2nd The Importance of the speech when it was given.... At the time Franklin D Roosevet gave this speech, the country had just been suprisingly attacked by the Japanese empire. The country understood that this meant the beginning of another world war but, what the Japanese had done was untolerable. The importance of the speech today... It is still important today because it is part of our history, the bombing at Pearl Harbor is the major reason the United Stated entered world war 2. People still talk about it because it was the speech that anounced to the country what Japan had done, and the actions the nation would have take. It ranked in the top 100 because it was a great inspirational speech. Rhetorical Analysis Alliteration: The repetition of last night.
Forshadowing: "but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us."
Climax: "the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace." http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/fdrpearlharbor.htm Your thoughts I believe that this speech has won its place in the top 100 best speeches because of its great use of language and the inspiration it provides. President Roosevelt makes it very clear to the entire nation of the actions the Japanese empire has taken and the damaged it has caused not only to our nation but to the rest of the world. Stateting the actions he himself has taken and the ones the country will take in order to prevent Japan from attacking any US territory, or any other piece of land even if that means going into world war 2. This speech has been and will be remembered for the rest of time, because it is part of the history of this great nation.
