Madeline Albright


"Iraq is a long way from [the USA], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
February 18,1998

"Hussein has .. chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
November 10, 1999

"No one has done what Saddam Hussein has done, or is thinking of doing. He is producing WMDs and he is qualatively and quantitatively different from other dictators."
February 18, 1998

"I'm really surprised that people are defending the rights of Saddam Hussein."
February 18, 1998

"Saddam's goal ... is to achieve the lifting of U.N. sanctions while retaining and enhancing Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programs. We cannot, we must not and we will not let him succeed."
1998

"As we made very clear this week, we will take unilateral action when we feel our national interests have been threatened."
August 23, 1998

"Saddam was not just another dictator. He had invaded both Iran and Kuwait, and yearned to develop a nuclear bomb to impress an Arab world that despised him."
From "Madam Secretary"

It seemed to me obvious that, under the circumstances, it would have been immoral not to confront Saddam Hussein."
"Madam Secretary"

Wanting to shield Iraqi's from suffering, they [protesters] thought the way to do that was to oppose us. But most hadn't seen the video footage of Saddam's attack on the Kurdish village of Halabja in 1998, where five thousand died...they accused us of not caring but seemed to have no conception of the suffering that appeasing a ruthless dictator might cause."
Madam Secretary

"The world has not seen, except maybe Hitler, somebody who is quite as evil as Saddam Hussein. If you don't stop a horrific dictator before he gets started to far, then he could do untold damage."
February 19, 1997
