UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- President Bush has taken his anti-terror crusade to the United Nations.
It was a key element of his eighth and final speech to the U.N. General Assembly today.
Although he once expressed disdain for the U.N., Bush now says multinational organizations are "needed more urgently than ever" to combat terrorists and extremists who are threatening world order.
He called on the international community to stand firm against the nuclear ambitions of North Korea and Iran. He said U.N. members must unite to help Iraq's struggling democracy succeed. And he scolded Russia for invading neighboring Georgia, calling it a violation of the U.N. charter.
