The quiet american full movie

Any scourge is preferable to it. We all have to be concerned about terrorism, but you will never end terrorism by terrorizing others. The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my own government. The chain reaction of evil-wars producing more wars must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation. I have condemned any organizer of war, regardless of his rank or nationality. Nothing good ever comes of violence. Wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows. The bombs in Vietnam explode at home; they destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the postive affirmation of peace. It is not enough to say we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos. Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. We have guided missiles and misguided men. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. I hate those men who would send into war youth to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of those old men, making their wars that boys must die. One create freedom by an invading force. Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional. Politics and crime are the same thing. About the quote : This line is spoken by Al Pacinos character in the Francis Ford Coppola film The Godfather: Part III, script by Coppola and Mario Puzo. Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. Follow not the person carrying flag nor sword, for they will invariably lead you to a cliff and a mighty fall. The enormous gap between what US leaders do in the world and what Americans think their leaders are doing is one of the great propaganda accomplishments. To kill a man is not to defend a doctrine, but to kill a man. One day the end of the world will come as a result of a justified war. An empire founded by war has to maintain itself by war. If you want to make peace, you dont talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. The State thrives on war unless, of course, it is defeated and crushed expands on it, glories in it. All government wars are unjust. It is in war that the State really comes into its own: swelling in power, in number, in pride, in absolute dominion over the economy and the society.
