"Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duty, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour."
Winston Churchill(London, England, June 18, 1940)
"Soldiers, sailors, and airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon the great crusade toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you!"
Dwight D. Eisenhower(Britain, June 5, 1944)
"I have just completed a meeting with my national security team, and we have received the latest intelligence updates. The deliberate and deadly attacks which were carried out yesterday against our country were more than acts of terror. They were acts of war. This will require our country to unite in steadfast determination and resolve. Freedom and democracy are under attack." President Bush(9/12/01)
Another great one is General MacArthur's speech to the Philipinos on the occasion of the US invasion of Luzon...have no idea where to find it, however.

John F. Kennedy's inauguration speech January 20th, 1961:
[T]he same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe -- the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
[T]to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, ... We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.
In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility -- I welcome it.
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
I know. But what can you do? Refusing to listen to RA format stuff? That won't work. Fortunately, Windows Media Player is its equivalent, and is gaining ground.
One thing's for sure, however: I will never be insured by Progressive Auto Insurance.
Both Neville Chamberlain's speech announcing a treaty signed by Hitler and his subsequent declaration of war on Germany are on that site.
Hee-Hee! How ya doin', Alan? Only you and me know who 'L.N. Smithee' actually is!
