"[O]ur own government, through much of the past fifty years, has been the world's leading ‘rogue state.' Merely listing the plainly illegal or unauthorized uses of force... would literally take volumes. And behind that list reside the bodies of literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of innocents, most of them children, whose lives we have taken without any pretense to justice."  Joel Rogers, The Nation, September 18, 2001.

"...the unrestrained pursuit of their star Wars scheme for outer space -- which would open another trip wire for nuclear war... We must reject the preposterous notion of a Lone Ranger in the sky, firing silver laser bullets and shooting missiles out of the hands of Soviet outlaws.  The best defense against nuclear war is arms control and then disarmament."  Ted Kennedy, 1983.
