A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own: H.G. Wells

=
"When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird. He was laying there and something struck me. Why do we call this fun to kill this creature who was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning." Marv Levy
=
"COWARDICE, n. A charge often levelled by all-American types against those who stand up for their beliefs by refusing to fight in wars they find unconscionable, and who willingly go to prison or into exile in order to avoid violating their own consciences. These 'cowards' are to be contrasted with red-blooded, 'patriotic' youths who literally bend over, grab their ankles, submit to the government, fight in wars they do not understand (or disapprove of), and blindly obey orders to maim and to kill simply because they are ordered to do so-all to the howling approval of the all-American mob. This type of behavior is commonly termed 'courageous.'" : Chaz Bufe
=
"When people decry civilian deaths caused by the U.S government, they're aiding propaganda efforts. In sharp contrast, when civilian deaths are caused by bombers who hate America, the perpetrators are evil and those deaths are tragedies. When they put bombs in cars and kill people, they're uncivilized killers. When we put bombs on missiles and kill people, we're upholding civilized values. When they kill, they're terrorists. When we kill, we're striking against terror".  Norman Solomon 
=
"We will bankrupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security".  Dwight D. Eisenhower 

"Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it". Noam Chomsky
=
"War provides an outlet for every evil element in man's nature. It enfranchises cupidity and greed gives a charter to petty tyranny, glorifies cruelty and places in positions of power the vulgar and base." Cyril Edwin Mitchinson Joad, Guide to Modern Wickedness
=
Countries that invest heavily in “intelligence agencies” are ruled by murderers, liars and thieves who come but to kill, steal and destroy whose language is double-speak. Emet Tzedakah
=
"Can any reasonable man be well disposed toward a government which makes war and carnage the only means of supporting itself?" -- Alexander Hamilton - (1757-1804) - Source: at the US Constitutional Convention
=
"Throughout the history of the United States, war has been the primary impetus behind the growth and development of the central state. It has been the lever by which presidents and other national officials have bolstered the power of the state in the face of tenacious popular resistance." -- Bruce D. Porter - (1952- ) Professor of political science at Brigham Young University - Source: "War and the Rise of the State", 1994
=
"Colorful demonstrations and weekend marches are vital but alone are not powerful enough to stop wars. Wars will be stopped only when soldiers refuse to fight, when workers refuse to load weapons onto ships and aircraft, when people boycott the economic outposts of Empire that are strung across the globe. " - Arundhati Roy (Public Power in the Age of Empire)
=
So they collected the cripples, the wounded, the maimed
And they shipped us back home to Australia
The armless, the legless, the blind, the insane
Those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay
I looked at the place where my legs used to be
And thank Christ there was nobody waiting for me
To grieve and to mourn and to pity
And the band played Waltzing Matilda
As they carried us down the gangway
But nobody cheered, they just stood and stared
Then turned all their faces away
And the band played Waltzing Mathilda -

=
"War sucks always, so why do we allow ourselves to be sucked into it?" Emet Tzedakah
=
"All war is based on deception." - Sun Tzu, in The Art of War
=
"In modern political society it is probably a fact that national leadership can heighten foreign crises to the point where war becomes almost inevitable and public approval, at least for a time, automatic." - Arthur A. Ekirch Jr. Ideas, Ideals, and American Diplomacy
=
"We need to take our country back from the avaricious corporatocracy that feeds on the War Economy. The War Machine has our leadership , our Media and our very lives in its pocket. Everywhere health care, education, and fundamental human rights have suffered . We, as Americans and as members of the human race , must place Peace as our primary raison d'etre and begin the movement into an Age where violence is no more." -  Barton Boyce
=
Perhaps man’s insanity is illustrated most by millions of them going to war for land, flags, and pride to kill another human being because some authority figure declared it legal and right to do so. Listen man! You are accountable to someone much higher than Hitler, Stalin Mao Zedong, George Bush or Barak Obama! Your highest authority said, “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who persecute you.” What don’t you understand about this simple command?! Jesus, Matt. 5:38-48.

People who make war in order to escape slavery may possibly win....This will doubtless bring death and suffering to thousands....But people who tamely allow slavery to be imposed on them without resorting to a defensive war are inevitably doomed to years of death and suffering--and far more of each than any war would bring to them....The army doesn't exist that can annihilate men in their own land--not if they love it sufficiently." Kenneth Roberts, Lydia Bailey
