    What a cruel thing war is... to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors. Robert E. Lee

    “I am sick and tired of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.”
    From “On Killing” by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman

    Sherman

    The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.
    Douglas MacArthur

    It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.
    Douglas MacArthur

    I don't have any of my own quotes about war.

            The U.K.’s arms sales make up 4% of the global market, SIPRI says. 21% of the U.K.’s weapons exports went to the U.S., including MP aircraft radars. The U.S. is the largest of UK’s recipients

                Not really. Many of our advancements have come through military tech. Would they have come in a time of total peace for the last 3000 years? Maybe but our wars have accelerated our advancement.
