quote of the day

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is relatively new in the American experience. . .In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
Dwight D. Eisenhower -- farewell address, January 17, 1961
