President Bush to be more mindful, tone down tough talk

BBC NEWS | Americas | Bush says regrets talking tough (link opens in a new window): "US President George W Bush has pledged to be more diplomatic in future, saying he realises that talking tough can sometimes send 'wrong impressions'.


'I speak plainly sometimes, but you've got to be mindful of the consequences.'*

In what has become a notorious occasion, Mr Bush words sparked outrage in July 2003 when he appeared to directly challenge insurgents fighting in Iraq."
