"I was looking at them and shaking their hands, I noticed some blood spots still on them. And all of a sudden they disappeared from being human. All of a sudden something happened that turned them into non-human things. I was not talking with humans, I literally was talking with evil, personified...It even became a very difficult ethical problem. Do I actually negotiate with the devil to save people? Or do I wipe it out, shoot the bastards right there? I haven't answered that question yet...

...the pain of killing yourself is nothing compared to the pain of living with this, and it's only by flukes and by chances that some of us don't actually do it.

...I was the commander, my mission failed and hundreds of thousands of people died. I can't find any solace in statements like I did my best. … A commander can't use that as a reference in any operation. He succeeds or he fails and then he stands by to be held accountable. My mission failed and that's that.

Our Age of War and Peace

The same person can both create and take life. We as humans are capable of the most daring, courageous, and inspirational acts, while at the same time have the power to ravage and ruthlessly destroy our neighbors, and our friends. The conflict rests within ourselves, dormant, yet waiting to be manifested. How we manifest that dichotomy is how we define ourselves.
