I thought the Vietnam war was an utter, unmitigated disaster, so it was very hard for me to say anything good about it.
I'm fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in.
The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain.
I was the guy who was constantly speaking out against the Vietnam War. I have no regrets about that.
The truth is that I oppose the Iraq war, just as I opposed the Vietnam War, because these two conflicts have weakened the U.S. and diminished our standing in the world and our national security.

It is not patriotic to commit young Americans to war unless our national security clearly requires it.
I was tired. I hadn't slept eight hours in two, three years. I lived on four, five hours of sleep. You can do it during a campaign because thousands are screaming for you. You're getting adrenaline shots each day. Then the campaign ends, and there are no more shots.

From secrecy and deception in high places, come home, America. From military spending so wasteful that it weakens our nation, come home, America.
Somehow politicians have become convinced that negative campaigning pays off in elections.
There is a strong tendency in the United States to rally round the flag and their troops, no matter how mistaken the war.
The Establishment center... has led us into the stupidest and cruelest war in all history. That war is a moral and political disaster - a terrible cancer eating away at the soul of our nation.
