7. Protecting the Future

"Combating terrorism is a common global goal for all the countries of the civilised world. Terrorism is against the grain of all religious values and principles especially Islam. It also contradicts the basic human rights of security, peace and international stability"

HRH Saud Al-Faisal, Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, 10 Oct 2001


"Our war on terror is well begun, but it is only begun.  This campaign may not be finished on our watch -- yet it must be and it will be waged on our watch."

President Bush, State of the Union address, 29 Jan 2002

Coalition countries are co-operating closely to forestall future attacks from international terrorism

There are many countries where adoption of terrorist methods or the presence of terrorist or extremist networks causes us grave concern.

We will take the action we deem necessary in support of this aim, including military action, if absolutely necessary.

They are also countries working to constrain those groups and regimes believed to be seeking to acquire weapons of mass destruction.

The War has just begun, there will be many tough fights ahead, but the coalition remains steadfast in its objectives to defeat international terrorism and protect the lives of its people.
