WAR: What is it good for?

(--other than making SOME people very very rich)

"War: first, one hopes to win;
then one expects the enemy to lose;
then one is satisfied that he too is suffering;
in the end, one is surprised that everyone has lost."

Karl Kraus 1874-1936


"How is the world ruled
and how do wars start?
Diplomats tell lies to journalists
and then believe what they read."

Karl Kraus 1874 - 1936


"There are only two things we should fight for:
One is the defense of our homes
and the other is the Bill of Rights.
War for any other reason is simply a racket."

Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC,
twice awarded Congressional Medal of Honor.


"Patriotism is the religion of hell."
James Branch Cabell
