eisenhower on weapons and the least of these

"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 is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under a cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

-Dwight D. Eisenhower, US President
