It's good to be reminded of words of wisdom.
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.” —John Stuart Mill
"War sucks but a world run by Islamofacists sucks more." - T.F. Boggs
"There's only one thing worse than an overstressed Army and Marine Corps, and that's a defeated Army and Marine Corps. I believe this is a recipe that will lead to our defeat sooner than later in Iraq." - John McCain, arguing for the Surge.
