You know, I find that statement interesting, as I learned that "it is better to fight the bad guys on their turf or far from your home. By the time you must defend your family on your own door-step, it is usually way too late".
It is why, although I hate war, and wish humankind could live in harmony and peace (I believe it IS possible), the fact is, the state of human nature and the world as we have known it for thousands of years makes this totally impossible right now....SO, it is FAR better to fight the crazies on THEIR turf then here, and so sometimes war is just the right and only path to take.
