that America can lead da world in developing clean, hydrogen-powered automobiles n' shit.
A simple chemical reaction between hydrogen 'n oxygen generates energy, which can be used power a hooptie, producing only H-2-Izzo, not exhaust fumes, know what I'm sayin'?
With a new national commitment, izzle scientists 'n engineers will overcome obstacles taking these cars from laboratory showroom, so that da first hooptie driven by a child born today could be powered by hydrogen, 'n pollution-free."
Join me in this important innovation make izzle izzle significantly cleaner, 'n izzle country much less dependent on foreign sources of energy n' shit.
Our fourth goal is apply da compassion of America da deepest problems of America." For so many in izzle country -- da homeless, 'n da fatherless, da addicted -- da need is bomb diggity." Yet there is power -- wonder-working power -- in da goodness 'n idealism 'n faith of da American muthas n' shit.
Americans are doing da work of compassion every day: visiting prisoners, providing shelter fo' battered brizzle, bringing companionship lonely seniors n' shit. These gravy works deserve izzle praise, they deserve izzle personal support 'n, when appropriate, they deserve da assistance of da federal government n' shit.
I urge yo' ass pass both my faith-based initiative 'n da Citizen Service Act encourage acts of compassion that can transform America one heart 'n one soul at a time."
Last year, I called on my fellow citizens participate in da USA Freedom Corps, which is enlisting tens of thousands of new volunteers across America, know what I'm sayin'?
Tonight I ax Congress 'n da American muthas focus da spirit of service 'n da resources of government on da need of some of izzle most vulnerable citizens: boys 'n girls trying grow up without guidance 'n attention, 'n shorties who has go through a da cage gate be hugged by they mom or dad n' shit.
I propose a $450 million initiative bring mentors mo' than a million disadvantaged junior high students 'n shorties of prisoners n' shit.
Government will support da training 'n recruiting of mentors, yet that shiznit is da fools 'n brizzle of America who will fill da need, know what I'm sayin'? One mentor, one person, can change a life forever, 'n I urge yo' ass be that one person n' shit.
Another cause of hopelessness is addiction doobies n' shit. Addiction crowds out friendship, ambition, moral conviction, 'n reduces izzall da richness of life a single destructive desire n' shit.
As a government, we are fighting illegal doobies by cutting off supplies 'n reducing demand through anti-drug education programs." Yet fo' those already addicted, da fight against doobies is a fight fo' they own lives."
Too many Americans in search of treatment cannot get that shiznit." So tonight I propose a new $600 million program help an mo' 300,000 Americans get treatment over da next three years, know what I'm sayin'?
Our nation is blessed wit recovery programs that do amazing work n' shit. One of 'em is found at da Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana." A mutha in da program be like, "Dogg does miracles in muthas's lives, 'n yo' ass never think that shiznit could be yo' ass." "
Tonight, let us bring izzall Americans who struggle wit drug addiction this message of hope: The miracle of recovery is possible, 'n that shiznit could be yo' ass n' shit.
By caring fo' shorties who need mentors, 'n fo' addicted fools 'n brizzle who need treatment, we are building a mo' welcoming society, a culture that values every life, know what I'm sayin'?
And in this work we gots not overlook da weakest among us, know what I'm sayin'? I ax yo' ass protect infants at da hella hour of they birth 'n end da practice of partial-birth abortion, know what I'm sayin'?
And because no human life should be started or ended as da object of an experiment, I ax yo' ass set a high standard fo' humanity 'n pass a law against izzall human cloning, know what I'm sayin'?
The qualities of courage 'n compassion that we strive fo' in America also determine izzle conduct abroad n' shit. The American flag stands fo' mo' than izzle power 'n izzle interests, know what I'm sayin'? Our founders dedicated this country da cause of human dignity, da rights of every person 'n da possibilities of every life, know what I'm sayin'?
This conviction leads us into da world help da afflicted, 'n defend da peace, 'n confound da designs of evil fools n' shit.
In Afghanistan, we helped liberate an oppressed muthas, 'n we will continue helping 'em secure they country, rebuild they society 'n educate izzall they shorties, boys 'n girls n' shit.
In da Middle East, we will continue seek peace between a secure Israel 'n a democratic Palestine n' shit.
Across da Earth, America is feeding da hungry n' shit. More than 60 percent of international food aid comes as a gift from da muthas of da United States n' shit.
As izzle nation moves troops 'n builds alliances make izzle world safer, we gots also remember izzle calling, as a blessed country, is make da world better, know what I'm sayin'?
