“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 clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 to 1969)
34th president of the United States (1953–1961), who had been supreme commander of the Allied forces in western Europe during World War II.
