"Dying for Freedom and Democracy" 
Lecture: Fordham University, Nov. 9, 2007, 6:45 PM

By the 1990s, the United States had developed an intense "aversion to
casualties." Americans hesitated to enter into battle if there was a
possibility that even a few soldiers might be killed. People like Saddam
Hussein and Bin Laden accused the American people of being weak and corrupt,
possessing no ideals for which they were willing to die and kill. The Bush
administration responded to this challenge declaring: "Americans too possess
ideals for which we are willing to die and kill. As your young people martyr
themselves for Allah, so our young people will sacrifice their lives for
freedom and democracy."
