"He does not believe who does not live according to his belief."
- Thomas Fuller
Isn't it curious how so many politicians, these tough-guy-talking wannabe war lords, "big men", "real warriors", "talk the talk" about all the wars they want to start, and how so very, very few actually "walk the walk"? I suppose that's because words are cheap and easy, actions aren't. Really easy to run one's mouth, like the NeoCon trash, so bold and fierce and brave sitting in an office in DC. Curiously, it's always too inconvenient for them or their children to actually go fight a war, but they have no difficulties sending your kid and mine to die in one. As Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “When people speak to you about a preventive war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have come to hate war. War settles nothing.” I think sending them to fight the wars they want would be a very good idea...
