"Morgan encouraged his sharpshooters to pick off enemy officers, whereas a kind of gentleman's agreement existed in European wars to spare the opposing leaders. As an Indian fighter Morgan had concluded that there was nothing cavalier about war; it was an ugly business, with one's chances of winning enhanced by crippling an opponent in any way possible, not by following time honored rules and customs." Daniel Morgan - Revolutionary Soldier by Don Higginbotham
Hard Things are coming our way, folks.
That whole Countervalue concept seems to make many Patriots slip into avoidance behavior, and from what I have seen, causes serious brain cramps. Whatever your position, get it sorted now. Everything you love is under threat of destruction. They are coming.
My thanks to Alan for the timely reminder of the quote above.

If you can envision it, you might just have a better chance of surviving it.ReplyDelete
The Daniel Morgan quote is an excellent choice, as is W.T. Sherman's "War is hell" and also Gen. George S. Patton's "I intend to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of casualties in the shortest amount of time that I can."ReplyDelete
