Perpetual Peace*

This is the first installment of a series i ll be publishing in a new magazine (it's still under construction, as is its site, which you can visit for a first glimpse anyway: www.galera.gr.
The magazine, called "Galera",(greek word for those Roman ships running on slavepower), is put up by seasoned veterans and talented beginners in the areas of comics, political cartoons and journalism, all equally pissed off by the current state of the world and not finding it easy to express this in a magazine market mostly run by advertisers.
Anything i can translate in Enlgish, i ll post from time to time.I made a quick translation of this one, so don't crucify me for any mistakes:

* The title refers to Gore Vidal's excellent book "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace".I 'd be grateful if someone did my homework for me and remind me whom the original phrase belongs to.

I really like your work, and this is a fantastic blog! I think the phrase is Orwell's. If not, Michael Moore quotes a passage by him expressing a very similar-sounding sentiment at the end of F911.

Sounds likely, quieto.Mr. Vidal's book attributes the phrase to histrorian Charles A. Beard.I wouldn't be surprised if the phrase has older origins,and it sure sounds Orwellian.
