i always find this quote confusing

"If you want peace, prepare for war"...

well then if you want war, prepare for what?

if the answer to that is to also prepare for war, then shouldnt be the quote be "prepare for war regardless whether you want peace or not" ?

I think the people seeking war don't need instructions, they have a simpler path to victory

"If you seek war, keep matching thataway!"

Always be prepared. World events show that some countries are more prepared than others.
