Quote 1047

And say, finally, whether peace is best preserved by giving energy to the government or information to the people. This last is the most certain and the most legitimate engine of government. Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them. And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this. They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

— Thomas Jefferson, c. 1787

Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

— Aristotle 384-322 BC

Quote 1053

Quote AssHatZombie:
So you prefer our boys dying daily on these suicidal patrol missions where they are sitting ducks. Now we know where you stand.

We sure do, and it's miles above you.

Yes, if my two choices are genocide or our soldiers (some dying are women, but I know you refuse to acknowledge that as it threatens what little shred of masculinity you have) dying daily, I choose our soldiers dying daily. I do not place any higher value on the life of an American or of a white person, than I do on the life of a non-American or a brown person. Now, I do not know if it is racism or nationalism leading you to this clearly psychopathic position, but knowing you it's both. Because I value all human lives, I cannot conclude that it would be better to slaughter millions to save thousands.

My first "preference" of course, since I am smarter than you are, was not to go into Iraq in the first place, thus avoiding the false choice you present. And I reject your false choice at any rate, and choose instead, our withdrawal from Iraq.
