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 and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.reminds one of sri lankan peaceniks who think peace is worth any cost including freedom, justice, human rights, and democracy. they are ever ready to hand over millions of sri lankans in northeast to pussies in pursuit of 'peace'.
