Yeah, WMD... right. Take us down Caesar Bush!

“To me nothing could more tragically demonstrate our complete and utter moral bankruptcy than for us to deliberately initiate a “preventive war.� Once we take that absolutely fatal step our civilization would be doomed. We would have to rely on conquest for our survival from then on, until our society crumbled as the empires of Alexander and of Rome crumbled from their own inner decay. In all the history of the world no civilization based on conquest has long endured. America would be no exception."

-Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, 1957
