the book meme

as I picked up at Anastasia's...

book Meme Rules

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people. (I don't tag people, do it if you'd like...)

Unless they create a "better state of peace," they may simply fix the conditions under which the fighting will be resumed, at a later time and with new intensity. Or they may confirm a loss of values the avoidance of which was worth a war.
The theory of ends in war is shaped by the same rights that justify the fighting in the first place - most importantly, by the right of nations, even of enemy nations, to continued national existence and, except in extreme circumstances, to the political prerogatives of nationality.

yea-- my dissertation is about war... hmmm..... and that is ONLY three sentences.

Yeah, that's why I thought, but what's the etiquette/technique for "tagging"? Post a comment on another blog? Sorry I'm so dense.
