"We are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom,"
"We will direct every resource at our command — every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence and every necessary weapon of war — to the disruption and defeat of the global terror network," Bush said.
To other countries: "Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists."
Bush said in an advance text of the 9 p.m. (0100 GMT on Friday) speech to be given to a joint session of Congress.
The U.S. launched what it originally called "Operation Infinite Justice" to move military equipment and personnel into place should military action be needed to roust the Saudi-born bin Laden. The government said it would put up to 500 U.S. warplanes within striking distance of Afghanistan and ordered U.S. Army units to deploy for possible operations.
Al-Faisal, representing a nation crucial to any U.S. drive for Arab support, said the focus should be on justice. "We can't fight terrorism by being vengeful," the minister said.
After meeting with Bush, he said, "We're still hopeful that Taliban will accept the wisdom of handing over criminals to face justice."
