If the speaker is your President, it makes it a lot easier for you to trust the speaker. FDR knew that if the audience gained trust in him, that they would be able to listen to him and believe him now. Not only does FDR start out his speech laying out his credibility, but he ends it letting the audience know who 's in charge. Towards the end of his speech, FDR states "As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense."

The use of pathos is a speech is very persuasive especially when there has been a tragic event that has taken place. Pearl Harbor was a very tragic event in the history of the United States. “With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.”, Franklin Roosevelt use’s “we” in his speech to unite everyone together and show what he is on their side. This is a very power way of showing that you are trying to help and you are on there same side.
They comprehend the amount of damage Japan inflicted upon multiple territories and they comprehend that their enemy has enough power to kill thousands. Roosevelt goes on to reveal that “This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island,” (Roosevelt) proving that Japan shows no signs of stopping. Therefore, the audience speculates if any other part of the USA is in danger. !The president’s use of anaphora then an update of that morning’s attack go hand in hand to build Roosevelt’s factual, yet urgent tone.!

Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms). While the Imperial Navy’s Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, who was also known as the “chief architect of the attack on Pearl Harbor, stated that he believed it was impossible for Japan to win such a war but Japan had to gain the upper hand at the very beginning so that the United States just might be enticed to the negotiating table” (Timms). Hotta revealed her own interpretation by reviewing relevant published primary sources and the reasons why Japan decided to attack the Pearl Harbor. In addition, everyone talked about going to war such as the “Japan’s top brass referring to the prime minister, the foreign minister, the army and navy ministers, and the chiefs of the army and navy general staff”
Introduction: On December 7th, 1941, Japanese aircrafts bombarded the American fleets in a Pearl Harbor naval base, near Honolulu Hawaii. The attack on Pearl Harbor was a strategic scheme to take out the American fleets after the Nine-Power Treaty failed, due to Japan’s violation of it. The attack had devastating consequences and caused America and Japan to be at each other's throats. As a result, President Roosevelt declared war on Japan and unleashed two major bombings putting Japan to its knees and forcing them to sign a surrender document, later on, putting America and Japan at peace. In 1922, the Washington Naval Conference occurred in Washington DC.

Initiating his speech, Roosevelt utilizes logic to determine the attack was intended due to the distance. When examined the “Distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious” to clarify “The attack was deliberately planned.” Implying this in order to convince Congress that the attack was pre-arranged.
In Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, used figures of speech, metaphors and similes, and rhetorical questions to persuade his audience to agree with his views on the war and the conditions of America. Throughout his speech, Henry used figures of speech to engage his audience. One example of this is the phrase “Suffer not yourselves be betrayed with a kiss”, by this he meant that he hoped that his American comrades would not be fooled by the British and their false promises. These figures of speech, especially figurative language, were used to persuade the audience into turning against the British. Metaphors are another key aspect of Henry’s speech.
Hitler’s violent passion towards the executors of the assassination and the idea of revenge if very obvious in this speech. His passion towards his cause of leading Germany into being the dominant race in Europe is also very visible. Finally “Telos” is the purpose or conclusion of the speech, in this case it was to assure the Germans that he is alive and the plot failed.

America treaded the path towards World War II with trepidation, until its people were convinced that action must be taken when the incident of Pearl Harbor occurred. From that point on, American citizens began mobilizing to aid their nation in hopes for victory against the Axis Powers. In order to keep up morale certain measures, such as the use of false advertising, were imposed. The influence of American propaganda during World War II led to an exploration of government authority through the use of censorship, exploitation of women, and incentive to contribute to the war effort. Before the United States entered World War II, Americans had deemed isolationism to be the answer to European conflict.
Who was to blame for Pearl Harbor? “December 7, 1941, a date which 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 though absolute victory.” President Franklin D.

This attack on an American naval facility claimed a staggering 2,403 lives and wounded 1,178 others forcing the United States’ formal entrance into World War II. I was very fortunate to visit and participate in a South Washington County ISD 833 group band performance at this historic site, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. While visiting this monument, I learned about the significance of this International aggression on the American soil. This attack symbolized a threshold point for Americans from just offering support to the Europeans to becoming actively involved in the war.
They supplied Britain, Soviet Union and China with war materials and even deployed troops to Iceland, relieving Britain soldiers. However, the sanctions against Japan only outraged them leading to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Americans were entering the war by joining the RAF Squadron in Britain.

Thus, America joins World War Two. Although a tragic experience for most the bombing of Pearl Harbor was very important. The Bombing eliminated America’s isolationist ways. After the attack, America got this sense of patriotism that gave people the desire to fight japan. Others were so upset that they started making prejudices against Japanese-Americans.
