Let the soldier yield to the civilian  (Civilian Quotes) Unfortunately, in war, there are casualties, including among the civilian population  (Civilian Quotes) I try to stay a civilian, to live as a human, not as a poet  (Civilian Quotes) If there’s no other alternative, I support civilian trials for terrorists  (Civilian Quotes) To me, the only reason for guns in civilian hands is for sporting purposes  (Civilian Quotes) There is no reason for a civilian to have an automatic weapon  (Civilian Quotes) When it comes to civilian deaths, violent hostilities play no favorites  (Civilian Quotes) It is of first importance that the military be subordinate to civilian government  (Civilian Quotes) The Iraqi government will try and retake some of the cities have that been captured by ISIS. That means the Shiite government dropping bombs on civilian areas, on Sunni cities. There will likely be a response with car bombings here in Baghdad, and this could be a long fight.  (Civilian Quotes) I just felt from personal observation that there is nothing more dislocated or alienated than a lifelong military person trying to cope in civilian life. It’s like two completely separate planets.  (Civilian Quotes) Ultimately, the court is heading to a doctrine of ‘separation of campaign and state.’ This doctrine, like separation of church and state or separation of military and civilian authority, is not explicit in the Constitution but flows naturally from its structure and commitment to freedom and democracy.  (Civilian Quotes) The misunderstandings - or, what really bothers me are the intentional misrepresentations of the facts, which take place on a fairly regular basis. To think that we, people who are involved in counterterrorism, do not care about civilian casualties or deaths or injuries, is just totally, totally wrong.  (Civilian Quotes) The cost of an on-site inspection team would be minuscule compared to war, Saddam would have no choice except to comply, the results would be certain, military and civilian casualties would be avoided, there would be almost unanimous worldwide support, and the United States could regain its leadership in combating the real threat of international terrorism.  (Civilian Quotes) The last thing we want to do is to go into an area and inflict unnecessary civilian casualties. One is too many.  (Civilian Quotes) The First Battle of Fallujah was called off in part because of the intensity of non-U.S. media coverage of civilian casualties from outlets like Al Jazeera.  (Civilian Quotes) Al Qaeda is not a nation-state and it has not signed the Geneva Conventions. It shows no desire to obey the laws of war; if anything it directly violates them by disguising themselves as civilians and attacking purely civilian targets to cause massive casualties.  (Civilian Quotes) I think on civilian casualties they could do more. It’s actually something I’ve discussed with the editors involved. They’re aware of it, and I’m hopeful that there will be more reporting on that.  (Civilian Quotes) McCain fought in Vietnam - I think that he has enough civilian blood on his hands  (Civilian Quotes) In early 1961 a new president, John F. Kennedy, was told by military leaders and civilian officials that the Kingdom of Laos - of no conceivable strategic importance to the U.S. - required the presence of American troops and perhaps even tactical nuclear weapons. Why? Because if Laos fell, Asia would go red from Thailand to Indonesia.  (Civilian Quotes) The thing that really struck me was how many firms that we think of as strictly civilian had ties to the Pentagon. Companies like Apple, Starbucks, Oakley the sunglasses manufacturer. Even Google, and a lot of big corporations like PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive, and Nestle, that you don’t normally think of as defense contractors.  (Civilian Quotes) When I was at the CIA I asked my civilian advisory board to tackle some tough questions. Among the toughest: In a political culture that every day demands more transparency and more public accountability from every aspect of national life, could American intelligence continue to survive and succeed? That jury is still out.  (Civilian Quotes) I fell in love with a civilian. Not an actress and not a famous actress at that. Because then the attention doesn’t double - it grows exponentially. Because then suddenly everybody wants to be in your bedroom. But I don’t really give them anything.  (Civilian Quotes) The word ‘art’ interests me very much. If it comes from Sanskrit, as I’ve heard, it signifies ‘making.’ Now everyone makes something, and those who make things on a canvas with a frame, they’re called artists. Formerly, they were called craftsmen, a term I prefer. We’re all craftsmen, in civilian or military or artistic life.  (Civilian Quotes) As a 22-year Army Veteran who served in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, and as a Civilian Advisor to the Afghan Army in Operation Enduring Freedom, I understand both the gravity of giving the order, and the challenge of carrying it out.  (Civilian Quotes) Sarah Palin is very pro-life of course, unless the life is that of an Iraqi civilian or a wolf running frantically from a roaring helicopter while being strafed with ribbons of automatic weapons fire.  (Civilian Quotes) You can’t really escape the fact that more reasonable gun regulations and procedures need to be in place, a strengthening and tightening of the national background check system. I don’t know why any civilian would ever be able to purchase an assault weapon or the parts that go with it.  (Civilian Quotes) The true history of Vietnamese civilian suffering does not fit comfortably into America’s preferred postwar narrative - the tale of a conflict nobly fought by responsible commanders and good American boys, who should not be tainted by the occasional mistakes of a few ‘bad apples’ in their midst.  (Civilian Quotes) Qatar-based ‘Al-Jazeera,’ the most important news channel in the Arab world, was harshly criticized by high U.S. officials for having ‘emphasized civilian casualties’ during the destruction of Falluja. The problem of independent media was later resolved when the channel was kicked out of Iraq in preparation for free elections.  (Civilian Quotes) We must also ensure that we have the best medical care, education, and support for our military service members and their families, both when they serve and when they return to civilian life.  (Civilian Quotes)
