Abstract:

Kennedy jokes about the retirement of baseball player Ted Williams; apparently he was too old at age 42. Kennedy goes on to discuss the experience of the U.S. during the last 12 months. He points to the irony of Khrushchev being confined to Manhattan Island during his U.S. visit, when only a year ago the Soviet leader had been invited to Camp David. The U.S. has changed its tactics for dealing with Khrushchev, but Khrushchev's objectives, views, and tactics remain the same; he represents the same Communist system, still dedicated to achieving world domination. Khrushchev is not the enemy however; rather, the enemy is the Communist system itself. It is not enough for the U.S. to stand up to Khrushchev in a debate; the U.S. must summon the strength of the free world to advance the cause of peace. Instead of reacting to each new crisis, the U.S. must focus on its own objectives, and use its own great political and economic assets to advance freedom throughout the world.
