War Quotes A-Z by Author War Quotes A-Z by Author

It really is my opinion that media in general are so bad that we have to question whether the world wouldn't be better off without them altogether. They are so distortive to how the world actually is that the result is.. we see wars, and we see corrupt governments continue on.
Julian Assange - Media - Lies - Opinions - Bad - Geopolitics - War - Corrupt

One of the hopeful things that I’ve discovered is that nearly every war that has started in the past 50 years has been a result of media lies. The media could've stopped it if they had searched deep enough; if they hadn't reprinted government propaganda they could've stopped it.
Julian Assange - Media - Lies - Government - Propaganda - War

Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives.. you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours.. You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now living in our bosom and are in peace. Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Life - War


The average voter out there understands that the next president is going to have to be prepared to immediately step in without hesitation and end our involvement in Iraq. It's very difficult to figure out how to move on to broader foreign policy concerns without fixing Iraq first.
Joe Biden -
War - Voting - President - Iraq - Politics

The change we need is fixing this broken economy from the bottom up.. not tax breaks for the wealthy and huge corporations that ship U.S. jobs overseas. We need to focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban and restoring America's standing in the world.. not an unending commitment in Iraq.
Joe Biden - War - Iraq - Change - Economy - Taxes - Wealth - Companies - America - Jobs - World - Commitment


With a small fraction of the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the Iraq war, the US and Australia could ensure every starving, sunken-eyed child on the planet could be well fed, have clean water and sanitation and a local school to go to.
Bob Brown - Money - Poverty - War


I don’t think there is an implicit obligation for the United States to follow like a stupid mule whatever the Israelis do. If they decide to start a war, simply on the assumption that we will be automatically drawn into it, I think it is the obligation of friendship to say “you’re not going to be making national decisions for us”
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Geopolitics - Israel - Foreign Policy - Obligation
- Stupid - War

The mistakes of the Iraq war are not only tactical and strategic, but historical. It is essentially a war of colonialism, attempted in the post-colonial age.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - Geopolitics - War - Mistakes - History - Iraq
- Strategic - Tactical

This can be solved either by agreement or by intimidation, but not by war. War with Iran would be explosive and destructive for the entire region. I think the president must gradually move away from the notion that force is the last resort. It's not a resort at all.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - Geopolitics - Foreign Policy - Politics - President - Threat - War - Iran


We're taking action against evil people. Because this great nation of many religions understands, our war is not against Islam, or against faith practiced by the Muslim people. Our war is a war against evil. This is clearly a case of good versus evil, and make no mistake about it.. good will prevail.
George Bush -
War - America - Religion - Faith

I've made it clear, Madam President, that the war against terrorism is not a war against Muslims, nor is it a war against Arabs. It's a war against evil people who conduct crimes against innocent people.
George Bush -
War - Politics - Religion - Arab

As Americans, we want peace.. we work and sacrifice for peace. But there can be no peace if our security depends on the will and whims of a ruthless and aggressive dictator. I'm not willing to stake one American life on trusting Saddam Hussein.
George Bush -
War - America - Peace - Leadership

When fascism comes to America, it will not be in brown and black shirts. It will not be with jack-boots. It will be Nike sneakers and Smiley shirts. Germany lost the Second World War. Fascism won it. Believe me, my friend.
George Carlin - America - Fascism - Germany - War - Deception


This war has been motivated by pride or arrogance, by a desire to control oil wealth, by a desire to implant our programs. (talking about the Iraq war)
Jimmy Carter - War
- Greed - Power

We can drift along as though there were still a cold war, wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on weapons that will never be used, ignoring the problems of people in this country and around the world, being one of the worst environmental violators on earth, standing against any sort of viable programs to protect the world's forests or to cut down on acid rain or the global warming or ozone depletion. We can ignore human rights violations in other countries, or we can take these things on as true leaders ought to and accept the inspiring challenge of America for the future.
Jimmy Carter - Environmental
- Power - War - Problems

In order for us human beings to commit ourselves personally to the inhumanity of war, we find it necessary first to dehumanize our opponents, which is in itself a violation of the beliefs of all religions. Once we characterize our adversaries as beyond the scope of God's mercy and grace, their lives lose all value.
Jimmy Carter - War
- Life - Belief

A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war, wide awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake, and whoever makes it will live to regret his steps.
Carlos Castaneda - Knowledge - Regret - Awareness - War - Fear - Respect - Mistakes

We must be prepared to face our responsibilities and be willing to use force if necessary.
Dick Cheney - War
- Responsibility

Never give in.. never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force.. never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

Winston Churchill - Strength - Challenges - Encouragement - War

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 - Strength - Challenges - Encouragement - War

A war is never undertaken by the ideal State, except in defense of its honor or its safety.
Marcus Tullius Cicero - War - Defense

