After Patton (Commander General of the United States of New Sparta) slapped two soldiers for apparent insubordination, they were forced to apologize for their provocation. This tongue in cheek response (no pun intended) from solider #1 was deemed not sufficiently apologetic and so the solider was tried for cowardice and shot. Soldier #2's response was far more contrite."Well, it's not every day you meet a man like Patton, is it?"
Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. Or women. Or People. Or Clones. Well, I guess clones are people now too, aren't they? Or drones. Wars can be won by drones too.
