The nation in arms
Speech by Franklin K. Lane, U.S. Secretary of the Interior. "We are fighting Germany because she sought to terrorize us and then to fool us... Germany has never asked forgiveness of the world [for sinking the Lusitania]...Belgian starving ...piteous cries of children...friendly, harmless, terrorized people."
