    On a more serious note!.... "My knowledge of pain, learned with the sabre, taught me not to be afraid. And just as in dueling when you must concentrate on your enemy's cheek, so, too, in war. You cannot waste time on feinting and sidestepping. You must decide on your target and go in." Otto Skorzeny.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Not WW2 I know, but it moves me, and sums up almost every world conflict there has been.

    "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
    ( and you have to do the voice to make it work )

    "The losses were heavy, but all ranks would willingly undertake another operation under similar conditions…We have no regrets."
    Major General Robert Urquhart

    and....

    "We want to get the hell over there. The quicker we clean up this Goddamned mess, the quicker we can take a little jaunt against the purple pissing Japs and clean out their nest, too. Before the Goddamned Marines get all of the credit."
    General George S. Patton.

    The reference to 'purple piss' is insinuating that the Japannese were all infected with STD'S. If Patton was not a general I think he would have made a good comedian!!

    What a shame, that's effectively killed this thread off.
