A quote from President John Fitzgerald Kennedy calming the

American people while missiles were pointed directly at the United States.


"The United States, as the world knows, will
never start a war. We do not
want a war. We do not now expect a war. This
generation of Americans has
already had enough - more than enough - of war
and hate and oppression. We
shall be prepared if others wish it. We shall be
alert to try to stop it. But
we shall also do our part to build a world of
peace where the weak are safe
and the strong are just. We are not helpless
before that task or hopeless of
its success. Confident and unafraid, we labor on
- not toward a strategy of
annihilation but toward a strategy of peace."


John F. Kennedy 



Quote from George W. Bush explaining why he must attack Iraq with no missiles pointed at us.


"I look forward to the American people understanding the threats we face.''

George W. Bush  September 2002
