I've been watching the coverage of former President Reagan's death, and the various remembrances of his life. There was one quote I saw that virtually leapt out of the TV, chased me around the room, and struck me over the head. So I tracked it down to a speech (it's in the 8th paragraph) he delivered to his country on March 23 of 1983:

"The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor."

Did anyone bother pointing this out to President Bush?
