Go back to Sharing

Bill Clinton (1946 - Present)

September 11 was the dark side of this new age of global interdependence. If you don't want to live with barbed wire around your children and grandchildren for the next hundred years, then it's not enough to defeat the terrorist. We have to make a world where there are fewer potential terrorists and more partners. And that responsibility falls primarily upon the wealthy nations to spread the benefits and shrink the burdens.

(from the Dimbleby Memorial Lecture given at the Institute of Education in London, Dec. 18, 2001)
