Adlai Stevenson (Character)
from Thirteen Days (2000)
President Kennedy: [summarizing their options] So quarantine, or air strike?
Adlai Stevenson: [clears throat] There, uh, there is a third option. With either course we undertake the risk of nuclear war, so it seems to me that maybe one of us in this room should be a coward... so, I guess I'll be. A third course is to strike a deal: We trade Guantanamo and our missiles in Turkey; get them to pull their missiles out. We employ a back channel; we attribute the idea to U Thant. U Thant then raises it at the UN.
President Kennedy: I don't think that's possible, Adlai.
