A man may be tempted to fight dirty to survive, but honour is everything. You follow the rules of war for you, not for your enemy. You fight by rules to keep your humanity. So you never shoot your enemy if he is floating down on a parachute. If I ever see you doing that, I will shoot you down myself.
Good words. Good sentiments. And a nearly forgotten word; honor.
This is today it seems an archaic idea this notion of honor. I know I see precious little evidence of it in our countrys leadership. I certainly see no mention of it in most of the products of the entertainment industry. The cheap imitations of the concept you do see is typically of the Leftist variety where some evil industrialist is stopped from polluting the environment by a green warrior.
I am often tempted to despair for the survival of the Republic.
I see precious little evidence of it in those who piss on the corpses of enemy dead. And in those who condone it.
