Douglas MacArthur on War

“I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes.”

— General Douglas MacArthur, Farewell Address to Congress, 19 April 1951
