“Those who guide their leader by the Way
Will not urge war to dominate the world,
For such a course is bound to haunt is taker.
Fields where armies camp grow thorns and weeds,
And plague and famine follow every war.
With the fruits of victory desist;
Never seek to break a beaten foe,
And flaunt no prowess with the victory,
Assert no strength, show no pride;
Be a victor against your will,
A victor who will not dominate.
“Beware old age in pride of manly might”:
This warns to work not against the Way.
“Work against the Way, die before your day.”

– Moss Roberts
-Tao Te Ching

“War, in the end, is always about betrayal, betrayal of the young by the old, of soldiers by politicians, and of idealists by cynics.”

~Chris Hedges~

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.”

-Dwight D. Eisenhower.

“My personal opinion is that if someone writes honestly about war, it will inherently be anti-war.”
