|It was Franz Josephs' mistake

the League of Nations and how it could have saved us from
war (not many were listening then!). The League of Nations

|JFK is an American Hero and I dare anyone to prove
otherwise to me.
On the first day of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Russian Colonel
Oleg Penkovski was arrested and later tried(?) for
supporting Western values and he paid with his life!

better leader for the future of America.