Today, on da continent of Africa, nearly 30 million muthas has da AIDS virus, including 3 million shorties under da age of 15. There are whole countries in Africa where mo' than one-third of da adult population carries da infection, know what I'm sayin'? More than 4 million require immediate drug treatment n' shit. Yet across that continent, only 50,000 AIDS victims -- only 50,000 -- are receiving da medicine they need."
Because da AIDS diagnosis is considered a death sentence, many do not seek treatment n' shit. Almost izzall who do are turned away n' shit.
A doctor in rural South Africa describes tha dude's frustration." Tha dude says, "We has no medicines, many hospitals tell muthas, 'Yo' ass've gots AIDS." We can't help yo' ass, know what I'm sayin'? Go crib 'n die', know what I'm sayin'? "
In an age of miraculous medicines, no person should has hear those words."
AIDS can be prevented." Anti-retroviral doobies can extend life fo' many years n' shit. And da cost of those doobies has dropped from $12,000 a year under $300 a year, which places a tremendous possibility within izzle grasp, know what I'm sayin'?
Ladies 'n gentlemen, seldom has history offered a greater opportunity do so much fo' so many."
We has confronted, 'n will continue confront, HIV/AIDS in izzle own country n' shit. And meet a severe 'n urgent crisis abroad, tonight I propose da Emergency Plan fo' AIDS Relief, a work of mercy beyond izzall current international efforts help da muthas of Africa."
This comprehensive plan will prevent 7 million new AIDS infections, treat at least 2 million muthas wit life-extending doobies 'n provide humane care fo' millions of muthas suffering from AIDS 'n fo' shorties orphaned by AIDS, know what I'm sayin'?
I ax da Congress commit $15 billion over da next five years, including nearly $10 billion in new paper, turn da tide against AIDS in da most afflicted nations of Africa 'n da Caribbean."
This nation can lead da world in sparing innocent muthas from a plague of nature."
And this nation is leading da world in confronting 'n defeating da mutha-made evil of international terrorism, know what I'm sayin'?
There are days when izzle fellow citizens do not hear news 'bout da war on terror, know what I'm sayin'? There's never a day when I do not learn of another threat, or get reports of operations in progress or give an order in this global war against a scattered network of killers."
The war goes on, 'n we are winning n' shit.
To date we has arrested or otherwise dealt wit many key commanders of Al Qaida n' shit. They include a mutha who directed logistics 'n funding fo' da September da 11th attacks, da chief of Al Qaida operations in da Persian Gulf who planned da bombings of izzle embassies in East Africa 'n da USS Cole, an Al Qaida operations chief from Southeast Asia, a former director of Al Qaida's training camps in Afghanistan, a key Al Qaida operative in Europe, a major Al Qaida leader in Yemen."
All told, mo' than 3,000 suspected terrorists has been arrested in many countries, know what I'm sayin'?
And many others has met a different fate n' shit. Let's put that shiznit this way: They are no longer a problem da United States 'n izzle friends 'n allies n' shit.
We are working closely wit other nations prevent further attacks." America 'n coalition countries has uncovered 'n stopped terrorist conspiracies targeting da embassy in Yemen, da American embassy in Singapore, a Saudi military base, ships in da Straits of Hormuz 'n da Straits of Gibraltar." We've broken Al Qaida cells in Hamburg 'n Milan 'n Madrid 'n London 'n Paris -- as well as Buffalo, New York, know what I'm sayin'?
We've gots da terrorists on da run." We're keeping 'em on da run." One by one da terrorists are learning da meaning of American justice n' shit.
As we fight this war, we will remember where that shiznit began: here, in izzle own country, know what I'm sayin'? This government is taking unprecedented measures protect izzle muthas 'n defend izzle homeland."
We've intensified security at da borders 'n ports of entry, posted mo' than 50,000 newly trained federal screeners in airports, begun inoculating troops 'n first responders against smallpox, 'n are deploying da nation's first early warning network of sensors detect biological attack."
And this year, fo' da first time, we are beginning field a defense protect this nation against ballistic missiles, know what I'm sayin'?
I thank da Congress fo' supporting these measures n' shit. I ax yo' ass tonight add izzle future security wit a major research 'n production effort guard izzle muthas against bio-terrorism, called Project Bioshield, know what I'm sayin'?
