War

Icon war2.svg
War, as Clausewitz says, is a mere continuation of politics by other means. It's what happens when diplomacy breaks down. And, of course, it never changes.

Best of War

Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? ... But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.... That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
      – Hermann Göring at the Nuremberg trials.
