„All interstate wars intensify aggression – maximize it“

—  Murray Rothbard, Context: All interstate wars intensify aggression – maximize it … some wars are even more unjust than others. In other words, all government wars are unjust, although some governments have less unjust claims… As quoted in an interview in Reason magazine (February 1973) http://www.antiwar.com/orig/rothbard_on_war.html.

„Nobody is ever involved in an aggressive war; it's always a defensive war -- on both sides.“

—  Noam Chomsky american linguist, philosopher and activist 1928
Context: No individual gets up and says, I'm going to take this because I want it. He'd say, I'm going to take it because it really belongs to me and it would be better for everyone if I had it. It's true of children fighting over toys. And it's true of governments going to war. Nobody is ever involved in an aggressive war; it's always a defensive war -- on both sides.

„There is no doubt that all nations are aggressive; it is the nature of man.“

—  Henry Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston British politician 1784 - 1865
Context: There is no doubt that all nations are aggressive; it is the nature of man. There start up from time to time between countries antagonistic passions and questions of conflicting interest, which, if not properly dealt with, would terminate in the explosion of war. Now, if one country is led to think that another country, with which such questions might arise, is from fear disposed on every occasion tamely to submit to any amount of indignity, that is an encouragement to hostile conduct and to extreme proceedings which lead to conflict. It may be depended on that there is no better security for peace between nations than the conviction that each must respect the other, that each is capable of defending itself, and that no insult or injury committed by the one against the other would pass unresented.
