IF we must go to war…IF we plunge ourselves into yet another conflict, please remember the wisdom of the ages. Remember that there are mothers, fathers, husbands, sons, daughters, wives…these men and women are not mere pawns, they are people and they matter so please, if we must go to war…let us remember:
“War is cruelty. There’s no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.” – William Tecumseh Sherman
Abjectly hated throughout Georgia to this day, the man knew how to make an impact, he was cruel and he was violent, and it made an impact that the South most definitely felt. If we go to war in Iran, or for shit’s sake anywhere else because holy dickballs shit seems to want to pop off everywhere, remember to be violent enough, to be cruel enough, fast enough to our enemies. End them fast, no more 20-30 year war bullshit. Fight it and end it decisively leaving no doubts as to who the victor is.
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” – Sun Tzu
We’ve changed course so many times it’s hard to define what victory was in Afghanistan or Iraq. Let’s make a plan and hold to it for what victory looks like. If we do this, if we define a win and have planned on how to get that win against all odds, doing the first part should be easy…relatively speaking.
“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.”
“No poor bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making other bastards die for their country.”
