It’s always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is. And it’s always the #war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades.
’The #war in Iraq - if Osama was a Christian - it’s the Christmas present he never would have expected.
I made a French film called ’Merry Christmas’ which is a very European film. It’s a World #war I piece.
We should declare #war on North Vietnam. We could pave the whole country and put parking strips on it, and still be home by Christmas.
Australians are coffee snobs. An influx of Italian immigrants after World #war II ensured that - we probably had the word ’cappuccino’ about 20 years before America. Cafe culture is really big for Aussies. We like to work hard, but we take our leisure time seriously.
No matter how vast, how total, the failure of man here on earth, the work of man will be resumed elsewhere. #war leaders talk of resuming operations on this front and that, but man’s front embraces the whole universe.
In #war as in life, it is often necessary when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.
We women are constantly at #war with our bodies, it is hard to find amnesty for ourselves.
There’s something brave and touching about game girls of all ages keeping themselves smart in hard times - one thinks of those wonderful women during World #war II drawing stocking seams in eyebrow pencil up the back of legs stained with gravy browning because nylons were so hard to get hold of.
Hundreds of thousands of American servicemen and women are deployed across the world in the #war on terror. By bringing hope to the oppressed, and delivering justice to the violent, they are making America more secure.
It is now conventional wisdom that Americans do not care why we went to #war in Iraq, that it is enough that the world is better off without Saddam Hussein.
We learned in World #war II that no single nation holds a monopoly on wisdom, morality or right to power, but that we must fight for the weak and promote democracy.
All #war Departments are now Defense Departments. This is all part of the doubletalk of our time. The aggressor is always on the other side.
There is nothing worth having that can he obtained by nuclear #war - nothing material or ideological - no tradition that it can defend. It is utterly self-defeating.
How do you tell troops who volunteered to fight for our freedoms that the country they fought for won’t take care of them when they come back? In the time of #war our troops and their families are supposed to be our number one priority.
The British Red Cross asked me to help them spearhead a fundraising campaign for the victims of the #war in Nicaragua. It was a turning point in my life. It began my commitment to justice and human rights issues.
That’s Anil’s path. She grows up in Sri Lanka, goes and gets educated abroad, and through fate or chance gets brought back by the Human Rights Commission to investigate #war crimes.
The Sandinista government became consumed with fighting a #war of survival. They were up against the biggest superpower in the world.
Maybe more climate activists will think about the climate change not as an international problem to be resolved in an air-conditioned meeting hall, but as a guerilla #war to be fought in the streets.
There is a question for which we will never know the answer: had the U.S. not launched the Contra #war to overthrow the Sandinista government, would they have succeeded in bringing socioeconomic justice to the people of Nicaragua?
In reality, Republicans have long been at #war with clean energy. They have ridiculed investments in solar and wind power, bashed energy-efficiency standards, attacked state moves to promote renewable energy and championed laws that would enshrine taxpayer subsidies for fossil fuels while stripping them from wind and solar.
I’m actually reading ’World #war Z’ again! It’s incredibly realistic and it’s written as an oral history through interviews with different characters. Max Brooks wrote this book in so many different voices. There are about forty or so. It’s incredible. When I finish ’World #war Z’ I’m going to go back and start again on the ’Game of Thrones’ series.
Bush’s #war in Iraq has done untold damage to the United States. It has impaired our military power and undermined the morale of our armed forces. Our troops were trained to project overwhelming power. They were not trained for occupation duties.
My point was that the #war was intrinsically wrong, and as a result of our participation we haven’t improved Australia’s security but created a greater danger at home and abroad.
I found that I was getting a #warm reception for my message of freeing you from the income tax, releasing you from Social Security, ending the insane #war on drugs, restoring gun rights, and reducing the federal government to just its constitutional functions.
