President Bush spoke at the commencement of the Air University in Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama University on the New World Order. His remarks were made in the Fuel Cell Hanger at the base. In his remarks, President Bush praised the performance of the U.S. Air Force in the Persian Gulf war, and said a New World Order was now “within our reach.” The New World Order could emerge from the rubble that was the Cold War and the Warsaw Pact. He stressed the need for a policy of “active engagement” to prevent the eventual worsening of relations that followed each of the two World Wars. He said the New World Order was a responsibility, created by the U.S.' successes, to achieve stability, economic progress and peace around the world. The responsibility of the U.S. was not to maintain perpetual global peace, but to contain aggression. Indigenous peoples must decide their own political futures. President Bush said he wanted the U.S. military out of the Persian Gulf as soon as possible, despite the presence of hundreds of thousands of refugees who the U.S. will aid but not militarily support. He said he would not have U.S. servicemen participate in a civil war in Iraq that has been going on for “ages.” Iraq would remain a “pariah” nation as long as Saddam Hussein remained in power in Iraq. close
