It is the soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
Father Denis Edward O'Brien USMC
“Diplomacy is utterly useless where there is
no force behind it.”
Pacifists are among the most immoral of men. They make no distinction between aggression and defense.
Therefore, pacifism is one of the greatest allies an aggressor can have.
The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those
who, in time of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality
