War Quotes

Here’s a selection of some war quotes I like that I found on the net, all of them are true but people will never learn that war never solves anything!

They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason. -Ernest Hemmingway

War does not determine who is right – only who is left. -Bertrand Russell

The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations. -David Friedman

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets. -Voltaire, War

Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity. -Author Unknown

You can’t say civilization don’t advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way. -Will Rogers, New York Times, 23 December 1929

and finally I hope that …

A day will come when a cannon will be exhibited in museums, just as instruments of torture are now, and the people will be astonished that such a thing could have been. -Victor Hugo

A 17 year old girl is sentenced to death by hanging

EDIT: The article is apparently old. The Girl was freed, check the comments for more info.

The crazy regime in Iran is about to commit a new crime! They are sentenced a 17 years old girl to death by hanging for defending herself against three men that wanted to rape her! The 3 rapists attacked her in a park so she stabbed one of the attackers who latter died in hospital and this act of self defense is getting her a death sentence!

What’s more crazy about this is that if she did not resist rape she would have been killed by her relatives to preserve the “family honor” or she would have been stoned as adulterer.

I don’t really know what the world can do to stop this but you can’t find some ways to help in the original article.

Israel Bombed Syria

Last night Israel bombed Syria!! The Syrian fired at the planes but as usual they did not hit anything, I wonder were are the Migs hiding? The weird thing is that Syria just made the news public and an Israeli did not comment! The Syrians also made a threat to Israel: “if they repeat this something bad will happen”.

I thinks that’s a message from Israel to Syria gently explaining to them that they are still stronger and that they can attack them any time they want no matter what kind of weapons they buy from Russia.

PS: I just hope the Syrian reply doesn’t come through Hezbollah!
