I make no apologies for spurning the pomp and pageantry that bull-horns Remembrance Sunday. There is much about the war that knows no political or national boundaries; war is a monument to human frailty, not strength. 

In an individual sense, war is universal as is suffering. The last words on a dying serviceman’s lips are never his country, king or queen or president. Nor are they of his father, his comrade or his wife. The last words of the universal soldier are ‘mother’, ‘mutter’, mère, or in Russian, ‘mama’.

Every conflict during the 20th Century with its roots in the self-styled democracies has been a war of territorial, trade or ideological piracy. For this reason I today bow my head in honour of ethnic-survivalists of integrity who despise wars of aggression and recognise war for the piracy it is. The names on this Roll-Call of Honour are of every nationality and diverse ethnicity.

“Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder.” ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley. English Poet.

“War is the terrorism of the rich. Terrorism is the war of the poor.” ~ Writer and Diplomat Peter Ustinov.

“War is when people shoot each other, who don’t even know each other, on the behalf of people who know each other, but don’t shoot each other.” ~ Anon.

“When I was growing up, it was ‘Communists’. Now it’s ‘Terrorists’. So you always have to have somebody to fight and be afraid of, so the war machine can build more bombs, guns, and bullets.” ~ American Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan.

“A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not stake their own.” ~ English Author and Journalist H. G. Wells.

“Here dead we lie because we did not choose, / To live, and shame the land from which we sprung. / Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose, But young men think it is, and we were young.” ~ English Poet A. E. Housman, Here Dead We Lie.

“If you had only known the man you were trying to kill, you would have risked your life, to save his.” ~   U.S Serviceman Harry Pope, WW2 Pacific USS LSM 41, 1944. Japan 1950.

“If those who support aggressive war had seen a fraction of what I’ve seen, if they’d watched children fry to death from Napalm and bleed to death from a cluster bomb, they might not utter the claptrap they do.” ~ British Journalist John Pilger. 

“Strike against war, for without you no battles can be fought! Strike against manufacturing shrapnel and gas bombs and all other tools of murder! Strike against preparedness that means death and misery to millions of human beings! Be not dumb, obedient slaves in an army of destruction! Be heroes in an army of construction.” ~ American Novelist and Peace Campaigner Helen Keller.

“The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own.”  ~ Aldous Huxley, English novelist and critic, 1894-1963.

“When someone says my son died fighting for his country, I say, ‘No, the suicide bomber who killed my son died fighting for his country!”  ~ Father of American Soldier, Chase Beattie killed in Iraq.

“The enemy aggressor is always pursuing a course of larceny, murder, rapine and barbarism. We are always moving forward with high mission, a destiny imposed by the Deity to regenerate our victims while incidentally capturing their markets, to civilise savage and senile and paranoid peoples while blundering accidentally into their oil wells.”  ~ Founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, John Flynn, 1944.

“It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.” ~ General Douglas MacArthur.

“It is yet another Civilized Power with its banner of the Prince of Peace in one hand and its loot-basket and its butcher-knife in the other.  Is there no salvation for us but to adopt Civilization and lift ourselves down to its level?”  ~ American Novelist Mark Twain.

“Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.” ~ Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”~ Frederic Bastiat, (1801-1850) French economist, statesman, and author.

“Battle doesn’t determine who is right. Only who is left. We destroyed fascists, not fascism; men, not ideas. Our triumphs did not serve as evidence that democracy is best for the world any more than Russian victories proved that communism is an ideal system for all mankind.  Only through our peacetime efforts to abolish war and bring a larger measure of freedom and security to all peoples can we reveal to others that we are any better than our defeated opponents.” ~ Peter Bowman, Author ‘Beach Red’.

I SAW A YOUNG MAN WALKING

The youth I met today was old,
A child of early times,
Much water had passed under bridge,
How oft' those church bells chimed.
One hundred or more years, I'd say,
They stood at young man's grave to pray,
And yet I saw the lad today;
I knew he'd lived before.

The boy I met today was old,
His face was known to those,
Who knew and loved the lad before,
The army took his clothes.
I wondered where he since had slept,
Would he remember me?
I saw him last in bloom of youth In 1893.
Perhaps he never had recall,
Of early fate that bled,
The young men in those dreadful wars,
When rich men must be fed:
Now will he once more go to war,
Dodge bullets or their lies;
For lies are shameful epitaphs,
When the young men give their lives.

Michael Walsh

The Swiss scientist Jean-Jacques Babel found that during the last 5,700 years humanity fought 14,500 wars with three and a half billion dead. That is half of today’s world population. In the years 1991 for example there were 52 wars or warlike crises on this earth.
