Martin Buber suggested that evil prevailed because of the inability of man to imagine the real. In part, this is because I am at the beginning, and not the end, of my labors on the world stage. There is no simple formula here. We have been reminded that cruel and inhuman acts can be derived from distorted theological beliefs, as suicide bombers take the lives of innocent human beings, draped falsely in the cloak of God's will. For many years, the Swedish Academy interpreted "ideal" as "idealistic" idealistisk and used it as a reason not to give the prize to important but less romantic authors, such as Henrik Ibsen and Leo Tolstoy.

Perhaps of more immediate concern is the necessity for Iraq to comply fully with the unanimous decision of the [United Nations] Security Council that it eliminate all weapons of mass destruction and permit unimpeded access by inspectors to confirm that this commitment has been honored. As the head of the Northern Ireland government, he has taken the first steps towards building up the mutual confidence on which a lasting peace must be based. Strong institutions. For most of history, this concept of just war was rarely observed.

Somewhere today, in this world, a young protestor awaits the brutality of her government, but has the courage to march on. The family was impoverished, and only Alfred and his three brothers survived past childhood. And within America, there has long been a tension between those who describe themselves as realists or idealists — a tension that suggests a stark choice between the narrow pursuit of interests or an endless campaign to impose our values. Ladies and gentlemen, war may sometimes be a necessary evil. Let us realize that the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. These questions are not new.

We can do that — for that is the story of human progress; that is the hope of all the world; and at this moment of challenge, that must be our work here on Earth.

None has provided more vivid reminders of the dangers of peacekeeping than two of my close friends, [assassinated Egyptian President] Anwar Sadat and [assassinated Israeli Prime Minister] Yitzhak Rabin, who gave their lives for the cause of peace in the Middle East.

Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this: The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms.

And the closer we stand together, the less likely we will be faced with the choice between armed intervention and complicity in oppression. Martin Buber suggested that evil prevailed because of the inability of man to imagine the real.
