Peace, Peace, there is no peace

To you who think that to attain peace, all you have to do is declare you are a peaceful nation, tear your defenses down and hope for the best are too cynical for words..Since ww11 there has been only one bright spot that I can recall and that was the economic crushing of the Soviet Union..We could not have done that without a strong military to back it up..All wars since then have resulted in pullouts and truces brought on by the lack of support and the skeaky wheels of the non-supportive element of the American public..For this group, lessons learned don't seem to last till the water gets hot..We as a nation have always fought for peace in the world..Would you have us stop now?

    "...It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace -- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

    ... because, if its been said well, it was probably said by somebody other than me.

  • Dead on.

    I's sad that these things need to be said. They seem so obvious.
