    It is a dishonour to a man for him to do anything less than necessary to preserve his own being. The rules I live by do not have to be applicable to others. I have no issues with double standards unless they work against me
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    American military honour is maintained in a perfunctory manner. Something intimately dishonourable like torturing the unsuspecting and defenseless (and probably innocent) is deemed unacceptable, but a situation in which the shame is somewhat distant from the act, like launching a missile that kills scores of civilians in an attempt to eliminate one or two insurgents, is matter of fact and has become routine.

    Out of sight, out of mind...

    Very true!

    Such techniques of modern warfare are dishonorable and those who undertake them or condone them are acting dishonorably.

    This needs to be said, and repeated until it is udnerstood.
