President George HW Bush Announces the Gulf War and “the Opportunity to Forge for Ourselves and Future Generations, a New World Order”

President George Herbert Walker Bush speaking from the Oval Office on Jan. 16, 1991, spoke about the “new world order” in his speech announcing the start of the Gulf War.

“We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations, a new world order, a world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this new world order. An order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.”
