  1. It’s true becasue when people are educated and happy and free they are LESS likly to participate in or start wars. Man — I wish we had invested in the education of Afghanistan’s children before the Taliban set up all those Madrassas to train terrorists. Perhaps if there was some future for the people they would not turn to killing themselves to kill others.

  2. The implication is that Edwards is a naive liberal yuppie, while Patton was an admirable blood-and-guts hero whom we could use right now.

    Yeah, right. Here’s a choice Patton sentiment:

    “The difficulty in understanding the Russian is that we do not take cognizance of the fact that he is not a European, but an Asiatic, and therefore thinks deviously. We can no more understand a Russian than a Chinese or a Japanese, and from what I have seen of them, I have no particular desire to understand them except to ascertain how much lead or iron it takes to kill them.”

    Regarding Holocaust victims, he also corrected the mistaken notion that “the Displaced Person is a human being, which he is not, and this applies particularly to the Jews, who are lower than animals”

    Yeah, I’m sooo nostalgic for the good old days when manly men with racist views (this describes the US and German forces) stormed about the world, killing people by the hundreds of thousands. Maybe we can bring back Hiroshima, too!

  3. If Patton were in charge of today’s Army, we would have an even bigger PTSD problem than there already exists. He once accused a soldier with “shell shock” of faking it, and slapped him in his face.
