and Bush Proclamations
by Hitler 1939 and Bush 2003
| Proclamation by Adolf Hitler - September 1,1939.
Proclamation by Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of the Reich,
to the German Army, September 1,1939.
The Polish State has refused the peaceful settlement
of relations which I desired, and has appealed to
arms. Germans in Poland are persecuted with bloody
terror and driven from their houses. A series of
violations of the frontier, intolerable to a great
Power, prove that Poland is no longer willing to
respect the frontier of the Reich.
In order to put an end to this lunacy, I have no other
choice than to meet force with force from now on. The
German Army will fight the battle for the honour and
the vital rights of reborn Germany with hard
determination. I expect that every soldier, mindful of
the great traditions of eternal German soldiery, will
ever remain conscious that he is a representative of
the National-Socialist Greater Germany. Long live our
people and our Reich!
Proclamation by George W. Bush - March 16, 2003
We concluded that tomorrow is
a moment of truth for the world. Many nations have voiced a commitment to peace
and security, and now they must demonstrate that commitment to peace and
security in the only effective way: by supporting the immediate and
unconditional disarmament of Saddam Hussein. ...The dictator of Iraq and his
weapons of mass destruction are a threat to the security of free nations. He is
a danger to his neighbours. He is a
sponsor of terrorism. He is an obstacle to progress in
the Middle East.
