85,000 troops going to Iraq

In addition, 43,000 National Guard and Reserve support troops have been alerted that they may be sent as well.

"As long as the Middle East remains a place where freedom does not flourish," he said, "it will remain a place of stagnation, resentment and violence ready for export. And with the spread of weapons that can bring catastrophic harm to our country and to our friends, it would be reckless to accept the status quo."

Bush spoke before the National Endowment for Democracy, an organization formed during the Reagan administration to promote global freedom. In another step crucial to his policy in the Middle East, Bush later signed into law an $87.5 billion package for military and reconstruction efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan

"With this act of Congress, no enemy or friend can doubt that America has the resources and the will to see this war through to victory," Bush said.
