I believe, gentlemen, you have reached a point where you are possibly changing the entire system of naval warfare in the world. I believe that the dreams of Jules Verne have practically come to fulfillment, and that the time is not far distant when by submarine warfare it will become possible to stop every hostile invasion of every country in the world by sea, because of the impossibility of doing it successfully. Ebenezer J. Hill
We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years … and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in, and otherwise we have returned home … to live our own lives in peace.

Our landings … have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops …. The troops, the air, and the navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone. Dwight D. Eisenhower
Precisely fifteen years ago, at this very hour, you could still hear the echoes of the last shots of the battle that smashed one of Yankee imperialism's most sinister and traitorous actions against a Latin American people. Giro'n went down in history as the first defeat of Yankee imperialism on this continent …. The option between the past and the future, reaction or progress, treason or loyalty to principles, capitalism or socialism, imperialist domination or liberation, was what was decided at Giro'n on April 19, 1961. Fidel Castro

Our military knows how to invade and conquer a country, but we do not know how to run one. Jim Winkler
I had ordered an efficient military force to take a position between the Nueces and the Del Norte. This had become necessary to meet a threatened invasion of Texas by the Mexican forces, for which extensive military preparations had been made. The invasion was threatened solely because Texas had determined, in accordance with a solemn resolution of the Congress of the United States, to annex herself to our Union, and under these circumstances it was plainly our duty to extend our protection over her citizens and soil. James K. Polk
They’re going to welcome us. It’ll be like the American Army going through the streets of Paris. Dick Cheney
By invading Iraq, the President has undermined the War on Terrorism. Richard A. Clark
The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion. It does not refrain from resorting to all methods, using all evil and contemptible ways to achieve its end. It relies greatly in its infiltration and espionage operations on the secret organizations it gave rise to, such as the Freemasons, The Rotary and Lions clubs, and other sabotage groups. All these organizations, whether secret or open, work in the interest of Zionism and according to its instructions. They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion. Hamas

The nation that has the strongest war footing can easily find an excuse for going to war. Lewis F. Korns

The Soviets have made the same core mistakes that have haunted invaders before and since them: they attempted to impose a centralized order on a highly decentralized nation, and they displayed complete ignorance of the realities of Afghanistan society. Peter Tomsen
A brave nation fights because it must; a cowardly nation fights because it can. Ilana Mercer
The cruelty of the Japanese army in China is one of the blackest pages in history. Barbarian invasions of ancient days furnish no parallel. Readers Digest
Now, you may be asking what I would have women replace the Pill with, since it's obviously so awful. Condoms? Vasectomies? The answer is: nothing. We need the kids if we're to breed enough to keep the Muslim invaders at bay. Breitbart
Crimea's history had made the region an inseparable part of Russia. Vladimir Putin
