Heed thy Cassandra

Eisenhower famously warned the public (in his farewell speech) about the major problems that the world could face as a result of the military industry. Watch the documentary 'Why we fight' to know more about that. According to that documentary, Eisenhower would often say in private that only god can save the world if a person who does not know enough about the military like him becomes the american president. I think, his prophecy has gone the way of Cassandra. He acted as the worlds' Cassandra and his prophecy has been ignored as is evidenced by the multi billion dollar war industry.
