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 hopes of its children.
This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.
Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross
Dwight Eisenhower, April 16, 1953
