    What’s true is true no matter who said it. Unfortunately for them his predecessors ignored that fact and they were over run because of it. This fact has been proven by history over and over again. Any nation that has had any strategic or other value that has ignored the truth of it has eventually paid for it.

    Speaking to the nature of man, it is very sad but far to often true.

    This is not Heaven, it is Earth, and with it comes both the discovery of reality and the bringing ourselves to it. In other words, those that take a stand, for better or worse, will have to face the opposition -- if no stand is taken, there cannot be any opposition. I think it means that if I really care about something, then I have to be willing to fight for it. And better to be prepared for that fight, than to expect the opposition (in whatever form that may take) to give you fair warning.

    He or she who wants peace must develop his or her own diplomatic abilities. Socialism is the vision of social abilities to create.

    Sillik, you have many followers of your theocratic dribble, Marx, Stallin, Hitler, Mao, etc. In fact, your statement here falls directly in line with "socialism's" dogma: "A lie told often enough becomes the truth." (Lenin)
