Excerpt: Thank you very much for your generous words, and for the opportunity to talk about the dramatic changes in the world today. We’ve just seen the effects of some of those changes over the weekend. U.S. forces were involved with the forces of other nations in a United Nations military operation in Somalia Over the weekend, that United Nations force had to resort to military action to protect the hard-won humanitarian gains and restore order in Somalia’s capital. U.S. forces took part. As President Clinton said, if U.N. peacekeepers are to be effective agents for peace and stability in Somalia and elsewhere, they must be capable of using force when necessary. As for our own forces, from Operation Desert Storm to Somalia, the U.S. military has proved itself the most capable in the world, and it has proved itself adaptable to the new world. Adapting to the new world is something I’d like to talk about tonight. It’s a brand-new world. Many things have changed. We also see those changes affecting the security of Israel. Let’s step back and assess the new forces in the world that affect it. First of all, in the way we have traditionally viewed security matters-s-and I emphasize the word “traditionally”-you could say that Israel has never been safer. Let me list the reasons why I say that.