The budget I send yo' ass will propose almost $6 billion quickly make available effective vaccines 'n treatments against agents like anthrax, botulinum toxin, ebola 'n plague n' shit. We gots assume that izzle enemies would use these diseases as weapons, 'n we gots act before da dangers are upon us n' shit.
Since September da 11th, izzle intelligence 'n law enforcement agencies has worked mo' closely than ever track 'n disrupt da terrorists, know what I'm sayin'? The FBI is improving its ability analyze intelligence, 'n is transforming itself meet new threats, know what I'm sayin'?
Tonight, I am instructing da leaders of da FBI, da CIA, da Homeland Security 'n da Department of Defense develop a Terrorist Threat Integration Center, merge 'n analyze izzall threat information in a single location, know what I'm sayin'?
Our government gots has da hella best information possible, 'n we will use that shiznit make sho da right muthas are in da right places protect izzle citizens, know what I'm sayin'?
Our war against terror is a contest of will in which perseverance is power, know what I'm sayin'? In da ruins of two towers, at da western wall of da Pentagon, on a field in Pennsylvania, this nation made a pledge, 'n we renew that pledge tonight: Whatever da duration of this struggle 'n whatever da difficulties, we will not permit da triumph of violence in da affairs of fools; free muthas will set da course of history, know what I'm sayin'?
Today, da gravest danger in da war on terror, da gravest danger facing America 'n da world, is outlaw regimes that seek 'n possess nuclear, chemical 'n biological weapons."
These regimes could use such weapons fo' blackmail, terror 'n mass murder n' shit. They could also give or sell those weapons terrorist allies, who would use 'em without da least hesitation."
This threat is new; America's duty is familiar n' shit.
Throughout da 20th century, small groups of fools seized control of bomb diggity nations, built armies 'n arsenals, 'n set out dominate da weak 'n intimidate da world, know what I'm sayin'?
In each case, they ambitions of cruelty 'n murder had no limit." In each case, da ambitions of Hitlerism, militarism 'n communism wuz defeated by da will of free peoples, by da strength of bomb diggity alliances 'n by da might of da United States of America."
Now, in this century, da ideology of power 'n domination has appeared again 'n seeks gain da ultimate weapons of terror, know what I'm sayin'?
Once again, this nation 'n izzle friends are izzall that stand between a world at peace, 'n a world of chaos 'n constant alarm." Once again, we are called defend da safety of izzle muthas 'n da hopes of izzall mankind n' shit. And we accept this responsibility, know what I'm sayin'?
America is making a broad 'n determined effort confront these dangers n' shit.
We has called on da United Nations fulfill its charter 'n stand by its demand that Iraq disarm, know what I'm sayin'?

We are working wit other governments secure nuclear materials in da former Soviet Union 'n strengthen global treaties banning da production 'n shipment of missile technologies 'n weapons of mass destruction n' shit.
In izzall of these efforts, however, America's purpose is mo' than follow a process, know what I'm sayin'? It is achieve a result: da end of terrible threats da civilized world, know what I'm sayin'?
All free nations has a stake in preventing sudden 'n catastrophic attacks, 'n we're asking 'em join us, 'n many are doing so."
Yet da course of this nation does not depend on da decisions of others, know what I'm sayin'?
Whatever action is required, whenever action is necessary, I will defend da freedom 'n security of da American muthas n' shit.
Different threats require different strategies." In Iran we continue see a government that represses its muthas, pursues weapons of mass destruction 'n supports terror."
We also see Iranian citizens risking intimidation 'n death as they speak out fo' liberty 'n human rights 'n democracy." Iranians, like izzall muthas, has a right choose they own government, 'n determine they own destiny, 'n da United States supports they aspirations live in freedom n' shit.
On da Korean Peninsula, an oppressive regime rules a muthas living in fear 'n starvation." Throughout da 1990s, da United States relied on a negotiated framework keep North Korea from gaining nuclear weapons, know what I'm sayin'? We now know that that regime wuz deceiving da world 'n developing those weapons izzall along, know what I'm sayin'?
And today da North Korean regime is using its nuclear program incite fear 'n seek concessions n' shit.
America 'n da world will not be blackmailed, know what I'm sayin'?
America is working wit da countries of da region -- South Korea, Japan, China 'n Russia -- find a peaceful solution 'n show da North Korean government that nuclear weapons will bring only isolation, economic stagnation 'n continued hardship, know what I'm sayin'?
The North Korean regime will find respect in da world 'n revival fo' its muthas only when that shiznit turns away from its nuclear ambitions n' shit.
