For the Samurai there is no defense only attack.

|You must be mistaken if you think I am a pacifist. I come from a 
|long line of samurai warriors and most of them were not Buddhists.
|I happen to agree with "being for peace is based upon the correct 
|insight." Whenever wars are started, there are three kinds of people:
|1. The first kind are those who speak about doom, final destruction, 
|annihilation. They pump fear into the hearts of people, using fear 
|to control or exploit them.
|2. The second kind of people are those who are very rosy and 
|goody- goody. Everything is beautiful and just right for them. 
|They are 
|satisfied with life. These people allow evil to spread roots and 
|branch out in such an immensity that others find themselves incapable 
|of fighting against it and stopping its growth. Because of their 
|goody-goodiness, they indirectly encourage those kinds of activities 
|which eventually lead people into destruction. These people are not 
|only optimistic fools, but also cowards, who allow evil to grow 
|around them.
|3. The third kind of people are those who see the danger, the 
|corruption, the pollution, and the evil of terrorism and take 
|conscious action to prevent its expansion, without pessimism but with 
|inflamed optimism. They see the situation clearly. They see the 
|difficulties and obstacles on the path. They see the growing power of 
|evil; but they never lose their hope of victory over evil. This third 
|kind of people belongs to the race of heroes. They know that all 
|events going on upon Earth are watched by Higher Forces. They know 
|that there exists higher resources of energy which, in unexpected 
|times, come to the rescue.
