Topic: Taking the blinders off...


Found some more quotes lying around, the first one really rings true:


If your country's worth living in, it's worth fighting for ... you can't fight a war without losing lives. Although no one wants killing, sometimes it has to be. To keep your country free sometimes you have to fight and die.
- Billy Mabin Shankill Road, 1916


Guard with jealous attention to the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
- Patrick Henry


Diplomacy --- the art of saying `Nice doggie' 'til you can find a stick.
- Wynn Catlin


It is one thing to shout for peace, but quite another to encourage the obvious enemy by saying in advance that you won't fight in any circumstances.
- Maurice Oldfield


Tanks are easily identified, easily engaged, much-feared targets which attract all the fire on the battlefield. When all is said and done, a tank is a small steel box crammed with inflammable or explosive substances which is easily converted into a mobile crematorium for its highly skilled crew.
- Brigadier Shelford Bidwell

Added the quotes to the site now.

I found a bit longer version of the first one:
"If your country's worth living in, it's worth fighting for ... you can't fight a war without losing lives. Although no one wants killing, sometimes it has to be. To keep your country free sometimes you have to fight and die. It was to be a great honor to us."
