JFK vs. Caesar
"As early as 1961, they knew Kennedy was not going to go to war in South-East Asia. Like Caesar, he is surrounded by enemies, and something's underway, but it has no face, yet everybody in the loop knows," (JFK). This is a famous quote from Oliver Stone's 1991 film, JFK, which makes a relevant comparison between the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar, the dictator, was killed on March 15, 44BCE in the spring, but JFK, the president, was killed on November 22, 1963 in the fall. Caesar was from Rome, while JFK was from Brookline, Massachusetts. During the reign or rise to power of both rulers, their country was in a political climate of crisis. Although the overall idea of the assassinations is quite similar, all the details make them greatly different. Some of the factors which make the assassinations different are the murder methods, the assassin's relationship with the victim, and their motives. In terms of how each ruler was killed, the weapon is not the only difference.
