What goes around… comes around.

A clever wrap-around poster for the Global Coalition for Peace bearing a profound message… And, a timeless (also ironic) quotation by the USA’s 34th president (NATO’s first supreme commander) expressed exactly 50 years before the ill-informed and wrong-headed 2003 invasion of Iraq:

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. 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… under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Dwight D. Eisenhower, 16 April 1953
