John Kerry, accepting the Democratic nomination as candidate for the US Presidency
"I was mayor of Cleveland, and I have seen weapons of mass destruction----in our cities. Poverty is a weapon of mass destruction. Joblessness is a weapon of mass destruction, homelessness is a weapon of mass destruction, racism is a weapon of mass destruction. We must disarm these weapons and we must turn the military budget into books, schools, teachers, housing, health care, job creation and stronger neighborhoods."
Dennis Kucinich, former presidential candidate, at the Democratic Convention
