"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." --John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

Who Said It?

After France and Russia watered down a UN resolution on Iraq, an American politician had this to say:

We know we can't count on the French. We know we can't count on the Russians. We know that Iraq is a danger to the United States, and we reserve the right to take pre-emptive action whenever we feel it's in our national interest.

So who said it? Sen. John F. Kerry, in 1997, on CNN's Crossfire.
