Military Quotes A-Z by Author
When I began my military service I thought
it would be like the military service I
had seen in the movie, From Here to Eternity
(of 1953). That was the image I had. I even
took my tennis racket with me. But it wasn't
anything like the movie.
Armani - Military
It was when I entered the military preparatory
school and put on its uniform, that a feeling
of strength came to me, as if I had become
master of my own destiny.
Kemal Ataturk - Strength
Boy, these conservatives are really something,
aren't they? They're all in favor of the
unborn. They will do anything for the unborn.
But once you're born, you're on your own.
Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with
the fetus from conception to nine months.
After that, they don't want to know about
you. They don't want to hear from you. No
nothing. No neonatal care, no day care,
no head start, no school lunch, no food
stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're
preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool,
you're f**ked. Conservatives don't give
a shit about you until you reach 'military
age'. Then they think you are just fine.
Carlin - Military
Military cemeteries around the world are
packed with brainwashed dead soldiers who
were convinced God was on their side. America
prays for God to destroy our enemies. Our
enemies pray for God to destroy us. Somebody's
gonna be disappointed! Somebody's wasting
their time! Could it be.. everyone?
Carlin - America
Policy - Pray
The threat of China is not military. The
threat of China is they can't be intimidated.
Europe you can intimidate. When the US tries
to get people to stop investing in Iran,
European companies pull out, China disregards
it. You look at history and understand why
they've been around for 4,000 years,
they have contempt for the barbarians, they
just don't give a damn.
Chomsky - China
Military men are 'dumb, stupid animals to
be used' as pawns for foreign policy.
Kissinger - Military
I would say the special experience of American
wartime policy in the last 40 years, from
Vietnam on, is that the war itself became
controversial in the country and that the
most important thing we need in the current
situation is, whatever disagreements there
may be on tactics, that the legitimacy of
the war itself does not become a subject
of controversy. We have to start with the
assumption, obviously, that whatever administration
is conducting a war wants to end it.
Kissinger - Military
We fought a military war; our opponents
fought a political one. We sought physical
attrition; our opponents aimed for our psychological
exhaustion. In the process we lost sight
of one of the cardinal maxims of guerrilla
war: the guerrilla wins if he does not lose.
The conventional army loses if it does not
win. The North Vietnamese used their armed
forces the way a bull-fighter uses his cape..
to keep us lunging in areas of marginal
Kissinger - Military
Forces - Strategy
Im more interested in economic issues
than how much military we need. But I think
we should gradually withdraw from the Middle
East, you know, from Afghanistan and Iraq,
so I believe in that. But Im not an
expert in that, so my opinion probably doesnt
count for very much.
Koch - America

We have to make education a priority, but
all this debate about education and testing
is almost beside the point. We only spend
a fraction of the money on education that
we spend on arms buildups. Under a Kucinich
administration, education becomes one of
the top domestic priorities. We put money
into it. We cause the government to be vitally
involved in it. And we make sure our children
have the love of knowledge.
Kucinich - Government
The only way to meet pressing social needs
and be fiscally responsible is to cut the
runaway Pentagon budget, which now almost
equals the military spending of all other
countries in the world combined.
Kucinich - Military
This country was taken into war based on
lies about weapons of mass destruction and
Al Qaeda's role with respect to Iraq, which
there wasn't one at the time we went in.
I want to state that Mr.
Cheney must be held accountable. He
is already ginning up a cause for war against
Iran. Now, we have to stand for this Constitution,
we have to protect and defend this Constitution.
Kucinich - Military
In the model that we grew up with, governments
rule physical territory in which national
economies function, and strong economies
support hegemonic military power. In the
new model, already emerging under our noses,
economic decisions dont pay much attention
to national sovereignty in a world where
more than half of the one hundred or two
hundred largest economic entities are not
countries but companies.
Lovins - Politics
It's a mistake to think that poor people
get the benefit from the welfare system.
It's a total fraud. Most welfare go to the
rich of this country: the military-industrial
complex, the bankers, the foreign dictators,
it's totally out of control.
Paul - Mistake
War is never economically beneficial except
for those in position to profit from war
Paul - Economy
Industrial Complex - War
Were bankrupting our country and we
have an empire that were trying to
defend which costs us $1 trillion a year.
And the standard of living is going down
today. Its going down and the middle
class is hurting because of the monetary
policy. When you destroy a currency, the
middle class gets wiped out.
Paul - American
Policy - Currency
You save free markets by promoting free
markets and sound money and balanced budgets.
The whole reason why nobody wants to address
the real problem is, we're spending a trillion
dollars a year overseas running an empire,
and it's coming to an end. This country
is bankrupt, and we won't admit it. Eventually
though, the dollar will go bust, and we
will bring our troops home, and we will
live within our means, but we ought to do
it sensibly, rather than waiting for the
collapse of the dollar, and this is what
we're doing, we're on the verge of destroying
Paul - Spending
Policy - Budget
Welfarism and excessive spending and deficits
and socialism divide us, because everybody
has to go to Washington. Those who have
the biggest clout, whose who are the best
lobbyists, those who go and they grab. And
whether it's the medical industrial complex,
or the banking industry, or the military
industrial complex, that's who ends up controlling
Paul - Government
Industrial Complex - Socialism
Pray for our military men and women who
are, striving to do what is right also for
this country, that our leaders, our national
leaders are sending them out on a task that
is from God. That is what we have to make
sure we are praying for: that there is a
plan, and that that plan is God's plan..
So bless them with your prayers. (said in
a speech to graduating ministry students
Palin - America
A military operation involves deception.
Even though you are competent, appear to
be incompetent. Though effective, appear
to be ineffective.
Tzu - Battle
