    Apparently the alarmists take a Shakespearean point of view.

    “let me have war say I; it exceeds peace as far as day does night; it’s spritely, waking , audible, and full of vent. Peace is a very apoplexy, lethargy: mulled, deaf, sleepy, insensible; a getter of more bastard children than war’s a destroyer of men.”

    • Robert E. Lee said, “It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.” Only someone from the South, full of Southern pride, that ordered things like Pickett’s Charge, could talk like that when he was not on the battlefront, but watching from his horse on a hilltop.

      • BTW, for those who don’t know, Pickett didn’t want to do Pickett’s Charge. He wasn’t so fond of war, and he cared more about his men. But Lee ordered him and left no alternative.

        Well, there is a debate to that, but I take no position, one way or the other. AAM, I’m not sure you’re taking the meaning away that Lee wanted to convey. But again, it is subject to interpretation. I put more emphasis on the word “terrible” than the word “fond”, but clearly the statement doesn’t put weight to either.
