Dwight David Eisenhower (18901969)
I say when you get into a war, you should win as quick as you can, because your losses become a function of the duration of the war. I believe when you get in a war, get everything you need and win it.
DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, news conference, Indio, California, March 15, 1968, as reported in The New York Times, March 16, 1968, p. 15.
