"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron." [ Dwight Eisenhower ]

"History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap." [ Ronald Reagan ]

"Naturally, the common people don't want war ... but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country." [Hermann Goering]

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." [ Benjamin Franklin ]

"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution." [James Madison]

"War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength." [Big Brother]

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." [ Theodore Roosevelt ]

Wise war quotes...

Issac Asimov
Violence is the first refuge of the incompetent

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism

Some pro war quotes???...

George Patton
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Douglas MacArthur
It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.

"The power of the executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgement of his peers [that is, trial by jury], is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or communist."

Sir Winston Churchill
