It was Franz Josephs' mistake
that caused the ''Great War''
to begin, not Germany's.
Later, it would be another
Austrian who caused the next
great war.
World War II.

Secretary of War Newton Baker
Secretary of War Newton Baker talks about the importance of
League of Nations and how it could have saved us from
war (not many were listening then!). The League of Nations
later became the
United Nations that was to save us from
future wars (not many were, or are, listening now).
Politics, graft and mediocrity prevail instead of strength.

Lili Marlene (1939) original in German

My mother, wearing  a ''WARDENS'' armband, was
responsible, after German bombing raids on London
during ''The Blitz'', to gather body parts from the street
and overhead wires where they lay in the rubble or
hang, apart from their owners body. My mother was
terrified, but like the rest of England...fought on!
They had no choice.

Winston Churchill
A small portion of
Sir Winston Churchill's
1940 speech
CBS News Bulletin - Dec. 7th, 1941
Winston Churchill was one of the greatest
statesmans and fighters of World War II.
Sir Winston Churchill had it right!
FDR was a great President, make no mistake
about that.  However,  FDR and his party
made many mistakes regarding war!
Joseph Stalin understood the weaknesses
of Democratic rule and took full advantage of
the Democrats mistakes and incapacity to
understand and wage warfare.
Unfortunately, America forgets how to fight a
war...every time.
I worry about my America
because of people who have
OTHER political agenda's.

The Cuban Missile Crisis speech
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!
Penkovski, a Soviet Intelligence Agent (also an agent for the
Americans and the British) informed President Kennedy and
others about Soviet intentions. Without this intelligence,
President Kennedy would not have been as ''decisive''
during this time as history remembers!
Bobby Kennedy, the brother of JFK, might have made a
better leader for the future of America.
We'll never know!
