President, you put a formal request to lớn Britain & othercountries to lớn supply troops for a possible conflict in Iraq. PRESIDENT BUSH: Is that a question, have we, or an assertedstatement? Q I understood you had -- PRESIDENT BUSH: Oh, I see. Q -- và I wonder what your expectation was for what Britainmight do. PRESIDENT BUSH: Well, my expectation is, is that we can vì chưng thispeacefully, if Saddam Hussein disarms. That"s my expectation. This is-- Saddam Hussein has got a decision lớn make: Will he uphold theagreement that he has made. And if he chooses to bởi so by disarmingpeacefully, the world will be better off for it. If he chooses not todisarm, we will work with our close friends, the closest of which isGreat Britain, & we will disarm him. But our first choice is not touse the military option. Our first choice is for Mr. Saddam Hussein todisarm. And that"s where we"ll be devoting a lot of our energies. Q And, Prime Minister, you have this request now. You alsoseem khổng lồ have a prospect of another fire strike, as well. Bởi vì youbelieve that many British troops và reserves are going lớn have toprepare for a Christmas away from their family celebrations in eitherfighting fires, or fighting Saddam Hussein? PRIME MINISTER BLAIR: We will bởi what"s necessary, both khổng lồ secureourselves at home, & to make sure that the will of the United Nationsis enforced abroad. & I think what you will find here at this NATOsummit is a totally united determination on behalf of the internationalcommunity, reflected in the unanimous United Nations resolution, thatSaddam Hussein has khổng lồ disarm himself of all weapons of massdestruction. Và how that happens is a choice for him. We hope, và want it to lớn happen, through the United Nationsinspectors, mandated by the whole of the international community. Butif he fails to lớn cooperate with them, if he fails to vày all he can -- andit is within his power -- khổng lồ help that process of disarmament throughthe United Nations, then he will be disarmed by force. Và that is theclear will of the international community. & I think you will find now that there is a consensus for thatposition virtually right across the civilized world. Q Thank you very much. PRESIDENT BUSH: Sure. I"m glad to lớn answer your every request.(Laughter.) Q How about our every question? PRESIDENT BUSH: I don"t want you khổng lồ get used khổng lồ asking too manyquestions. I"ve been answering them all the whole time I"ve been here,question after question after question. If you were to ask a question,Stretch, what would it have been, so I can think about it fortomorrow? I won"t answer it now. Q What"s your reaction khổng lồ the confirmation of bin Laden beingalive on the tape? PRESIDENT BUSH: Thank you. I"ve got a formulated answer --(laughter.) kết thúc 9:12 A.M.
