Additionally, the conference was the first time the allies would demand the unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan. The Casablanca conference was a very philosophical and open debate on the allied war strategy. It was the most important conference because it formalized the strategy and concepts with which the allies would achieve
Roosevelt’s short opening sentence is also relatively vague, as he avoids mentioning specific details about the attack. This ambiguity leaves a lot of room for imagination, and many will automatically assume the worst case scenario, which strengthens the chaos that Roosevelt implies with his diction. Roosevelt continues to use this direct tone throughout the speech when he says, “It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago.” This portion is structured similarly to a data analysis, as he presents a fact and forms a conclusion by analyzing the data. The exception is, Roosevelt neglects to mention his analysis. He agains clips his sentences by leaving out specific information, and there is no time given to question him.
While giving the speech, Henry “stood in the vanguard of those calling for united action by all the colonies against British "tyranny"” (Foner & Garraty, 1991, n.p.). He was so unhappy with the actions taken by the king that he had very harsh things to say. In the middle of the speech, he told the listeners, “suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss” (Shakespeare, 1996, pp. 116).
Final Essay Throughout his inaugural address, John Fitzgerald Kennedy uses juxtaposition, anaphora, and emotional appeals (pathos) to rally the american public against nations of the world with different ideologies, namely Communism. With a leader as charismatic as Kennedy, it is inevitable that a speech of his would utilize classic rhetorical devices to further his purpose as he sets the stage for his presidency. Kennedy’s use of antithesis through juxtaposition creates the illusion that you are either apart of his ideas or against them. Kennedy tells Americans to “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country,” which would imply that if you are not a loyal patriot giving for the United States, than you are the problem. Chiasmus, the technical name for Kennedy’s literary device in the previous example, is often used to create the sense of opposition that is present throughout his address.
“December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy-” is when Pearl Harbor was suddenly and intentionally attacked by “naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” President Franklin Roosevelt in his speech asserts that the attack on Pearl Harbor is a justified reason for the United States to go to war, because of the damage and tragedy done to the nation. He supports this claim by, first using situational irony and diction appealing to logos, then anaphora appealing to pathos, finally authority appealing to ethos. President Roosevelt’s purpose is to persuade Congress in order to convince them into allowing the United States to enter the war. President Roosevelt begins his speech to the American people and Congress by recalling the events
The Best use of Rhetoric The Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation and the Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage are both great examples of ethos, pathos, and logos. They are both political messages created to not only rely on facts but to strike emotion in the hearts of the audience, whoever they may be. In the Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation speech given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on December 8, 1941, in response to one of the most tragic days in U.S. history, to help rally the people of the United States of America to the realization of war between the Japanese and American forces. The Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage was given by Carrie Chapman Catt to spark a revolt and spur up emotion of great pride in women of all nature to take a stand fight for what is right. Both these speeches use of rhetoric leave both as some of the best but the speech given by Franklin D. Roosevelt was by far more vivid.
Would there be an America if people were not able to persuade others? During a time when America is in a war against the British fighting for its independence and had lost every battle except for one during the first year of the war, fearing that the idea of America may fail. Thomas Paine then publishes a pamphlet called The Crisis, No. 1. Regarding this, pathos was the most persuasive technique used to persuade Americans to continue on with the war in Thomas Paine’s The Crisis, No.
JFK Rhetorical Analysis Essay Although John F. Kennedy begins his infamous inaugural speech by explaining his welcoming as president as being a celebration of freedom, he transforms it into a call for global unity, reaching not only the citizens of the United States, but of the world, which inspired American Citizens. By contemplating the problems restricting global unity, Kennedy addresses solutions to fix them, and how his proposed plan would not be completed within his term, but something to be worked for until it is achieved. During the time period in which Kennedy delivered his speech the country was in the midst of the Cold War with Russia. The American people needed a leader, and he was there to deliver. In the opening
The first major theme in Tojo’s speech is Imperial Japan’s desire for an unconditional Allied surrender. Tojo makes these desires extremely clear in his speech. For example, Tojo declares that “[Imperial Japanese forces] will never cease fighting until the enemy is crushed,” whilst also stating that Imperial Japanese forces should unite to “eradicate and destroy American and British power,” in the Pacific. Tojo’s words betray his desire to see Allied forces in the Pacific to be completely crushed and subjugated. These statements are extremely relevant in understanding Imperial Japan’s relationship with the concept of Total War.
After the attack China declared war on Japan on December 9,1942. Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted the United States to be apart of this so he asked Congress to announce war against Japan to the American people. Eventually, Germany,Italy,Bulgaria,Hungary, and Romania issued war on the U.S. Because so many countries were involved this was the start of WW11. But because we lost so much oil and rubber, it would be a challenge for America to stand a chance against all of our opponents. Even then we were still picking up memories of Pearl Harbor a year later.
America could not have stopped Japan (source F). The fact the American president reiterates the point that the attack was a surprise, emphasizes the argument that Japan was definitely acting as the aggressor. One needs to keep in mind that this source is extremely biased and provides insight regarding American attitude.

"It appeals to the emotion of the thought on being a slave. Inspiring people to be free rather than being under British control. Another example is when he says, "It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope," Explaining that sense of peace feeling we want to have. By appealing to the audiences emotions he made them quick to remember everything in the past they went through with Britain. Finally the last appeal Patrick Henry uses is logos appeal to thinking and the audience’s logic.
Marsha law was made to protect the people in time of war when there was no time to wait on politics. Furthermore, that is what President FDR did. One sentence from the president, with good reason, could change everything for Americans. All of this lead to the New York Times article “A Discredited Supreme Court Ruling that still Technically Stands.” This article talks about how the Court was able to pass this law
Following the attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor in December 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered a speech to the congress about the previous events and what would happen next. In both, his draft and official transcript, Roosevelt addresses what he knew and the measures the United States and others would take thereafter. Ultimately, this speech that was given would convince congress to declare war on Japan starting World War II. Both of the papers show the account of how the invasion in Hawaii was planned in advance and how the United States will do anything to defend themselves; although, only the final draft mentioned that the Japanese forces also attacked Hong Kong, Guam, and multiple islands. The added details from
