He may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but Dwight D. Eisenhower was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order. Upon departing his presidency, Eisenhower issued a stern, cogent warning about the burgeoning "military industrial complex," foretelling with ominous clarity the state of the world in 2004 with its incestuous entanglement of political, corporate, and Defense Department interests.
It is nowhere written that the American empire goes on forever.

Did You Know?
I remember when in the Pacific the word spread that the bombs had been dropped, 99.9% of us were delighted, because we had been convinced that, if Japan was not hit by nuclear weapons, a million of us would be killed. Drop those bombs and they will surrender. But they were trying to surrender all that summer. But Truman wouldn't listen; he wanted to drop the bombs. To show off. To frighten Stalin. To change the balance of power in the world. To declare war on Communism.
