Kosovo War quotes by Fatos Nano

Kosovo War quotes by Jean Bricmont
#2. Fallujah was a Guernica with no Picasso. A city of 300,000 was deprived of water, electricity, and food, emptied of most of its inhabitants who ended up parked in camps. Then came the methodical bombing and recapture of the city block by block. When soldiers occupied the hospital, The New York Times managed to justify this act on grounds that the hospital served as an enemy propaganda center by exaggerating the number of casualties. And by the way, just how many casualties were there? Nobody knows, there is no body count for Iraqis. When estimates are published, even by reputable scientific reviews, they are denounced as exaggerated. Finally, the inhabitants were allowed to return to their devastated city, by way of military checkpoints, and start to sift through the rubble, under the watchful eye of soldiers and biometric controls. #Quote by Jean Bricmont
Kosovo War quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#3. There was a time in my life when I did a fair bit of work for the tempestuous Lucretia Stewart, then editor of the American Express travel magazine, Departures. Together, we evolved a harmless satire of the slightly driveling style employed by the journalists of tourism. 'Land of Contrasts' was our shorthand for it. ('Jerusalem: an enthralling blend of old and new.' 'South Africa: a harmony in black and white.' 'Belfast, where ancient meets modern.') It was as you can see, no difficult task. I began to notice a few weeks ago that my enemies in the 'peace' movement had decided to borrow from this tattered style book. The mantra, especially in the letters to this newspaper, was: 'Afghanistan, where the world's richest country rains bombs on the world's poorest country.'

Poor fools. They should never have tried to beat me at this game. What about, 'Afghanistan, where the world's most open society confronts the world's most closed one'? 'Where American women pilots kill the men who enslave women.' 'Where the world's most indiscriminate bombers are bombed by the world's most accurate ones.' 'Where the largest number of poor people applaud the bombing of their own regime.' I could go on. (I think number four may need a little work.) But there are some suggested contrasts for the 'doves' to paste into their scrapbook. Incidentally, when they look at their scrapbooks they will be able to re-read themselves saying things like, 'The bombing of Kosovo is driving the Serbs int #Quote by Christopher Hitchens

#4. We must endeavor to forget our former love for them [the British] and to hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson

Kosovo War quotes by Nancy B. Brewer
#13. The curtains were not yet drawn and with the moonlight spreading across the room, I could see clearly. I undressed and slipped a soft cotton gown over my naked body. I pulled the blanket off the foot of my bed, covered my shoulders and wa ... lked out on the balcony. The cool night air blowing through my hair served as a reminder that only a hint of summer remained in this year of 1860. #Quote by Nancy B. Brewer
Kosovo War quotes by Alexander Blok

Kosovo War quotes by Jennifer Johnston
#16. Because I am an officer and a gentleman they have given me my notebooks, pen, ink and paper. So I write and wait. I am committed to no cause, I love no living person. The fact that I have no future except what you can count in hours doesn't seem to disturb me unduly. After all, the future whether here or there is equally unknown. So for the waiting days I have only the past to play about with. I can juggle with a series of possibly inaccurate memories, my own interpretation, for what is worth, of events. There is no place for speculation or hope, or even dreams. Strangely enough I think I like it like that. #Quote by Jennifer Johnston
Kosovo War quotes by Henry Adams
#17. It is always good men who do the most harm in the world. #Quote by Henry Adams
Kosovo War quotes by Cormac McCarthy

