Your Say

Never limit your options in war.

Take advantage of any opportunity that arises to knock your enemy permanently out of the fray.

There's no such thing as a limited war.

The pursuit of victory is the only exit strategy.

You really owe it to yourself to check out the articles from The Objective Standard, but especially the ones on war and foreign policy.


and most especially this article below.


Read it and then ask what do you call politicians that won't defend America, liberal and conservative. The most humane war is a swift, decisive one that resolves the reasons for the war in the first place. Victory is imperative, even for the enemy. The Confederacy was served well by being decisively defeated by Union forces. We have weak and stupid men making weak and stupid decisions.

"Winning is not an option" is a slogan for people uninterested in keeping their heads upon their shoulders.

Which is fine with me for I intend to have them in front of me in any battle; they will not be allowed to retreat. Excellent berms they provide; impervious to small arms fire.
