“Pres. Ike Eisenhower’s Warning of M/I/M Complex”

PRESIDENT “IKE” EISENHOWER WARNED of a NEW MILITARY

INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX which glorifies Weapons and Foreign

Wars, more than National Peace and Prosperity.  Ike’s the Hero

of WWII Normandy Invasion.  The Costs of a Permanent War

Economy.  “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. The Cost of one modern

heavy Bomber is this: a modern brick School in more than 30

cities. It is two Electric  Power plants, each serving a town of

60,000 Population. We pay for a single Fighter with a half-

million bushels of Wheat.  We pay for a single Destroyer with

new Homes that could have Housed more than 8,000 People.

This is not a Way of Life at all, in any true sense. Under the

(permanent) Cloud of Threatening War, it is Humanity hanging

from a Cross of Iron.”  (Often referred to as Ike’s “Cross of Iron”

speech, The Cross of Iron was a Nazi World War II Award)
