"An idea is growing in foreign policy circles in Washington … that there is no

turning back. We are stuck in Iraq and Afghanistan for 25 to 40 years, we are

embedded in our prideful unilateralism, and nothing can return us to more

traditional American values and principles of action. The hubristic creators of

this “inevitability” planned it this way. … Their failures in Iraq have not

stopped the fanatic, power-hungry neoconservatives. … The hard-liners who

dominate this administration … have led us to eternal conflict with Muslims."

"...there is no provision in the Charter itself that contemplates ending war. It is true the Charter provides for force to bring peace, but such use of force is itself war... The Charter is a war document not a peace document... Not only does the Charter Organization not prevent future wars, but it makes it practically certain that we shall have future wars, and as to such wars it takes from us the power to declare them, to choose the side on which we shall fight, to determine what forces and military equipment we shall use in the war, and to control and command our sons who do the fighting."

"The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had

passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and

grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which … pushed the

mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I."

-- Major General J.F.C. Fuller
