IF YOU WOULD HAVE PEACE, PREPARE FOR WAR

An unarmed person or nation can be an easy prey to any enemy that is armed and ready to fight. In the present state of the world a nation cannot be safe if it relies for its safety solely on the honour and good will of other nation. One has only to remember how India, which instead of arming herself, had relied entirely on the friendliness and honour of China, was attacked and humiliated by that treacherous nation in 1962. So it is perfectly true that only a nation that is well armed and ready to resist and repel aggression can enjoy peace and security.
