Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” Speech

On March 5, 1945, Winston Churchill addressed Westminster College in Missouri and warned the United States and the other western nation that “an iron curtain has descended across the Continent.”

Part of his speech has special significance for us today:

“Our difficulties and dangers will not be removed by closing our eyes to them.”  “They will not be removed by mere waiting to see what happens; nor will they be removed by a policy of appeasement. What is needed is a settlement, and the longer this is delayed, the more difficult it will be and the greater our dangers will become.”
