That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR.I'm trying to remember. Wasn't there something different about the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II? It'll come to me.
The price of lying
If you can't be honest with yourself about what a "war" is, you probably lose sight of what an "end of war is"--notably, the difference between losing a war, on the one hand, and accepting an enemy's surrender on the other. President Obama explains that releasing five extremely dangerous Taliban operatives is no big deal, because that's what happens at the end of wars: the captured soldiers go home and beat their swords into ploughshares.
