“The main point I use as an argument against nuclear weapons is that they are against international law. This argument is irrefutable. International law permits only weapons that can be aimed at a specific, limited target, so that no nonparticipants outside the scope of these weapons are affected. Even in atomic tests, radioactive fallout is dispersed over great distances, causing terrible ravages . . . It is incomprehensible that jurists should not have raised their voices as soon as atomic and hydrogen weapons appeared on the scene and pointed out that they were contrary to international law.”  — Dr. Albert Schweitzer
