'TO HELL WITH WAR!' - Major General Smedley Butler

Posted by ProjectC 
'How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?



- Major General Smedley Butler, <a href="[ratical.org] Is A Racket</a>, 1935


'..Positive Peace as a holistic, systemic framework.'

(Peace) - '..defence forces in nations .. make the .. transformation to non-lethal defence..'

(Peace) NATO - Non-lethal weapons '..allow suspects to be stopped without killing them..'

'..the priority now should be to end the war. Many Syrians have concluded that almost any peace, even an imperfect or ugly peace, is better than ongoing violence.' - Jimmy Carter
