War is an Ugly Thing......

Always liked this. Does this sound like anyone, or any group of folks that you know....? I was inspired to post this after reading Sonarman's post over at Submarines Forever this mornin...

"War is an ugly thing. But not the ugliest of things. The
decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling
which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight,
nothing which is more important than his own personal
safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being
free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men
than himself."
-- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
