Here is another great speech from President Dwight D. Eisenhower. ‘If you don’t learn from history, you are destined to repeat the mistakes of the past’ (or something to that effect). I don’t know how many times I have heard that repeated lately. It seems Bush and his administration have learned nothing, as we continue to make mistake after mistake on this super-highway to disaster.
So, here is another fine speech from ‘Ike’ that could just as easily be given today to remind us as a nation who we are, what our goals and responsibilities as a free nation should be, and what we should strive for as part of the world community. He reminds us that we as a country should labor for peace. He very aptly describes what the cost of investing so heavily in armaments really means in human terms.
