I read this quote in some quote dictionary a few years ago (I was so bored, I just sat around and read it!) but I can't remember who said it. It was along the lines of "If this war is faught with nuclear weapons, the next one will be faucht with bows and arrows." Anybody know who said that?

I've seen it attributed to Einstein: but then what isn't?

Here is a link to a Mountbatten quote which seems reasonably reliable.

For anyone who knows the PC game "Operation Flashpoint", when you are killed in the game,
you get a famous quote relating to war. They attribute this quote to Einstein. Then again there are also some other good quotes like:

"War is not nice" Barbara Bush
