> the billions of dollars.
> In 1984, the first Minneapolis-St Paul combat ship was commissioned and there

> Indian God of Peace (which it was called then)) decrying the name of a 
> warship after our cities.  
> I hope Rep. McCollum and any others who are asked to speak approving a war

> “Every gun that is made, 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.  This world in arms is not spending money 
> alone.  It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its 
> scientists, and the hopes of its children.”
> Thank you,
