Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut

This quote was added by weesin
Perhaps, when we remember wars, we should take off our clothes and paint ourselves blue and go on all fours all day long and grunt like pigs. That would surely be more appropriate than noble oratory and shows of flags and well-oiled guns.

You know if it wasn't for those "Well oiled guns" you speak of you wouldn't have the freedom of speech to say what you feel. Remember that the next time you need a service man or a policeman.

War is horrific and insane, and it should not be celebrated.
