Anzac Day 2012

"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 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 threatening
 war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

Dwight D. Eisenhower, From a speech before the
American Society of Newspaper Editors, April 16, 1953
