“I suddenly felt like the Grinch feels when he discovers what Chrismas is all about. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I had a purpose being in the Navy. It wasn’t about money and rank or prestige. It was about raising the flag. We do what we do because no one else can or will do it. We fight so others can sleep at night. And I had forgotten that.”
Timothy Ciciora, The Right Words at the Right Time Volume 2: Your Turn!
 
 
 
 
“We live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns.”
Aaron Sorkin, A Few Good Men
 
 
 
 
“The Japanese fought to win – it was a savage, brutal, inhumane, exhausting and dirty business. Our commanders knew that if we were to win and survive, we must be trained realistically for it whether we liked it or not. In the post-war years, the U.S. Marine Corps came in for a great deal of undeserved criticism in my opinion, from well-meaning persons who did not comprehend the magnitude of stress and horror that combat can be. The technology that developed the rifle barrel, the machine gun and high explosive shells has turned war into prolonged, subhuman slaughter. Men must be trained realistically if they are to survive it without breaking, mentally and physically.”
Eugene B. Sledge, With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa
 
 
 
 
“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any treat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”
Douglas MacArthur
 
 
 
 
“The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them. For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck. Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people – and people of other nations – for a paycheck. To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn’t entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy Kassem
 
 
 
 
“The participation if women in some armies in the world is in reality only symbolic. The talk about the role of Zionist women in fighting with the combat units of the enemy in the war of 5 June 1967 was intended more as propaganda than anything real or substantial. It was calculated to intensify and compound the adverse psychological effects of the war by exploiting the backward outlook of large sections of Arab society and their role in the community. The intention was to achieve adverse psychological effects by saying to Arabs that they were defeated, in 1967, by women.”
Saddam Hussein, The Revolution and Woman in Iraq
 
 
 
 
“Question the answers, I repeated every class. Reevaluate your conclusions when the evidence changes.”
Craig M. Mullaney, The Unforgiving Minute: A Soldier’s Education
 
 
 
 
“Maxim 18:
If the officers are leading from in front, watch out for an attack from the rear.
-The Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries”
Howard Tayler

Lilia Garcia:
For those of you who think he is just freestyling or just making unnecessary “noise” hes actualy symbolizing war time. If you actually listen, he imitates bombs being thrown and exploding, guns being shot, chiaos, and innocent people screaming in terror and dieing, (hence taps being played after awhile) Its actually really deep. ❤️

Cool Gus Says: Don’t Send the Nuclear Launch Codes Out With the Laundry, stupid human | Bob Mayer

Seriously. That’s so much worse than peeing on the rug. But it happened. Because there wasn’t a dog there standing watch. And much stranger things have happened with the nuclear launch …

The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
G.K. Chesterton
 
 
 
 
“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”
Heraclitus

“Is killing a known terrorist wrong? I ask this, did the terrorist allow any of his victims quarter? No, then allow him no quarter, and hoist the black flag.”
