Trotsky's Chicken Comes Home to Roost

Long before our soldiers saw the value in raising their voices against the insanities they had to endure, first in Vietnam and now in Iraq, there was Leon Trotsky:

If enlightened pacifists attempt to abolish war by means of rational argument, they simply make fools of themselves, but if the armed masses begin to use the arguments of reason against war, this means the end of war.

Think of that as the text for the lesson. The sermon is left as an exercise for the reader!
