Comment Dated Feb 16, 2007


"Every gun that is made, every warship that is 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 cloud of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

-- Dwight Eisenhower, 1953

"Peace hath higher tests of manhood than battle ever knew."

--John Greenleaf Whittier
