Preserve Peace Through Strength December 14, 2007Posted by reaganquotes in Freedom, Military, Peace, Reagan, War.
Churchill’s peace, is in danger. It may serve us to look to the wisdom of his words. He said, and I shall quote him, “The peace will not be preserved without the virtues that make victory possible in war. Peace will not be preserved by pious sentiments expressed in terms of platitudes or by official grimaces and diplomatic correctitude, however desirable these may be from time to time. It will not be preserved by casting aside in dangerous years the panoply of warlike strength…. Great Heart must have his sword and armor to guard the pilgrims on their way.”
Remarks of the President and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher of
the United Kingdom Following Their Meetings, February 26, 1981
