General George Patton Knew More About War Than Most

Had this to say about war:

"Don't fight a battle if you don't gain anything by winning"

& "The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his."

Others also knew more about war that those of us sitting in our comfortable homes tiptapping away on the blog

Bertrand Russel also had a point:

"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."

Douglas MacArthur:

"The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war."

Questions ring for me:

1) Are we gaining anything by fighting the Iraq war?

2) Were we right to go in?

3) Was there another alternative?

4) Are people praying for peace?

5) When & how will it end?
