His grim warnings about the future of the world, his aide memoire on Berlin, his subsequent speeches & threats which he & his agents have launched, & the increase in the Soviet military budget that he has announced have all prompted a series of decisions by the Administration & a series of consultations w/ the members of the NATO organization. (edited out until...) 07:26:27 The immediate threat to free men is in West Berlin. But that isolated outpost is not an isolated problem. The threat is worldwide. Our effort must be equally wide & strong, & not be obsessed by any single manufactured crisis. We face a challenge in Berlin, but there is also a challenge in Southeast Asia, where the borders are less guarded, the enemy harder to find, & the dangers of communism less apparent to those who have so little. We face a challenge in our hemisphere, and indeed wherever else the freedom of human beings is at stake. (edited out until...) 07:27:16 The world is not deceived by the Communist attempt to label Berlin as a hot-bed of war. There is peace in Berlin today. The source of world trouble & tension is Moscow, not Berlin. And if war begins, it will have begun in Moscow & not Berlin. For the choice of peace or war is largely theirs, not ours....