Kosovo War quotes by Kate Quinn
#19. Maybe," Nina had yawned. Who cares? It was war. Day was night. Life was death. Sorrow was joy. Who cared about anything but the now? (39%) #Quote by Kate Quinn
Kosovo War quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#20. I watch him walk away with the only family he has left and I know why Adam joined the army.
I know why he suffered through being Warner's whipping boy. I know why he dealt with the horrifying reality of war, why he was so desparate to run away, so ready to run way as soon as possible. Why he's so determined to fight back.
He's fighting for so much more than himself. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Kosovo War quotes by Henry A. Kissinger
#21. You should not go to war for the privilege of withdrawal. You need to define your objective and the outcome, and it cannot be the removal of one man. #Quote by Henry A. Kissinger
Kosovo War quotes by Boris Pasternak
#22. The rulers of your minds indulge in proverbs, but they've forgotten the main one, that love cannot be forced, and they have a deeply rooted habit of liberating people and making them happy, especially those who haven't asked for it. You probably fancy that there's no better place in the world for me than your camp and your company. I probably should even bless you and thank you for my captivity, for your having liberated me from my family, my son, my home, my work, from everything that's dear to me and that I live by. #Quote by Boris Pasternak
Kosovo War quotes by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Kosovo War quotes by Rosa Brooks
#27. We prefer to imagine brutal wars and atrocities as events that "just happen" every now and then, much like tornadoes or lightning strikes; this metaphor suggests that we can't generalize from them, since they are radically discontinuous with ordinary life. But wars and atrocities do not "just happen": societies and individuals slide into them, little by little, one tiny decision or omission at a time. (p214) #Quote by Rosa Brooks
Kosovo War quotes by Richard Engel
#28. We were meat to be bought and sold. Speaking Arabic made me a curious and unusual product. I didn't want to be special. I didn't want them to be curious about me. #Quote by Richard Engel
Kosovo War quotes by Tom Standage
#29. March 1774 by declaring the port of Boston closed until the East India Company had been compensated for its losses. This was the first of the so-called Coercive Acts - a series of laws passed in 1774 in which the British attempted to assert their authority over the colonies but instead succeeded only in enraging the colonists further and ultimately prompted the outbreak of the Revolutionary War in 1775. It is tempting to wonder whether a government less influenced by the interests of the company might have simply shrugged off the tea parties or come to some compromise with the colonists. #Quote by Tom Standage
Kosovo War quotes by Karen DeCrow
#30. No matter what is happening in life or in the world - war, natural disaster, poor health, pain, the death of loved ones - if existence is filled with art, music and literature, life will be fulfilling, a joy. #Quote by Karen DeCrow

#33. The instant you take the lead in the tug-of-war with your ego, enlightenment becomes your state of being. #Quote by Pooja Ruprell
Kosovo War quotes by Kelseyleigh Reber
#34. And it seemed as though for a moment, the world encapsulated them in a giant sigh. As if the world was exhausted by humanity - by the bellows of war and bullets, of hateful cries and grieving tears. Of all the pain, the endless pain humanity had brought into its peaceful existence. A great heaving sigh to wash it all away. But like the sea, when washed away, war only crashed harder, a surging line of arched backs and brackish tears. #Quote by Kelseyleigh Reber
Kosovo War quotes by Anonymous
#35. Long hast thou lain in dreams of war - Lift from the dark your eyeless gaze! Stand beneath the sky once more, Where seas of suns spill all ablaze! #Quote by Anonymous
Kosovo War quotes by Jeanne Safer
#36. People are more likely to fall intensely in love when they are anxious and their self-esteem is lowest.... Feeling inadequate, unhappy, and empty are virtual prerequisites for falling and staying desperately in love; at least temporarily, the ecstasy of desire seems to cure everything that ails you. There is a connection between aversive states of mind -- loneliness, shame, even grief and horror -- and a propensity to feel overwhelming passion; this is one reason why romances blossom in times of war or natural disasters, as well as during the private disasters of our everyday lives. #Quote by Jeanne Safer
Kosovo War quotes by Chris Matthews
#37. I can't find a reason to be for this war. I've looked, and I can't, so I'm not. #Quote by Chris Matthews
Kosovo War quotes by Michael Scheuer
#38. In terms of Iraq, al Qaeda valued Iraq because we destroyed a government it wanted destroyed and because we put soldiers on the ground and forces that they could attack. Al Qaeda is basically an insurgent organization that was formed on the model of the Afghan groups. And being bred in that war, they value a contiguous safe haven as much as anything else. #Quote by Michael Scheuer
Kosovo War quotes by Breyten Breytenbach
#39. Better still - your history has shown how powerful a moral catharsis expressed through popular resistance to injustice can sometimes be; I have in mind the grassroots opposition to the Vietnam War. #Quote by Breyten Breytenbach
Kosovo War quotes by Kim Jong-un
#40. Past records of inter-Korean relations show that confrontation between fellow countrymen leads to nothing but war. #Quote by Kim Jong-un
