I want to talk to you tonight about that situation, and about what it means to the security of the United States and to our hopes for peace in the world.

Tonight I want to talk to you on a subject of deep concern to all Americans and to many people in all parts of the world--the war in Vietnam.

The fact that Communist forces have invaded Korea is a warning that there may be similar acts of aggression in other parts of the world. This is a direct challenge to the efforts of the free nations to build the kind of world in which men can live in freedom and peace..
