Condoleezza Rice Quotes / Quotations

Any time you have a situation in which you are calling for more time rather than calling for Iraq to immediately comply, it plays into the hands of Saddam Hussein.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


But I want to just caution, it is not incumbent on the United States to prove that Saddam Hussein is trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction. He's already demonstrated that he's trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


But the truth of the matter is, we're an open society, we want to remain an open society, and there will continue to be vulnerability. That's why we have to meet the threats when they are not yet taking place on our territory and on our soil.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Does anybody think these people were just sitting around drinking tea?
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


I believe the title was 'Bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside the United States.'
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


I don't think anybody can take the word of Saddam Hussein and his regime, and certainly an American president and allies who are obligated to worry about the safety and security of our countries, cannot take the word of this dictator, who lies, pathologically lies.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


If we wait until that blackmail includes the ability to blackmail with a nuclear weapon, we will have made a grave mistake.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


It has been, after all, 11 years, more than a decade now, of defiance of U.N. resolutions by Saddam Hussein. Every obligation that he signed onto after the Gulf War, so that he would not be a threat to peace and security, he has ignored and flaunted.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


It is high time that the international community tell Saddam Hussein and his regime that this is not an issue of negotiation with the U.N. about obligations that they undertook in 1991.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Let's remember that in 1998 when things came to a head with the Iraqi regime about their treatment of inspectors, the United States Congress overwhelmingly passed a law called the Iraqi Liberation Act that said Saddam Hussein's regime is a threat to peace and stability and ought to be removed.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Military history has swung back and forth between advantage to the offence and advantage to the defence. When the offence has the advantage, then a new technology will come along that will temporarily give the defence the advantage and vice versa. Football has that kind of pattern, too.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Now, al Qaeda's on the run. Afghanistan is no longer a base of operations. The Afghan government is a friendly government that is trying to bring democracy to its people.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Our policies toward Iraq simply are to protect the region and to protect Iraq's people and neighbors.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Power matters. But there can be no absence of moral content in American foreign policy, and furthermore, the American people wouldn't accept such an absence. Europeans giggle at this and say we're naive and so on, but we're not Europeans, we're Americans - and we have different principles.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Punish France, ignore Germany, and forgive Russia.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


So I think, if September 11 taught us anything, it taught us that we're vulnerable, and vulnerable in ways that we didn't fully understand.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Success is not assured, but America is resolute: this is the best chance for peace we are likely to see for some years to come - and we are acting to help Israelis and Palestinians seize this chance.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


The people of the Middle East share the desire for freedom. We have an opportunity - and an obligation - to help them turn this desire into reality.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


The problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly Saddam can acquire nuclear weapons. But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


The United Nations charter actually has teeth, and Article VII does permit that there can be necessary means taken.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


The United States is committed to helping Iraq recover from the conflict, but Iraq will not require sustained aid.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein's regime is a danger to the United States and to its allies, to our interests.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


There was no silver bullet that could have prevented the 11 September attacks. There was nothing demonstrating or showing that something was coming in the United States. If there had been something, we would have acted on it.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


There's no doubt that it's still a dangerous place, Afghanistan. The fortunate thing is that the United States was helping to provide security for Chairman Karzai. And it shows that the United States is committed to that regime.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We are at war, and our security as a nation depends on winning that war.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We know that there are unaccounted-for Scud and other ballistic missiles in Iraq. And part of the problem is that, since 1998, there has been no way to even get minimal information about those programs except through intelligence means.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We need a common enemy to unite us.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We needed to go back on the offense and offer clear leadership on Iraq.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We will continue to work together in our common fight against terror.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We're in a new world. We're in a world in which the possibility of terrorism, married up with technology, could make us very, very sorry that we didn't act.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


We've been a country that's been fortunate to be protected by two oceans, to not have serious attacks on our territory for most of our history. And we were unfortunately reminded in a very devastating way of our vulnerability.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Well, I'd very interested to know how one can dismiss a weapons of mass destruction program that was well documented before 1991, when the inspectors actually arrived, what they found in 1991; that was being documented until 1998 when the inspectors left; that continues to gather momentum.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


Well, there's been plenty of ultimatums, and one thing that we better be very clear is that we can't continue to have the kind of defiance of the United Nations, the defiance of the international community that we've had.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice


What we're hearing from everyone is that they understand that Saddam Hussein is a threat. They understand that he's been a threat for a long time.
Quotation of Condoleezza Rice
