Ethos, Pathos, Logos
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and distinguished members of Congress:
The communist threat is a global one!
Mustering half of the world's population, and 60% of its natural resources these people are rapidly consolidating a new force.
Macarthur starts his speech by addressing the president, speaker of the house, and congress members. This immediately establishes his credibility by showing that the crowd he is addressing has a lot of power, thus making him influential.
Macarthur appeals to emotion by referencing communism. During this era, the American fear and threat of communism was very high. By referencing communism, Macarthur hopes to scare his audience, Congress, into continuing to fund rebuilding Europe democratically after WWII and containing communism.
Macarthur gives statistics about the population and resources in Asia to show how rapidly growing the area is. By giving these stats, he hopes Congress will convince Congress to continue war efforts in Korea and Vietnam.
