The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life.
                                --John F. Kennedy

It is time - well past time, in my view - for the United States to cease its
Cold War-style reliance on nuclear weapons as a foreign-policy tool. At the risk of appearing simplistic and provocative, I would characterize current US nuclear weapons policy as immoral, illegal, militarily unnecessary, and dreadfully dangerous. The risk of an accidental or inadvertent nuclear launch is unacceptably high.

Robert S. McNamara, Foreign Policy, ”Apocalypse Soon,” May/June 2005
We, military professionals, who have devoted our lives to the national
security of our countries and our peoples, are convinced that the continuing existence of nuclear weapons in the armories of nuclear powers, and the ever present threat of acquisition of these weapons by others, constitute a peril to global peace and security and to the safety and survival of the people we are dedicated to protect.
Statement by Generals and Admirals of the World Against Nuclear Weapons, December 5,1996 (58)
If men can develop weapons that are so terrifying as to make the thought of
global war include almost a sentence for suicide, you would think that man's
intelligence and his comprehension... would include also his ability to find a
peaceful solution.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
