UN: Bush spoke

See the video of the President's performance today at the UN.

Here's a rundown of what he said:

He said thanks for help with Katrina: "Your response, like the response to last year's tsunami, has shown once again that the world is more compassionate and hopeful when we act together."

He said terrorism must be confronted: "The terrorists must know that wherever they go, they cannot escape justice." (Does anyone think it's weird he keeps referring to "the terrorists"? Who is he talking about?)

He calls for the world's nations to implement the Monterrey Consensus for economic development in the developing world (hello IMF). And he announced a new international partnership on Avian and Pandemic Influenza.

On Iraq: "the whole world has a vital interest in the success of a free Iraq -- and no civilized nation has an interest in seeing a new terror state emerge in that country."

On UN reform: "If member countries want the United Nations to be respected -- respected and effective, they should begin by making sure it is worthy of respect."
