A script of an undelivered speech was found recently in the UK. In it the Queen Elizabeth II spoke of the rising tension between the United States and the USSR. She said that she feared that the cold war may leave her country devastated. This event took place exactly 30 years in the past. The queen was to tell her fellow citizens to remain steadfast and resolute in the face of total war. It was prepared by government officials yet never got aired in public.

The looming threat of World War 3 was the cause of a lot of fear and panic among Britons. It was a time in history when President Ronald Reagan disparagingly called the Soviet Union the “Evil Empire” thereby leading to a retaliatory reaction by the Soviet Premier.

The queen’s speech made it clear that war was a madness which was proliferating throughout the world once again. The year when she was supposed to address her nation was 1983, according to BBC News. She also spoke of how she and her sister huddled together in fear listening to their father George VI’s speech to Britons during WWII. She said she never thought she would have to do the same thing one day.

In a way the speech reminded one of Winston Churchill’s brave words in response to Adolph Hitler. Family values and giving, loving, caring and sharing were the precautions in time of war. The queen highlighted the fact that her son Prince Andrew was in the Royal Navy at the time.
