With due respect for you many thoughtful contributions, I must point out
that it is not hard to come up with some apt-looking statement for just
about any occasion. There is already much of that around on both sides
of the current argument and it does not help any attempt to try to think
more clearly about the issues involved.    (02)

I do appreciate your sentiment.    (03)

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY
