John F. Kennedy’s purpose of this excerpt is to clarify the government’s stance on nations posing a threat to peace.  We can determine the purpose of the excerpt by looking at the topic of the each paragraph.  It is important to note that Kennedy employs the literary device of repetition as we can see with in the first words of sentences is the repetitive use of “let both sides.”  The specific type of repetition here is known as anaphora, which is the repetition of a word (or in this case words) at the beginning of line/verse/sentence.  That said, repetition is quite the effective literary device when the desired effect is to emphasize in order to highlight importance.  And, what is being stressed when looking at the topics of each paragraph is the cumulative theme of the United States government’s stance on nations posing a threat to peace.
