Crowd applauds. President Truman at base of Washington Monument. High Angle / HA of crowd below from top of monument during 175th Anniversary of Declaration of Independence ceremonies. 00:00:28 MS Truman speaking at microphones, SOF: Our constant aim in Korea has been peace, under the principles of the United Nations. Time & again, since the aggression started, we have proposed that the fighting be stopped & that peace be restored in accordance with those principles. Now, at last, the Communist leaders have offered to confer about an armistice. It may be that they have decided to give up their aggression in Korea. If that is true, the road to a peaceful settlement of the Korean conflict is open. (edit) 00:01:04 We cannot ignore the danger of military outbreaks in other parts of the world. The greatest threat to world peace, the tremendous armed power of the Soviet Union, will still remain even if the Korean fighting stops. The threat of Soviet aggression still hangs heavy over many a country - including our own. We must continue, therefore, to build up our military forces at a rapid rate. We must continue to help build up the defenses of other free nations. 00:01:48 This shrewd, this unscrupulous, this evil propaganda attack - we cannot overcome w/ military weapons. We cannot transfix a tie with a bayonet, or blast deceit w/ machine-gun fire. The only weapons against such enemies are truth and fair dealing.” Anti-Communism; Anniversary Celebration; 1950s; NOTE: GOOD sound & picture quality.
