We're not just going to shoot the bastards. We're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks". - General George S. Patton

We're not just going to shoot the bastards. We're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks". - General George S. Patton

This quote, while true, is pretty sad.  A soldier is a pawn, and so is the guy shooting at him.  They both probably will have families at home, and maybe children and even grandchildren.  (Like my brother.)  It's a bleak thing for a pawn to kill another pawn, when all either of them are doing is following orders.  Greed, religion, prejudice, etc. are great at starting wars, but terrible for stopping them.  Only the will to stop it will have any effect at all.

This makes me sad. Why can't we just all be friends? Why can't we realize that opinions are just opinions- one is no better than any other one?

"Document everything, leave nothing to chance... because one day, some cockroach will crawl up out of the latrine and deny all this ever happened, God Damn Them." - Gen. George Patton, spoken during visit to Buchenwald.
