We are in the era of the thermonuclear bomb
that can obliterate cities and can be delivered across continents.
With such weapons, war has become, not just tragic, but preposterous.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
August 23, 1956
«In the thermonuclear age, any misjudgment on either side about the intentions of the other
could rain more devastation in several hours than has been wrought in all the wars of humanity.
John F. Kennedy
July 25, 1961
It is my fervent goal and hope… that we will some day no longer have to rely on nuclear weapons to deter aggression and assure world peace.
To that end the United States is now engaged in a serious and sustained effort to negotiate major reductions in levels of offensive nuclear weapons
with the ultimate goal of eliminating these weapons from the face of the earth.
October 20, 1986
I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
