Bush says success in Iraq vital for U.S. security
font size    

U.S. President George W. Bush said on Friday that the success in Iraq will be vital for the security of the United States as well as long-term peace.

"Success in Iraq is vital of the security of the United States, and success in Iraq is vital for long-term peace," Bush said at a press conference held in Chicago, Illinois.

"Therefore, we will complete the mission," Bush said.

Bush said that the central front in the war on terror is Iraq, although he admitted that it is hard work.

The enemies in Iraq want to drive the United States out of Iraq "so they can spread their ideology of hate" and make Iraq become a safe haven for terrorists.

Bush, who has so far rejected a clear timetable for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq, has said that U.S. troops will stay in Iraq as long as necessary.

The United States has now some 135,000 troops stationed in Iraq.
