Quotations about the warfare and waging war

Bernard Baruch – Origin of the phrase “Cold War”

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchAs the Soviets thwarted an atomic agreement, lowered their iron Curtain in Eastern Europe, and broke one promise after the other in those early postwar years, it became clear that they were waging war against us. It was a new kind of war, to be sure, in which the guns were silent; but our survival was at stake nonetheless. It was a situation that soon came to be known as the “cold war,” a phrase I introduced in a speech before the South Carolina legislature in April, 1947.

Jame Mattis – Enemies must know what is intollerable

Share this quote:
Jame MattisA lot of crises and even wars, have started from miscalculation. So while it’s important we make clear what we stand for … it’s also important that our adversaries know what we absolutely will not tolerate. And by making that clear, you’re less apt to have somebody stumble into a situation where now we’re forced to take action.

Douglas MacArthur – I know war as few other men

Share this quote:
Douglas MacArthurI know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes… But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.

Dwight Eisenhower – Hate Nazis more than war

Share this quote:
Dwight EisenhowerI doubt whether any of these people [pacifists],with their academic or dogmatic hatred of war, detest it as much as I do.
