Mr. Stalin, we did not award Italo Babo the Distinguished Flying Cross based on a membership in a fascist government. We awarded Mr. Babo this award based on his services to aviation. If the Soviet Union has any pilots that we deem worthy of such an award, we would confer that award on them too.

Franklin Roosevelt, speaking in Philadelphia

Frankly, Governor, half your proposals are Communist in nature, and the other half are fascist in nature.

We are a Republic. For us to do what you are suggesting would defy the characteristics of the Republican form of our Government, and lead to a fascist dictatorship, not unlike what Mr. Mussolini has in Italy.

Shame on you.

We reiterate the United States's neutrality in the current conflict between Hungary, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia at this time.

We also wish to offer the United States as a neutral venue for any peace negotiations that may take place, and encourage all parties to seek a negotiated solution.

Secretary of War George Dern responds to the Soviet Union at West Point

Need we remind the Soviets that our Senate never ratified the Treaty of Versailles. Technically we already disavowed it, when the Senate refused to ratify it in 1919.

If we wanted to call up a million troops, send them across the Atlantic and North Sea, and land them in Germany, we could, because our Senate never agreed to Versailles, and in my opinion, we should have sided with Clemenceau and been harsher on Germany than Versailles was in the first place!

So, no we don't feel bound by Versailles at all. What we are bound by, is the fact that we are an ocean away, in the middle of an economic depression, unable to intervene without causing great harm to ourselves. If America could step in and break this conflict up, rest assured we would.

Roosevelt responds to Secretary of War Dern's comments, Baltimore, Maryland

Secretary Dern made a pretty huge mistake in his speech last month at West Point. He said we could land troops in Germany right now. Germany is not currently a power that is at war with anyone, and as such, we will be doing no such thing. As such, I have requested Secretary Dern's resignation from office.

Should Dern agree to resign, I have offered to appoint aviator Charles Lindbergh as Secretary of War in his place, and that nomination will be submitted to the Senate.

The United States government reiterates their willingness to host armistice and peace negotiations here in the United States.

At this time, we are introducing formal economic sanctions on all items of war, all fuel, and U.S made goods and services to Romania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Yugoslavia, as well as freezing the bank accounts of all nationals of the aforementioned individuals in the United States.

All Ambassadors to these countries have been recalled at the present time, and diplomatic relations with all of the belligerent parties will be severed until a peace deal is reached.

Has Mister Stalin ever heard of the concept of making a mistake? We made an error in providing an aid package to Yugoslavia, and by introducing sanctions, we intend to fix the mistake we made.

Your meddling is only going to make the war worse, not better.
