JFK Quotes You Probably Haven't Heard.

.... a warning to the American people not to fall into the same trap as the Soviets, not to see only a distorted and desperate view of the other side, not to see conflict as inevitable, accommodation as impossible and communication as nothing more than an exchange of threats.
Commencement Address American University, Washington, Monday, June 10, 1963

JFK also called for global disarmament. He was not popular with US elites and those with a pro-military/pro-war bent. Things would be a lot different if he had survived into a second term. There are some interesting quotes provided in the link above- quite relevant to today's mess in which we find ourselves.
