It'll be a great day when education gets all the money it wants and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy bombers. ~Author unknown

I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, "Mother, what was war?" ~Eve Merriam

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

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower, speech, American Society of Newspaper Editors, 16 April 1953

Everyone's a pacifist between wars. It's like being a vegetarian between meals. ~Colman McCarthy

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education. Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both. ~Abraham Flexner

The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake. ~Jeanette Rankin

If we let people see that kind of thing, there would never again be any war. ~Pentagon official explaining why the U.S. military censored graphic footage from the Gulf War

We need a new law that owners of SUVs are automatically in the military reserve. Then they can go get their own ******* oil. ~Jello Biafra, quoted in The Guardian, 3 November 2007

"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him."

The content of some of the quotes, coupled with US military arrogance, is funny to me.


"Battles are won by slaughter and maneuver. The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver, the less he demands in slaughter." - Winston Churchill

"We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence, and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields, and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender." - Winston Churchill

"There goes the siren that warns of the air raid,
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak.
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne,
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines,
Remove all the wheelblocks there's no time to waste.
Gathering speed as we head down the runway,
Got to get airborne before it's too late.

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers,
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away.
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them,
Move to their blindsides and firing again.

Bandits at 8 O'clock move in behind us,
Ten ME-109's out of the sun.
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them,
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Rolling, turning, diving, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!!!" - Steve Harris

“We love death. The US loves life. That is the difference between us two.” - Osama Bin Laden

I include this quote because of its relevance in a war culture. Societies like the Spartans and the Palestinians and certain African countries can overwhelm their enemy by transforming their people from a group who desires peace to one who desires war. If those fires are constantly stoked, then the furor and hatred will create an impressive soldier. Osama is right: We fight this war so that we can resume our lives pre-9/11 while Al Qaeda fights this war because they desire victory and death to their enemies.

The victor in this situation will be the one who will stand longer, as this is a protracted war for dominance. The culture that hardens its heart and does whatever it takes to win will eventually become victorious.

Friendly fire seems to be your speciality - I guess it's inevitable when you're a bit gung-ho though. I'm not saying you're the only nation that has friendly fire - it's a problem as old as war itself, but you guys so seem to have more than your fair share.

I also have always liked the collections of Murphy's Military Laws. Been around forever in one form or another, I first saw one version on a bulletin board when I was in the AF.

1.Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.

2. No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.

3. Friendly fire isn't.

4. The most dangerous thing in the combat zone is an officer with a map.

5. The problem with taking the easy way out is that the enemy has already mined it.

6. The buddy system is essential to your survival; it gives the enemy somebody else to shoot at.

7. If the enemy is in range, so are you.

8. Incoming fire has the right of way.

9. If your advance is going well, you are walking into an ambush.

10. The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small.

11. If you really need an officer in a hurry, take a nap.

12. The only time suppressive fire works is when it is used on abandoned positions

13. The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

14. There is nothing more satisfying than having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

15. Don't be conspicuous. In the combat zone, it draws fire. Out of the combat zone, it draws sergeants.

16. If your sergeant can see you, so can the enemy.

17. If you are running out of everything but the enemy you have found the front line.

18. The harder you make it for the enemy to reach your position the harder you make it to retreat.

And oldie but goldie:

This is based on an actual radio conversation between a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier (U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln) and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. (The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10/10/95 authorized by the Freedom of Information Act.)

Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid collision.

Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH--I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH--OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

I haven't read any of these, as the concept of your own war quotes is ridiculous.

If you've never experienced war first hand, then you really should be embarassed and maybe even a bit ashamed at trying make war quotes. It's not just naive, but insulting to the people who actually risked or gave their lives to think your experience of sitting in a basement laying FPS games gives you an insight into the horrors they faced.

Just to remain on topic, here's one from someone who actually did know what he was talking about - Churchill. When Britain declared war on Japan in response to the undeclared attack on Singapore, the foreign secretary (who would normally draft the declaration of war) was away, so Chrchill did it himself, and did so in very formal and diplomatic language, saying...

" Sir,
On the evening of December 7th His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom learned that Japanese forces without previous warning either in the form of a declaration of war or of an ultimatum with a conditional declaration of war had attempted a landing on the coast of Malaya and bombed Singapore and Hong Kong.
In view of these wanton acts of unprovoked aggression committed in flagrant violation of International Law and particularly of Article I of the Third Hague Convention relative to the opening of hostilities, to which both Japan and the United Kingdom are parties, His Majesty's Ambassador at Tokyo has been instructed to inform the Imperial Japanese Government in the name of His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom that a state of war exists between our two countries.
I have the honour to be, with high consideration,

Sir,
Your obedient servant,
Winston S. Churchill"

I find this one a little funny.

