Sweat saves blood.
But, can sweat stop a bullet?
All war is deception.
So is global warming, but just look at the hullabaloo it has caused. More than one war has been fought by the deceived.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Sounds like the collectivist motto that the supreme art of working is to create something without doing anything; of course, it has gone far to create a bunch of porky couch potatoes; you might call them the "fog of boar".
Only the dead have seen the end of the war.
I see dead people...and they are fighting over potato chips and who owns the remote control for the idiot box.
A visitor from Mars could easily pick out the civilized nations. They have the best implements of war.
Herbert V. Prochnow
Yes, but can a microbe on a meteorite assist that nation in cultivating civility in the rest of the world? I'd say that like the socialist, all the microbe can do is promulgate and infect and ultimately lead to the downfall of civility.
I have never advocated war except as a means of peace.
Ulysses S. Grant
A piece of Georgia, a piece of Bamie, and a piece of Tennessee.
What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.
Robert E. Lee
Alternately we can take a passive approach...just sit on our haunches and let the barbarians (and other assorted enemas) burn a path from New York to San Diego, rather than simply a paltry 50-mile swath through the Southland. Cruel, yes. Necessary? Depends entirely on how much you actually care about things like joy, happiness, your personal God and whether you consider Columbia, Atlanta and Savannah "fair faces" in this "beautiful world".
To walk through the ruined cities of Germany is to feel an actual doubt about the continuity of civilization.
I wonder if he saw what was wrought on Columbia by the blue-blood, socialist hoard?
War is a series of catastrophes which result in victory.
And to the victor belongs the catastrophes that are the spoils of the achieved "peace".
Men do not fail; they give up trying.
And worse, they fail to try again...danged ol' under-achieving socialists.
We have war when at least one of the parties to a conflict wants something more than it wants peace.
And when what they want is not tangible, such as the soul of the infidel...what then, tit for tat? Soul, for eternal soul? Eye, for spite-filled eye? War exists as long as the devil believes one singular soul is left that can be turned from righteousness. And what is righteousness? That eternal attempt to gain a peace that only exists in total on the "other side"; a place where evil has no home. It is an attempt won only by fighting vehemently to bring some semblance of that peace to a world seemingly run by a soul-consuming devil and existing here just shy and short of heaven's bright shore.
There are a few brave souls left who will fight like hell for an impure and clouded reflection of heaven's peace right here on earth. To they alone belong the victory that is heaven's ever-lasting peace."
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
Uh, best of luck to all you socialists out there. Happy hunting!
