    Franklin D.Roosevelt (US President) speech SOT
    - We fear that other Continents might become so involved in war, wars brought on by the school of destruction not construction, that the Americas might have to become the guardians of Western culture, the protector of Christian civilisation
    - In those days not so long ago it was merely a fear, today the fear has become a fact
