On this day that will live in infamy
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.
I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.
Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.
With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.

Rally, rally, rally! Wait, we aleady won that war. Lately methinks you've been wishing you had a time machine and were living in 1941. I know you would respond with something like "this is a different time and a different kind of war, but it's all for the same cause and is just as important."
But I've come to the decision that any war that can't be won militarily, on the battlefield, soldier versus soldier and general versus general, isn't a war that is in Amerca's interest to win.
If torture and the lifting of habeas corpus from your citizens and widespread domestic spying and all of that bash-the-UN-crap is needed, that means something is very wrong at the root of your cause.
I have to admit to myself that even I wish we lived in better times - times like 1941 even. I mean, we took some big punches that year, but our grandfathers stepped it up big in pursuit of a noble cause. But, here we are. And don't get me wrong - we live in interesting times. It's the most interesting time in the history of human beings I'm sure. So I'm not bored, at least.

Great speech. Shocking that it's been 60+ years since.
