Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the houses of its children.
This is not a way of life....Under the cloud of war, it is humanity hanging itself on a cross of iron.
--Dwight Eisenhower - General, 34th President of the Unitied States, April 16, 1953
