<div><span lang="la">&gt; If you want peace, prepare for war</span></div>

<div><span lang="la"><br></span></div>roj DaneHchugh vaj yIQojrup - "If you want peace, prepare to wage war" works for me.<br>Also, to state this without an imperative prefix - roj DaneHchugh vaj bIQojrup - is like stating "If you want peace, then you are ready to wage war." The same construction as bIje'be'chugh vaj bIHegh - "If you are not buying, then you are dying."<br></div><br></div></div> 		 	   		  </div></body>
