Steve McMurry’s photo’s and Obama’s wars

Every gun that is fired, 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.

The 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.  — Dwight D. Eisenhower

I found this quote on the site of  Steve McCurry. Steve McMurry is the photographer of the famous Afghanistan girl that made it to the front of the Nation Geographic magazine and my blog had been linked to it through the random blog link facility.

Have a look.

His photo’s are awesome and with the news that “Mr. Change” Obama has committed more troops to Afghanistan, extended the war in Pakistan and the US congress has just signed away $ 880 billion more to be wasted on their misbegotten wars the quote makes a chilling point.
