When I addressed the Congress on the 26th of February last, I thought that it would suffice to assert our neutral rights with arms, our right to use the seas against unlawful interference, our right to keep our people safe against unlawful violence. It is common prudence in such circumstances, grim necessity indeed, to endeavor to destroy them before they have shown their own intention. The intimation is conveyed that the armed guards which we have placed on our merchant ships will be treated as beyond the pale of law and subject to be dealt with as pirates would be.

    Armed neutrality is ineffectual enough at best; in such circumstances and in the face of such pretensions it is worse than ineffectual: it is likely only to produce what it was meant to prevent; it is practically certain to draw us into the war without either the rights or the effectiveness of belligerents. The wrongs against which we now array ourselves are no common wrongs; they cut to the very roots of human life. Which sentences in this excerpt from President Woodrow Wilson's speech "War Message" argue that offense is the best defense for America in the face of German aggression?
