Unconditional war can no longer lead to unconditional victory. It can no longer serve to settle disputes. It can no longer be of concern to great powers alone. For a nuclear disaster, spread by winds and waters and fear, could well engulf the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the committed and the uncommitted alike. Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.

Безусловная война больше не может привести к безусловной победе. он больше не может служить для разрешения споров. это больше не может беспокоить только великих держав. Ибо ядерная катастрофа, распространяемая ветрами, водами и страхом, вполне может поглотить как великих, так и малых, богатых и бедных, как преданных, так и несвязанных. человечество должно положить конец войне, иначе война положит конец человечеству.
