Pacifism is a lovely dream that whithers at dawn's first light.

A list of notable quotes on war from Fort Liberty.
my favorite is:
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill

Neo-Neocon has a great post on this topic today.

there is also something that is worst than war, it is losing a war.