A young marine was being interview, and he was asked:
"What is the Marine Corps' Mission in Iraq?"
He replies: It's to beat the Army to Baghdad, sir."

Its common practice to create competition between commanders I think ever since Stalin did it in the Eastern front.

Common practice? Last I remember stalin killed all his high rank commanders, cause they failed their mission or just for not listening, maybe a common practice between us forces. Don't know what you mean, best way write a quote on Stalin forces that shows they were competeing like how the army and marine rival in the usa armed forces

Here are a few quotes I have written myself about war, from things I have read or studied. Currently I am a student in college with the AFROTC, training to be an officer, I'm not active duty yet, but I often think of these things. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

"A man is only as good as his weapon. Without one you are helpful to no one and become a liablity to everyone." (be it hand or rifle)

"Being cornered isn't always a bad thing. Atleast your flanks are covered."

"A warrior is not just someone who picks up a weapon. A warrior is a professional, proficient in the tactics and aspects of armed combat. A warrior is driven, to be better than his peers and makes excellence in all his works. A warrior is honorable, integrity and fairness guide his actions. To be held to a higher standard, that is what a warrior is..."

"The use of force is the political move to persuade the opponent to do your bidding. In which, we are the tool used to apply that force, projected at a global scale. That political power is what makes our nation so powerful..."

"The sword is only as deadly as the warrior who wields it. A weapon then, is merely an empty shell without the skilled arm to do its bidding. Thus the military is only half of what you need for an effective force."

"The face of war has changed. No longer are the days of old where countries would de-solve entire fighting forces after conflict. A countries force must be ready and diligent at all times and places. No longer are the times of armies employing defensive tactics. Those that do, lose out to the speed and intensity of the first strike. This is the modern battlefield."

"True courage is defined as watching everything fall apart around you, yet you continue to fight"

"A force is only as strong as its founding principles. Those that value honor and self sacrifice have a far better chance of success than those who fight for their own personal gain."

"Those that want war, never know their true cost..."

“The meaning of honor is this. To do what’s right no matter how much it costs you. If you have nothing left, then you’re doing it right.”

"The difference between a soldier and a great soldier is knowing when to stand and fight, or retreat to fight another day."

"Deterrence can play a major part in any conflict. When you’re walking around the battlefield with the biggest damn stick, you don’t have to use it to get others to do what you want."

"The objective in waging war against another nation is political rather than military. The most effective means of achieving victory is breaking the people's willingness to fight. Cutting supply lines, communications, and other support functions are far more effective in damaging the people's support for war than attacking a military force directly."

“Victory does not solidify lasting peace. True peace can only be obtained by the recognition of the horrors of war and compromise by both sides.”

"Strategic warfare is the ability to destroy your enemy's ability to wage war. Surgically attacking Communications, Supply, Intelligence, and Command assets will make your enemy blind, deaf, and dumb; effectively severing the head of the snake. Without these assets, the muscle of a military force becomes useless."

"At the correct moment and place, a mere show of force can be enough to deter an enemy. You need not feel the sword to know its sting…"


I know some of these may seem like simple concepts, and I suppose most of them are. I hope you enjoy these quotes, I've actually been working on them for a few years. Let me know what you think. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

He had two generals one for the North and one for the South so that they could compete to get to Berlin. It worked because the Northern one (Zhukov) just kept using human wave tactics until he got to Berlin.

Eh, I suppose so. The point was, winning by military victory alone then ruling with an iron fist does not solidify lasting peace. Those torutured by their regime would eventually rise up.

American Revolution could be an example, maybe even the Roman Empire.

This is a war quote last I remember. Sorry if I can't help you think or write a quote for yourself. I have a friend that went there twice and cause of him I'm here to represent what he did. If your bp's beatch then I understand. But instead of commenting peoples quotes. Make your own. And Marines are corny, bet you ain't got the balls to tell them that. And I hope your not a American.

hahahaha, what year is this? Thats funny.

Anyway Iwo Jima and Guadal Canal were different then Baghdad, Baghdad is a population center, you're not fighting a standing army and the road ahead could be the one that blows you up. Not to mention Iwo Jima was a guaranteed victory from the start, the Japanese soldiers were just trying to kill as many Americans as possible in order to stop an invasion of Japan because of the projected cost. So technically Iwo Jima was a failure because the Japanese succeeded in what they sought out to do.

Actually the Roman Empire collapsed in on it's self like we're about to do and if you look back at China and Japan's medieval times that's basically what they did. Also I think Russia has got this down pat pretty good as well.

correct, I am no american.

All I was saying is that the marines seem to be quite....indoctrinated, prehaps that is the right word.

Being the 'first to go, last to know' is not a motto I would be proud of.

Besides it dosen't matter what the skill of a soldier is in the wars of tomorrow. A nuke is a nuke and a human is a human.
