"I'd like to have two armies: one for display composed of shiny, happy people of both genders and all sexual orientations, with very stylish uniforms, especially for the mothers-to-be; one where everyone is politically correct, non-judgmental, and always very careful to be considerate of others; one where feelings will always be more important than difficult, physically demanding training that upsets people when they fail. Setting the example for others on how to coexist, this army and its delightful Soldiers Show would appear at every cultural diversity festival in the country, march in wonderful parades for newly-elected liberal politicians, and serve as world-class peace-keepers by helping hostile factions in third-world countries to discuss their grievances.
"The other would be the real one, composed entirely of young men trained to be warriors in the truest sense of the word. They would not be put on display, but would be clad in camouflage and trained to kill by any means.
They would be pushed beyond normal human limits, and impossible efforts would be demanded of them. And when the time came to go to war, after the first army was defeated, the second army would not be.
"That's the army in which I should like to fight."
With respects to Jean L'artre Guy French Commando, Soldier, Journalist
