PEACE AND SECURITY (Part 1)
“Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
The New World Order
March 6, 1991
After his overwhelming victory over Saddam Hussein (Iraqi President, at that time), President Bush (Father) (President of the United States at that time), made a speech with a strong biblical accent, before the American Congress using the expression “The New World Order”, a few months before, on September 11, 1990. The international context of this “New Order” was the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 and the imminent end of the Soviet Empire which would finally take place on December 26, 1991. This speech (of September 11, 1990), laid the foundations for a new international relationship in the aftermath of the imminent end of the Cold War. This speech was presented before the American Congress, during the period of the first Gulf War (from August 2, 1990 to February 28, 1991). After the victory of the United States with the coalition of the 32 other countries, over Iraq, President Bush (father) delivered the State of the Union speech on March 6, 1991, which celebrated the victory . He repeated this expression of “new world order” of peace, security, freedom and respect for the law (You can see it, on the link: The Speech of President Bush, March 6, 1991).
The State of the Union Speech, presented by the President of the United States, on March 6, 1991, is a true celebration of the victory of the United States and the 32 other countries, over the ‘Iraq. In this speech, which was repeatedly applauded with standing ovations, President Bush (Father) outlined in four main points the international framework of this “New World Order” of peace, repeating the previous speech of September 11, 1990. These objectives of world peace made particular reference to the Middle East and the Persian Gulf; a goal of world peace by controlling the proliferation of weapons and not only by the army force, but also by diplomacy; an objective of world peace by economic aid. The second part of the speech is a true celebration of the greatness of the United States and its army, to establish peace and security in this world. This half hour of speech, is a clear proclamation of victory, and peace and security, symbolized by the beginning of a “New World Order”, of which the United States would be the guarantor.
