    ARLINGTON, Va., July 19, 2007 – Winning the war against terrorism requires warriors with multiple skills who can adapt to changing circumstances, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said here last night. Today’s anti-terror war is unlike any other conflict the United States has fought before, Gates told Marine Corps Association members. In Afghanistan and Iraq, “the men and women wearing our nation’s uniform have assumed the roles of warrior, diplomat, humanitarian, and development expert,” Gates pointed out, noting ruthless extremists employ roadside bombs and guerilla-style hit-and-run attacks to kill or wound U.S. and coalition forces, host-nation troops and innocent civilians....

Odierno briefed Pentagon reporters via a two-way link from his headquarters in Camp Liberty,...

    ANKARA, Turkey, March 24, 2006 – The war on terrorism is a partnership that will require all elements of international power and the patience of populations, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said here today.

    WASHINGTON, March 16, 2006 – Past victories over ideologies of hatred serve as a reminder that such triumphs require time, patience and sacrifice, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in Australia today.

Australia is Rice's final stop on a weeklong visit to Latin America and the Pacific. "We've won these struggles before against ideologies of hatred, but it's always taken time; it's taken patience; unfortunately, it's sometimes taken sacrifice. It's also taken good friends and allies like we have...

    WASHINGTON, March 14, 2006 – U.S. military might is only one piece of the solution to winning the war on terrorism, a defense official said here yesterday.

The effort requires the help of partner nations all over the globe, he said. Those enemies find opportunity in countries with which the United States is at peace, in countries where the United States is conducting military operations, and in ungoverned areas, he told the audience attending the 17th Annual National Defense Industrial...
