USA: Washington DC:
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
- I am a pacifist, you my fellow citizens are pacifists too / but I believe that by overwhelming majority in all the Americas, you and I in the long run can if it be necessary, you and I will act together to protect, to defend, by every means at our command, to protect and defend our science, our culture, our American freedom and our civilisation
