Quotes of the Day

From my colleague Dr. Andrew Stigler, a professor of national security studies here at the Naval War College:

"If peace were manufactured in factories, there would be a lot more Senators in favor of it." (A timely quote given the leak from the Hill about the Congressional probe into members of the defense appropriations committee.)

"There is no such thing as a diplomatic-industrial complex." (Although given the first steps of private military companies to offer humanitarian and development services, might one develop in the future?) And Parag Khanna might have a different view about a future diplomatic-industrial complex (via Diplopundit)

Would it be cheeky to suggest that there is no diplomatic industrial complex because all the hot air created would add to global warming?
