WAR | Kissinger on How Wars Start
Henry A. Kissinger
"The greatest danger of war seems to me not to lie in the deliberate actions of wicked men, but in the inability of harassed men to manage events that have run away with them." –Henry Kissinger [Secretary of State, 1973-1977], quoted in Sheila Tobias et al., What Kinds of Guns Are They Buying for Your Butter? A Beginner's Guide to Defense, Weaponry, and Military Spending (New York: William Morrow, 1982).
