Air Force One (1997)
Russian President Petrov: Today we are honoring this brave man. Ladies and gentlemen, my friend, the President of the United States of America.
President James Marshall: IN RUSSIAN. The dead remember our indifference. The dead remember our silence.
President James Marshall: I came here tonight to be congratulated, but today when I visited the Red Cross camps, overwhelmed by the flood of refugees fleeing from the horror of Kazakhstan, I realized I don't deserve to be congratulated. None of us do.
National Security Advisor Jack Doherty: What's he doing?
Chief of Staff Lloyd Shepherd: That's not the speech.
President James Marshall: Let's speak the truth. And the truth is, we acted too late. Only when our own national security was threatened did we act. Radek's regime murdered over 200,000 men, women, and children, and we watched it on TV. We let it happen. People were being slaughtered for over a year and we issued economic sanctions and hid behind the rhetoric of diplomacy. How dare we? The dead remember. Real peace is not just the absence of conflict, it's the presence of justice. And tonight I come to you with a pledge to change America's policy. Never again will I allow our political self-interest to deter us from doing what we know to be morally right. Atrocity and terror are not political weapons and to those who would use them: your day is over. We will never negotiate. We will no longer tolerate, and we will no longer be afraid. It's your turn to be afraid.