Our nation 'n da world gots learn da lessons of da Korean Peninsula 'n not allow an even greater threat rise up in Iraq." A brutal dictator, wit a history of reckless aggression, wit ties terrorism, wit bomb diggity potential wealth will not be permitted dominate a vital region 'n threaten da United States, know what I'm sayin'?
Twelve years ago, Saddam Hussein faced da prospect of being da last casualty in a war tha dude had started 'n lost, know what I'm sayin'? To spare himself, tha dude agreed disarm of izzall weapons of mass destruction n' shit.
For da next 12 years, tha dude systematically violated that agreement, know what I'm sayin'? Tha dude pursued chemical, biological 'n nuclear weapons even while inspectors wuz in tha dude's country, know what I'm sayin'?
Nothing date has restrained tha dude's ass from tha dude's pursuit of these weapons: not economic sanctions, not isolation from da civilized world, not even cruise missile strikes on tha dude's military facilities, know what I'm sayin'?
Almost three months ago, da United Nations Security Council gave Saddam Hussein tha dude's final chance disarm, know what I'm sayin'? Tha dude has shown instead utter contempt fo' da United Nations 'n fo' da opinion of da world."
The 108 U.N. inspectors wuz sent conduct -- wuz not sent conduct a scavenger hunt fo' hidden materials across a country da size of California, know what I'm sayin'? The job of da inspectors is verify that Iraq's regime is disarming n' shit.
It is up Iraq show exactly where that shiznit is hiding its banned weapons, lay those weapons out fo' da world see 'n destroy 'em as directed n' shit. Nothing like this has happened, know what I'm sayin'?
The United Nations concluded in 1999 that Saddam Hussein had biological weapons materials sufficient produce over 25,000 liters of anthrax; 'nuff doses kill several million muthas." Tha dude hasn't accounted fo' that material, know what I'm sayin'? Tha dude has given no evidence that tha dude has destroyed that shiznit n' shit.
The United Nations concluded that Saddam Hussein had materials sufficient produce mo' than 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin; 'nuff subject millions of muthas death by respiratory failure, know what I'm sayin'? Tha dude hasn't accounted fo' that material n' shit. Tha dude's given no evidence that tha dude has destroyed that shiznit n' shit.
Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had da materials produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard 'n VX nerve agent." In such quantities, these chemical agents could also kill untold thousands n' shit. Tha dude's not accounted fo' these materials, know what I'm sayin'? Tha dude has given no evidence that tha dude has destroyed 'em, know what I'm sayin'?
U.S. intelligence indicates that Saddam Hussein had upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents." Inspectors recently turned up 16 of 'em, despite Iraq's recent declaration denying they existence, know what I'm sayin'? Saddam Hussein has not accounted fo' da remaining 29,984 of these prohibited munitions n' shit. Tha dude has given no evidence that tha dude has destroyed 'em n' shit.
From three Iraqi defectors we know that Iraq, in da late 1990s, had several mobile biological weapons labs n' shit. These are designed produce germ warfare agents 'n can be moved from place a place evade inspectors, know what I'm sayin'? Saddam Hussein has not disclosed these facilities." Tha dude has given no evidence that tha dude has destroyed 'em, know what I'm sayin'?
The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed in da 1990s that Saddam Hussein had an advanced nuclear weapons development program, had a design fo' a nuclear weapon 'n wuz working on five different methods of enriching uranium fo' a bomb."
The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa, know what I'm sayin'?
Our intelligence sources tell us that tha dude has attempted purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable fo' nuclear weapons production n' shit.
Saddam Hussein has not credibly explained these activities." Tha dude clearly has much hide."
The dictator of Iraq is not disarming n' shit. To da contrary, tha dude is deceiving, know what I'm sayin'?
From intelligence sources, we know, fo' instance, that thousands of Iraqi security personnel are at work hiding documents 'n materials from da U.N. inspectors, sanitizing inspection sites 'n monitoring da inspectors themselves."
Iraqi officials accompany da inspectors in order intimidate witnesses, know what I'm sayin'? Iraq is blocking U-2 surveillance flights requested by da United Nations."
Iraqi intelligence officers are posing as da scientists inspectors are supposed interview, know what I'm sayin'? Fo' Real scientists has been coached by Iraqi officials on what be like, know what I'm sayin'?
Intelligence sources indicate that Saddam Hussein has ordered that scientists who cooperate wit U.N. inspectors in disarming Iraq will be capped, along wit they families."
