On April 2, 1917 President Woodrow Wilson stated: “The world must be safe for democracy.” In four days the United States would enter World War I.
On December 8, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated: “Yesterday, December 7, 1941- a date which will live in infamy-the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” The United States had now entered World War II.
These events include the Assassination of the Arch Duke Ferdinand, the sinking of the luxury liner Lusitania, Hitler’s ambition to achieve power, the attack on Pearl Harbor, the dropping of the Atomic Bomb and much, much, more!
President Franklin Roosevelt’s words shall be unfolded before your eyes. Roosevelt stated:
No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory!
