"I am deeply sorry about the ship and the 83 men," said Clark Clifford, a Johnson aide who would become secretary of Defense five weeks later, "but I do not think it is worth a resumption of the Korean War."

Nothing he said before "but" counts. The key phrase is "I do not think it is worth a resumption of the Korean War."

He was willing to see 83 American military tortured to death to avoid a war with North Korea. Imagine a world where a spineless leader allows orcs to torture 83 of his warriors without a response.
