"The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government."
"I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a method of settling international disputes."
General Douglas MacArthur
"The military don't start wars. Politicians start wars."
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
Dwight D. Eisenhower
"The most successful war seldom pays for its losses."
— Thomas Jefferson
