Military Quotes

Do not interfere with an army that is returning home. When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.

-- Sun Tzu

The way American male mentality stands; we are generally very protective of our women! In a combat sit. that mentality could cost lives! After all this is not Stalingrad, and the desperation factor is not present. An awful lot depends on the situation of course........
