2018 - On wishing for peace

There's an LJ meme running around about wishing for peace. I saw it in nonethewiser's journal first, but I'm sure it'll spread across my friends list.

Not me. Wishing for peace is nothing more than wishful thinking. To have peace, one must work for it - and, if necessary, be willing to fight and die for it. The bad guys of the world will not allow us to have peace except on their terms, and caving in is not the answer. We are taking the right path, going to war now to secure a stronger peace in the future.

Put another way: Which do you want more: peace on Saddam Hussein's terms, or ours?
