Will Rogers on war
« on: March 21, 2019, 09:18:24 am »
"If you want to know when a war might be coming, you just watch the U.S. and see when it starts cutting down on its defenses. It's the surest barometer in the world."--Will Rogers

"We are the only nation in the world that waits till we get into a war before we start getting ready for it."--Will Rogers

"Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it... You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week."--Will Rogers

"I originated a remark many years ago that I think has been copied more than any little thing that I've ever said, and I used it in the follies of 1922. I said America has a unique record. We never lost a war and we never won a conference in our lives. I believe that we could without any degree of egotism, single-handed lick any nation in the world. But we can't confer with Costa Rica and come home with our shirts on."--Will Rogers

"The only real diplomacy ever performed by a diplomat is in deceiving their own people after their dumbness has got them into a war."--Will Rogers

"The French couldn't hate us any more unless we helped 'em out in another war."--Will Rogers

Mr Rogers demonstrated wisdom in a humerus way many times.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

The first two are especially very true.
