More quotes about War
War is not a matter for the professional pacifist or militarist. It is for the unprofessional people. They finance and fight it, they bear its losses. Therefore, they should have the deciding voice concerning it. To do this, they require all the information upon which decisions are made. They should know in a difference, whether it is soluble by rational intelligence, or inevitable by force. Not once in a thousand instances would our people (this may not be true of all peoples, however) approve an offensive war. Never would they be lax in defensive action. For this is their country. However, most of their enemies are within it.
On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other days, on other fields will bear the fruits of victory.
Once war is forced upon us, there is no alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end. War’s very object is victory-not prolonged indecision.
Thus, then, on the night of the tenth of May, at the outset of this mighty battle, I acquired the chief power in the State, which henceforth I wielded in ever-growing measure for five years and three months of world war, at the end of which time, all our enemies having surrendered unconditionally or being about to do so, I was immediately dismissed by the British electorate from all further conduct of their affairs.
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.
The enemy is in front of us, the enemy is behind us, the enemy is to the right and to the left of us. They can’t get away this time!
We had 10 years after the Cold War to build a new world order and yet we squandered them. The United States cannot tolerate anyone acting independently. Every US president has to have a war.
War is a game that is played with a smile. If you can’t smile, grin. If you can’t grin, keep out of the way till you can.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they’d never expect it.
