Might is Right

The ruthless and relentless application of might is what subdues populations and wins wars. Anything less, no matter how well intentioned or justified, merely prolongs the conflict, causes unnecessary casualties, and increases the magnitude of human suffering. The failure to seek a quick and decisive victory by all means available is cruel and irresponsible. Since all war is immoral, dividing up weapons into moral and immoral categories is an exercise in stupidity. The only thing that has prevented the use of biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons over the last several decades is the threat of retaliation by the enemy with like agents of mass destruction.

William's Whimsical Words:

The only thing worse than a savage conflict is a prolonged one.
