Convention Speech: John McCain


Senator McCain: We're Americans
We'll Never Surrender

Our choice wasn't between a benign status quo and the bloodshed of war. It was between war and a graver threat. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Not our critics abroad. Not our political opponents.
And certainly not a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam's Iraq was an oasis of peace when in fact it was a place of indescribable cruelty, torture chambers, mass graves and prisons that destroyed the lives of the small children held inside their walls.

Whether or not Saddam possessed the terrible weapons he once had and used, freed from international pressure and the threat of military action, he would have acquired them again.

The central security concern of our time is to keep such devastating weapons beyond the reach of terrorists.

We couldn't afford the risk posed by an unconstrained Saddam in these dangerous times.


We need a leader with the experience to make the tough decisions and the resolve to stick with them; a leader who will keep us moving forward even if it is easier to rest.

He has been tested and has risen to the most important challenge of our time, and I salute him. We're Americans, and we'll never surrender. Do not yield. Do not flinch. Stand up.

Stand up with our President and fight.