To have security against atomic bombs and against the other biological weapons, we have to prevent war, for if we cannot prevent war every nation will use every means that is at their disposal; and in spite of all promises they make, they will do it. At the same time, so long as war is not prevented, all the governments of the nations have to prepare for war, and if you have to prepare for war, then you are in a state where you cannot abolish war.
Albert Einstein - Responsibility - War - Power - Governments - Insanity

I think Israel, as a number of commentators pointed out, is becoming an insane state. And we have to be honest about that. While the rest of the world wants peace, Europe wants peace, the US wants peace, but this state wants war, war and war.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - America - Europe - Terror - Insane - Honesty - Peace - War

I strongly believe that a small Jewish clique which has contempt for the mass of Jewish people worked with non-Jews to create the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the Second World War. This Jewish/non-Jewish Elite used the First World War to secure the Balfour Declaration and the principle of the Jewish State of Israel.
David Icke - Jewish - War - Cabal - Elite - Israel - Manipulation - Geopolitics
- Conspiracy Theory - Illuminati

Today, the stranglehold of the controlling negative forces upon Earth is extremely advanced and is choking the very life from our planet. The effects of this are evident everywhere in the form of fear, separation, war, disease and multifarious kinds of disharmony on all levels.
David Icke - Crisis - Tyranny - Fear - Control - Negative - Earth - Life - War - Disease


These powerbrokers, which bomb innocent countries and slaughter people, and, you know, pump the food chain full of garbage and just everything else they do, it's probably something fun for them. They really get off on being bad little boys.
Alex Jones - Elite - Power - Killing - Evil - War

Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe. The survival of our friends is in danger. And yet no war has been declared, no borders have been crossed by marching troops, no missiles have been fired.
John F. Kennedy - USA - Attack - War - Troops - Enemy - Survival - Danger - Globe - JFK Speech

I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country's peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of "clear and present danger," the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public's need for national security.
John F. Kennedy - USA - War - Government - Danger - Enemy - Security - Press - First Amendment - News - Media - Journalism - JFK Speech

Men, for years now, have been talking about war and peace. But now, no longer can they just talk about it. It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it's nonviolence or nonexistence.
Martin Luther King Jr - Death
- Life - Destructive - War - Peace - World - Violence

Communism forgets that life is individual. Capitalism forgets that life is social, and the kingdom of brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of communism nor the antithesis of capitalism but in a higher synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis that combines the truths of both. Now, when I say question the whole society, it means ultimately coming to see that the problem of racism, the problem of exploitation, and the problem of war are all tied together. These are the triple evils that are interrelated.
Martin Luther King Jr - Truth - Life - Racism - War - Evil - Communism - Capitalism - Questions - Social - Problems


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.
Henry Kissinger - Military - America - Geopolitics - War - Policy - Vietnam - Controversial - Tactics

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 political importance.
Henry Kissinger - Military - Soldier - Asia - War - Vietnam - Tactics - Fighting - Armed Forces - Strategy - Psychology

The tax code is not the only area where the administration is helping the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It has spent $155 billion for an unnecessary war driven by fear.
Dennis Kucinich - Republican - Rich - Poor - War - Fear - Tax

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.
Dennis Kucinich - Military - America - Weapon - War - Lies - Iran - Iraq - Constitution - Terrorism

Let it never be said by future generations that indifference, cynicism or selfishness made us fail to live up to the ideals of humanism which the Nobel Peace Prize encapsulates. Let the strivings of us all, prove Martin Luther King Jr. to have been correct, when he said that humanity can no longer be tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war.
Nelson Mandela - Peace - Inspirational - Human Rights - Selfish - Failure - Ideals
- War

I was wise to quit writing for the Sun back in January, 1941, for it was obvious by then that Roosevelt would horn into the war soon or late, and I knew by bitter experience in the last war that I'd be throttled at once. Since then I have thought out many likely articles, but not one of them has been printable. In these days, indeed, my very vocabulary is prohibited. I couldn't so much as mention Roosevelt or Churchill or any of the other frauds without having to face a savage official onslaught, with all blows directed below the belt. The common notion that free speech prevails in the United States always makes me laugh.
H. L. Mencken - Government - Politics - Newspapers - America - Quitting - War - Freedom of Speech - Fraud

The course of the United States in World War II, I said, was dishonest, dishonorable, and ignominious, and the Sunpapers, by supporting Roosevelt's foreign policy, shared in this disgrace.
H. L. Mencken - America - War - Dishonesty - Newspapers - Foreign Policy

This combat between proletariat and plutocracy is, after all, itself a civil war. Two inferiorities struggle for the privilege of polluting the world.
H. L. Mencken - Proletariat - War - Plutocracy

