Confessions of an Ex-Pacifist

"Thirty years later, I've come to realize that while peace is indeed a noble cause and totally worth pursuing, there is sometimes a justification and a necessity for war. No normal person would go out of his or her way looking for this sort of thing. But, unfortunately, it sometimes is laid on our doorstep, like 9/11. Then, turning to pacifism or "peace now" for assistance is like the bird sticking its head in the ground when it sees a wolf running its way."
