simple irony

"There never was a good war, or a bad peace."
- Benjamin Franklin

"To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war."
-Winston Churchill

"The notion that you just declare a ceasefire and act as if that is going to solve the problem, I think is simplistic."
- John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Contrary to what you've just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners, only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: The American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you'd like to learn more about war, there's lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool, gory pictures."
- Bart Simpson

two more for you:

"That doctrine of peace at any price has done more mischief than any I can well recall that have been afloat in this country. It has occasioned more wars than any of the most ruthless conquerors. It has disturbed and nearly destroyed that political equilibrium so necessary to the liberties and the welfare of the world." ~ Benjamin Disraeli

Actual war is a very messy business. Very, very messy business. -- Captain Kirk, "A Taste of Armageddon"

war is waged by men with small penises sublimated into larger penises, which seldom reach a climax other than depopulation and premature ejaculation(s).
