布什为美国反恐战争辩护Bush Defends US War on Terror

20 August, 2008

美国总统布什为美国的反恐战争以及美国政府持续向恐怖分子施压的努力进行辩护。布什总统星期三向一个退伍军人团体讲了话。美国总统侯选人奥巴马和麦凯恩本周初在佛罗里达也向这个团体发表了讲演。

布什总统夸赞他的政府努力加强对退役军人的支持、促进军队的现代化及协调统一情报部门同恐怖主义作斗争。

布什总统告诉海外战争退伍军人全国大会,美国不应把恐怖主义仅仅当作执法问题。他说,为了美国人民的安全,应当调动全国一切资源力量追捕恐怖分子。

U.S. President George Bush has defended the U.S. war on terror and his administration's efforts to keep pressure on terrorists. Mr. Bush today (Wednesday) addressed the same veterans group that U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain addressed in (the southeastern state of) Florida earlier this week.

The president touted his administration's efforts to boost support for veterans, modernize the military and unify the intelligence community to combat terrorism.

Mr. Bush told the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention that the United States must not treat terrorism simply as a law enforcement matter. Instead, he said, the country must use all assets of national power to hunt terrorists in order to keep Americans safe.
