Страница 6164 - The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty, We have no selfish ends to serve.

Страница 6164 - I was for a little while unable to believe that such things would in fact be done by any government that had hitherto subscribed to the humane practices of civilized nations. International law had its origin in the attempt to set up some law which would be respected and observed upon the seas, where...
