Bush in London: "'The people have given us the duty to defend them and that duty sometimes requires the violent restraint of violent men. In some cases the measured use of force is all that protects us from a chaotic world ruled by force,' [Bush] said." Is he talking about himself?

"Bush said he believed in international institutions such as the United Nations, which he bypassed to launch war on Iraq, but that the United Nations' credibility - and viability - depended on a willingness to keep its word and act. 'America and Great Britain have done, and will do, all in their power to prevent the United Nations from solemnly choosing its own irrelevance and inviting the fate of the League of Nations,' he said."
