Straw: World Not Split on Iran

The United States has been divided on the strategy of finishing this war on terrorism in Iraq. The United States has been divided on its opinions about why we went in the first place. The United States has been divided on how it wants to talk about its foreign policy. The United States has been divided on the border issue. The United States has appeared divided on a lot of issues and debates on a variety of issues.

The world sees this. The world sees this very clearly. The world recognizes this. Some see it as a weakness. Some see it as a strength. It can be both. We are a country where active, open debate of issues prevails.

It is a mistake however for anyone to think that the United States’s open debate and discussion of public policy is a weakness. It is also a mistake to think that we are a divided country. We will fight for what we believe in. We will fight to defend our freedoms. We will fight to defend our country and our country’s allies. This fight may be on the battlefield, the courtroom or the capitals and embassies of this world. It may involve tanks, justice, speeches, ideas and diplomacy. This fight may look a lot of different ways, but we will fight for what we know is right.

It is a mistake to think that the rest of the world is any different. It is a mistake to think that this world will sit back on its hands. It is a mistake to think that just because the United States has open conversations and debates that we are hesistate or unable to act. It is a mistake to think that the world would be the same way.

Iran it is a mistake to pursue nuclear armament. The United States will not stand for it, neither will the world.
