"Talk of imminent threat to our national security through the application of external force is pure nonsense. Indeed it is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear." -

Top 5 quotes from Douglas MacArthur
"No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation."
"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear ó kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor ó with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it."
"Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die."
"The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. Itís the age-old struggleóthe roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other."
"Duty, honour, country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn."
Top 5 quotes from War & Peace
"Warmaking doesn't stop warmaking. If it did, our problems would have stopped millennia ago."
"A tyrant is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader."
"If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!"
"It is only necessary to make war with five things: with the maladies of the body, with the ignorances of the mind, with the passions of the body, with the seditions of the city, with the discords of families."
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