In spite of Bush's win, the majority of Americans still think the country is headed in the wrong direction (56%), think the war wasn't worth fighting (51%), and don’t approve of the job George W. Bush is doing (52%).
Michael Moore - America - Winning - Politicians
- War - President

The motivation for war is simple. The U.S. government started the war with Iraq in order to make it easy for U.S. corporations to do business in other countries. They intend to use cheap labor in those countries, which will make Americans rich.
Michael Moore - Greed - America - War - Business - Rich - Government

I personally hold Tony Blair more responsible for this war (in Iraq) than I do George Bush. The reason is, Blair knows better, Blair is not an idiot. What is he doing hanging around this guy?
Michael Moore - Politicians - War - President - Responsibility


I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
Barack Obama -
War - Stupid

In my heart I know you didn't come here just for me, you came here because you believe in what this country can be. In the face of war, you believe there can be peace. In the face of despair, you believe there can be hope. In the face of a politics that's shut you out, that's told you to settle, that's divided us for too long, you believe we can be one people, reaching for what's possible, building that more perfect union.
Barack Obama - War - Encouragement - America - Politics - Belief


War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures.
Ron Paul - Economy - Military Industrial Complex - War - Profits

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 in 2008)
Sarah Palin -
America - Military - Weird - God - War - Prayer - Religion

If the Americans would only take all the money they have spent on this war (Iraq), and spend it like Soros has done on civil societies in these countries, then in 10 years they would have wonderful results.
Orhan Pamuk - Philanthropy - War


Russia does not want confrontation of any kind. And we will not take part in any kind of "holy alliance".
Vladimir Putin -
Russia - War - Religion

On the whole, my family had always adopted a reserved attitude toward Zionism; my great-uncle Edmond had acted on his own in generously supporting Jewish Palestine, for reasons more humanitarian and religious than political. But the devastation caused by the war and the extermination of six million Jews radically changed all of our former attitudes. The idea of a Jewish homeland acquired an intense emotional appeal; I myself became an ardent Zionist..
Guy de Rothschild - Jewish - Zionism

Great men rejoice in adversity, just as brave soldiers triumph in war.
Seneca - War - Challenges - Success

I know I have been portrayed as a general looking for war. Many other headlines speak of that. That’s what people say. But I understand the importance of peace because I saw the horrors of war. That’s how I see it. I lost my best friends in battles.. and I had to make decisions of life and death, of others and myself.
Ariel Sharon - War
- Friendship - Peace

You ask me if we are going to hold the sword all our lives. If we have to do it we will do it, but I hope that it won’t be necessary. There are those among the Palestinians who understand that they will not be able to achieve anything by force. Those that are ready to speak peace, I am ready to talk and negotiate with, as a matter of fact I am in contact with them now.
Ariel Sharon - War - Peace - Achievement

If we are to reach a situation of true peace, real peace, peace for generations, we will have to make painful concessions. Not in exchange for promises, but rather in exchange for peace.
Ariel Sharon - War - Peace - Challenges

I have learned from experience that the sword alone cannot decide this bitter dispute in this land.
Ariel Sharon - War - Problems


I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.
Mother Teresa - War - Peace


Please choose the way of peace.. In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.
Mother Teresa -
War - Peace - Losing - Winning - Death

War can not be avoided until the physical cause for its recurrence is removed and this, in the last analysis, is the vast extent of the planet on which we live. Only though annihilation of distance in every respect, as the conveyance of intelligence, transport of passengers and supplies and transmission of energy will conditions be brought about some day, insuring permanency of friendly relations.
Nikola Tesla - War - Earth - Transport - Peace

War has been good to me from a financial standpoint but I don't want to make money that way. I don't want blood money.
Ted Turner - War - Money


Speed is the essence of war. Take advantage of the enemy's unpreparedness; travel by unexpected routes and strike him where he has taken no precautions.
Sun Tzu - Speed - War
- Enemy - Prepared - Opportunity - Attack

A military operation involves deception. Even though you are competent, appear to be incompetent. Though effective, appear to be ineffective.
Sun Tzu - Battle - Strategy
- War - Military - Deceptive

If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
Sun Tzu - Battle - Planning
- Fighting - Strategy - War - Enemy - Prepared - Attack - Strength - Weakness

He who wishes to fight must first count the cost. When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men's weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be dampened. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your strength.
Sun Tzu - Fighting - Planning
- Losing - Victory - War - Strength - Wish

In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it.
Sun Tzu - Soldier - War
- Enemy - Destroy - Good - Army

If we don’t rededicate ourselves to education with the same attitude Americans have applied to going to the moon and fighting wars, the results will be profound. We will gradually lose our successful workforce.
Meg Whitman - Education -
America - Jobs - War - Determination - Attitude

As long as war is regarded as wicked, it will always have its fascination. When it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.

Oscar Wilde - War
