As true now as when first spoken...

"They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people"

I keep running into that John McCain TV commercial where McCain claims that he hates war. The more I see it, the less I believe him. In a very real sense, his political career is based on war and I think he expects war to put him in the White House. His recent comment about how the schedule for bring the troops back from Iraq is "not too important" is probably more indicative of his true feelings.
