    .. were war criminals
    interviews recorded in the movie The Fog
    of War..
    (the firebombing of Tokyo occurred before the atom bombs..
    100,000 civilians died in one night from American bombs..
    500,000 altogether over several days say some). /Robert McNamara

  • ⋅...but highly placed sources within the Kennedy Administration disagreed: "[T]he assumption that the strategic nuclear balance mattered in any way was wrong... As far as I am concerned, it made no difference... If my memory serves me correctly, we had some five thousand strategic nuclear warheads as against t heir three hundred. Can anyone seriously tell me that their having three hundred and forty would have made any difference? The military balance wasn't changed. I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅It was a perfectly beautiful night, as fall nights are in Washington. I walked out of the president's Oval Office, and as I walked out, I thought I might never live to see another Saturday night. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅I formed the hypothesis that each of us could have achieved our objectives without the terrible loss of life. And I wanted to test that by going to Vietnam. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅It would be our policy to use nuclear weapons wherever we felt it necessary to protect our forces and achieve our objectives. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅Never answer the question that is asked of you. Answer the question that you wish had been asked of you. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅That's one of the major lessons: no president should ever take this nation to war without full public debate in the Congress and/or in the public. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅Neither conscience nor sanity itself suggests that the United States is, should or could be the global gendarme. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅General, you don't have a war plan! All you have is a kind of horrible spasm! /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅All those involved in the firebombing of Tokyo .. were war criminals interviews recorded in the movie The Fog of War.. the firebombing of Tokyo occurred before the atom bombs.. 100,000 civilians died in one night from American bombs.. 500,000 altogether over several days say some. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅Poor planning or poor execution of plans is simply to let some force other than reason shape reality. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅To this day we seem to act in the world as though we know what's right for everybody. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅It is true that at the time [1962] we had a strategic nuclear force of approximately five thousand warheads compared to the Soviet's three hundred. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅One solitary God-centered, God-intoxicated man can do more to keep God's love alive and His presence felt in the world than a thousand half-hearted, talkative busy men living frightened, fragmented lives of quiet desperation. /Robert McNamara

  • ⋅Elimination of nuclear weapons, so naive, so simplistic, and so idealistic as to be quixotic? Some may think so. But as human beings, citizens of nations with power to influence events in the world, can we be at peace with ourselves if we strive for less? I think not. /Robert McNamara

  • ⋅I think the human race needs to think about killing. How much evil must we do to do good? /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅They'll be no learning period with nuclear weapons. Make one mistake and you're going to destroy nations. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅One must take draconian measures of demographic reduction against the will of the populations. Reducing the birth rate has proved to be impossible or insufficient. One must therefore increase the mortality rate. How? By natural means. Famine and sickness /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅The war in Vietnam is going well and will succeed. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅The picture of the world's greatest superpower killing or seriously injuring 1,000 noncombatants a week, while trying to pound a tiny backward nation into submission on an issue whose merits are hotly disputed, is not a pretty one. /Robert McNamara
  • ⋅The greatest contribution Vietnam is making-right or wrong is beside the point-is that it is developing an ability in the United States to fight a limited war, to go to war without the necessity of arousing the public ire. /Robert McNamara