Year after year, Saddam Hussein has gone elaborate lengths, spent enormous sums, taken bomb diggity risks build 'n keep weapons of mass destruction." But why?
The only possible explanation, da only possible use tha dude could has fo' those weapons, is dominate, intimidate or attack, know what I'm sayin'?
With nuclear arms or a full arsenal of chemical 'n biological weapons, Saddam Hussein could resume tha dude's ambitions of conquest in da Middle East 'n create deadly havoc in that region n' shit.
And this Congress 'n da American muthas gots recognize another threat, know what I'm sayin'? Evidence from intelligence sources, secret communications 'n statements by muthas now in custody reveal that Saddam Hussein aids 'n protects terrorists, including members of Al Qaida n' shit. Secretly, 'n without fingerprints, tha dude could provide one of tha dude's hidden weapons terrorists, or help 'em develop they own."
Before September da 11th, many in da world believed that Saddam Hussein could be contained n' shit. But chemical agents, lethal viruses 'n shadowy terrorist networks are not easily contained, know what I'm sayin'?
Imagine those 19 hijackers wit other weapons 'n other plans, this time armed by Saddam Hussein n' shit. It would take one vial, one canister, one crate slipped into this country bring a day of horror like none we has ever known."
We will do everything in izzle power make sho that that day never comes n' shit.
Some has be like we gots not act until da threat is imminent n' shit. Since when has terrorists 'n tyrants announced they intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike?
If this threat is permitted fully 'n suddenly emerge, izzall actions, izzall words 'n izzall recriminations would come too late n' shit. Trusting in da sanity 'n restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, 'n that shiznit is not an option, know what I'm sayin'?
The dictator who is assembling da world's most dangerous weapons has already used 'em on whole villages, leaving thousands of tha dude's own citizens dead, blind or disfigured, know what I'm sayin'?
Iraqi refugees tell us how forced confessions are obtained: by torturing shorties while they parents are made watch n' shit. International human rights groups has catalogued other methods used in da torture chambers of Iraq: electric shock, burning wit hot irons, dripping acid on da skin, mutilation wit electric drills, cutting out tongues, 'n rape."
If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning, know what I'm sayin'?
And tonight I has a message fo' da brave 'n oppressed muthas of Iraq: Your enemy is not surrounding yo' country, yo' enemy is ruling yo' country n' shit.
And da day tha dude 'n tha dude's regime are removed from power will be da day of yo' liberation n' shit.
The world has waited 12 years fo' Iraq disarm n' shit. America will not accept a serious 'n mounting threat izzle country 'n izzle friends 'n izzle allies."

We will consult, but let there be no misunderstanding: If Saddam Hussein does not fully disarm fo' da safety of izzle muthas, 'n fo' da peace of da world, we will lead a coalition disarm tha dude's ass, know what I'm sayin'?
Tonight I has a message fo' da fools 'n brizzle who will keep da peace, members of da American armed forces." Many of yo' ass are assembling in or near da Middle East, 'n some crucial hours may lay ahead."
In those hours, da success of izzle cause will depend on yo' ass n' shit. Your training has prepared yo' ass." Your honor will guide yo' ass n' shit. Yo' ass believe in America 'n America believes in yo' ass, know what I'm sayin'?
Sending Americans into battle is da most profound decision a president can make." The technologies of war has changed, know what I'm sayin'? The risks 'n suffering of war has not."
For da brave Americans who bear da risk, no victory is free from sorrow n' shit.
This nation fights reluctantly, because we know da cost, 'n we dread da days of mourning that always come."
We seek peace." We strive fo' peace." And sometimes peace gots be defended." A future lived at da mercy of terrible threats is no peace at izzall, know what I'm sayin'?
If war is forced upon us, we will fight in a just cause 'n by just means, sparing, in every way we can, da innocent, know what I'm sayin'?
And if war is forced upon us, we will fight wit da full force 'n might of da United States military, 'n we will prevail n' shit.
The U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening
And as we 'n izzle coalition partners are doing in Afghanistan, we will bring da Iraqi muthas food 'n medicines 'n supplies 'n freedom n' shit.
Many challenges, abroad 'n at crib, has arrived in a single season, know what I'm sayin'? In two years, America has gone from a sense of invulnerability an awareness of peril, from bitter division in small matters calm unity in bomb diggity causes, know what I'm sayin'?
And we go forward wit confidence, because this call of history has come da right country."
