Sun Tzu Quote

“In all history, there is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare. Only one who knows the disastrous effects of a long war can realize the supreme importance of rapidity in bringing it to a close.”

~ Sun Tzu

Which is what the US sould be doing right now!!!!!!!!! or do you people like watching body bags going home?

Joe, Rochester, MI

Bring our soldiers home, from Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world. If other countries want freedom, let THEM pay for it with their blood, not ours. I hate congress using the people's money for wars that are none of our business.

    Our brothers knew this well in WW II, we fought to win, to a fast win, total and swift is the true nature, we were at total war, if we dont get some constitutional leadership, we may again find ourselves in total war. There is still hope.

    We could win any war, anywhere, over night, without putting 1 American boot on the ground. Why are our soldiers lives worth less than the lives of foreign civilians?

    According to Sun Tzu, war should be swift and decisive. Today, war is Big Business. I wonder how Cheney's stock in Halliburton is doing...

    Traci, that is a question well asked.

    Traci, the problem is that we don't "win" wars anymore, as in Korea,Viet Nam, and the mess we are in now. Wonder why that is.

    It is by design. Besides the obvious, look what it has done to help debase the individual psyche; immorality has superseded morality for that which is called good, individuals now clamor for justice (retribution in reality) instead of peace, love, forgiveness, etc., power and control has replaced equal benefit, and anger has become the first response in finger pointing.

    The beneficiaries of war are the financiers, thus if the war is dragging on, it is because it is profitable to do so. Where is the US getting over a trillion dollars to fight wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and a host of other countries? They borrow it on our backs and the backs of our children, and the profits go to the lenders -- very often private central banks that print up their money from nothing. Isn't it a bit precarious to be in debt to the communist Chinese for our very survival? Wake up, folks.

    Ditto re: E Archer's post. "War is a Racket", by late General Smedley Darlington Butler.

    Those warmongers in Washington should try reading the Art of War, then they would know how to actually fight a war.
