In defence, I have cultivated a death wish.
I do not intend to dispute in any way the need for defence cuts and the need for government spending cuts in general. I do not share a not in my backyard approach to government spending reductions.
Strength lies not in defence but in attack.
That a man be willing, when others are so too, as far forth as for peace and defence of himself he shall think it necessary, to lay down this right to all things; and be contented with so much liberty against other men, as he would allow other men against himself.
Hungary is, in a word, in a state of WAR against the Hapsburg dynasty, a war of legitimate defence, by which alone it can ever regain independence and freedom.
The Berlin Defence suited my strategy for the match. I had a defensive strategy - Actually, I had in my pocket some other sharper stuff to fall back on - but first I wanted to try the defensive strategy with Black and it worked so well.
There is always more spirit in attack than in defence.
It was essentially for self defence that we went to war in Afghanistan and would go to war in Iraq.
Men like Hitler and Stalin and their immediate lieutenants cannot plead in defence of their actions that these were justified by the accepted values of that time.
There can be no defence like elaborate courtesy.
Doesn't the fight for survival also justify swindle and theft? In self defence, anything goes.
I don't imagine Heads of Government would ever be able to say I'm not an economist therefore I can't take decisions on matters of the economy; I'm not a soldier I can't take decisions on matters of defence; I'm not an educationist so I can't take decisions about education.
In the wars of the European powers in matters relating to themselves we have never taken any part, not does it comport with our policy so to do. It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defence.
Within NATO, our Defence Capabilities Initiative has identified the essential capabilities all Allies must have for modern operations, and Allies are working to meet those requirements.
We have not sought this conflict; we have sought too long to avoid it; our forbearance has been construed into weakness, our magnanimity into fear, until the vindication of our manhood, as well as the defence of our rights, is required at our hands.
But which is the State's essential function, aggression or defence, few seem to know or care.
Defence was an afterthought, prompted by necessity; and its introduction as a State function, though effected doubtless with a view to the strengthening of the State, was really and in principle the initiation of the State's destruction.
Invincibility lies in the defence; the possibility of victory in the attack.
The history of man is the history of crimes, and history can repeat. So information is a defence. Through this we can build, we must build, a defence against repetition.
So my own suspicion is that the attorney has stopped this prosecution because part of her defence was to question legality and that would have brought his advice into the public domain again and there was something fishy about the way in which he said war was legal.
The names of the new defence panel will be made public after it is okayed by the president.
We've improved on defence immensely and we've improved our center ice immensely. What that translates to, I don't know.
Things have gotten better on defence. It looks like our whole team has gotten better. We just have to go out there and do it on Sundays. We can talk all we want, but until we go out there and prove it, it doesn't mean anything.
Take the head off the chicken, and it runs around. The defence has been doing that way before I got here. It's just a staple. You say, 'Tampa,' and you think of defence.
[Sir Alex Ferguson yesterday backed Gabriel Heinze to emulate Steve Bruce and become a regular goalscorer from Manchester United's defence. Centre-back Bruce netted an incredible 19 goals back in 1991, most of them headers from set-pieces, and Fergie believes fearless Heinze can do the same 14 years on. Heinze got off to the perfect start this season with two goals in United's midweek 3-0 win over Debrecen, which sealed their Champions League place. And Fergie is adamant the Argentine can have the same impact as Bruce in terms of goals.] Gabi is brave enough, that's for sure, ... He's got so much courage. He's certainly prepared to put his head in there for set-pieces, as he showed the other night. He only managed one goal for us last season but he can definitely get a lot more than that. Steve Bruce got 19 for us back in 1991, which was exceptional. Gabi has similar characteristics to Brucie in that he won't hesitate to stick his head in.
