Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy.
Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society... It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff.
My only goal is to stay focused on my craft and make sure my life is as sharp as it can be to attack any character that is given to me.
Michael K. Williams
Abortion is an attack on the family and the humanity that unites us all.

U.S. computer networks and databases are under daily cyber attack by nation states, international crime organizations, subnational groups, and individual hackers.
John O. Brennan
When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.
Freedom of speech is always under attack by Fascist mentality, which exists in all parts of the world, unfortunately.
As an observer, I react to the realities of Israeli life with both envy and relief. Nobody wants to live under the threat of constant attack from enemies right next door, under ceaseless and often unfair international scrutiny, defending his homeland by day and living with the memories of mass genocide at night.
Hence that general is skilful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skilful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack.

I am the people, I'm not the pig. You got to make a distinction. And the people are going to have to attack the pigs. The people are going to have to stand up against the pigs. That's what the Panthers is doing, that's what the Panthers are doing all over the world.
Sacrificing American soldiers or innocent civilians in an unprecedented preemptive attack on a separate sovereign nation may well prove itself a most temporary medicine.
All I did was ask for rights. I didn't attack anyone. I didn't harass anyone. I didn't oppose the system or the country or the authority. All I said is, 'Why can't I drive?'

Tom Brown, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
