Leaders on War

Robert E. Lee: “It is well that war is so horrible. For we should grow too fond of it.”

George Bush: “I must say, I’m a little envious.”

“If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed.

“It must be exciting for you … in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You’re really making history, and thanks.”
