WINSTON CHURCHILL SAYS...

"Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events." Amen to that! War is hard, not easy, contrary to popular belief. Perhaps our arrogance is what miscalculated the war in Iraq. Just a thought.

...and the Iraqi's even want to give up the fight too! Damn they are so unAmerican with such a defeatist attitude! ;-)

nik, i can't believe you haven't done a post on obama's visit to iraq. it's in all the papers in the north east.

War should be the absolute last resort. It always loses lives, rarely solves anything, and usually creates more anger and dissention. I hope the next time this country gets involved in (hopefully not START again) a war, the reasons behind it are solid and irrefutable.

Maria and Maria #2...haha I love your little vodka comments they crack me up! You know I am struggling with the publicity I am so giving to the Obamanator as negative as it may be...he doesn't need to constantly take up space on my blog, haha...having said that, you are right there are some interesting things happening that I may just have to comment on...we shall see. Thanks for the nudge, I NEED IT! :)N

DB...could this be an attempt for another controlling PM in the neverending madening country of what is and should be called Babylon...its always been trouble since day one. :)N

Sandi, no one likes wars and the death and destruction. Sometimes there is a need and even those conflicts at times are futile. Thanks for your thoughts. :)N

great quote...I just worked for 6 hours on my last post girl!..lol

DB said...

Good point Nikki. Perhaps this PM is a douche who wants to control his own country. We put him there to be our puppet and if he doesn't act the part we should remove him.

Nikki said...

WHT, I will be over to read! thanks for the heads up. :)N

DB, damn right. No PM's in Iraq making their own decisions. No can trust. :)N

amen! i love when people say that war isn't necessary and they actually think that world peace is a possiblity. oh yea, really? you're right. nothing ever got solved by war except measly little things like the defeat of fascist dictators, the end of the holocaust...blah blah..*yawn*
