Quotables

From Antiwar.com, which constantly rotates its quotes on every page, even every time you reload a page. Here are three of the best I've recently come across:

There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
– General Smedley Butler

The time has come to stop beating our heads against stone walls under the illusion that we have been appointed policeman to the human race.
– Walter Lippmann

The executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.
– James Madison
