Something about war

Here's an observation by one of the great Quaker intellectuals of the 20th Century. I think it is worth remembering:

In any case, fighting will not settle whether the claims were just or unjust. It will only settle which nation can mobilize and handle its fighting forces and its economic forces the better.

- Rufus Jones
