Quote of the day
Dwight D. Eisenhower, official Presidential portrait.jpg  
All of us have heard this term "preventative war" since the earliest days of Hitler. I recall that is about the first time I heard it. In this day and time … I don't believe there is such a thing; and, frankly, I wouldn't even listen to anyone seriously that came in and talked about such a thing.
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower ~
