President Bush says Iraq is now ``The Central Front'' in the War on Terror.
He says he'll ``do whatever is necessary'' and ``spend what is necessary'' to achieve a victory there.
He says that is ``essential.''
Those are among excerpts of the President's speech to the nation that the White House has released ahead of time.
In tonight's broadcast address (at 7:30 p.m), Bush is also prepared to call for the United Nations to assume a ``broader role'' in assuring Iraq becomes free and Democratic.
According to the excerpts, Bush says there's a reason terrorists are helping mount attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq.
He says, ``they want to shake the will of the civilized world.''
