“I wonder why we had to fight for nearly four long years just to be able at the end to say how stupid the whole thing was. Absolutely nothing had been accomplished, unless by having fought this war we will stop the next and the next, until suddenly people realize that there aren’t any more wars. No matter whether it was Japan or Germany or Italy that I was looking at that morning, it still is a horrible spectre, partly because killing people just doesn’t make sense no matter how you look at it, and partly because the same thing might happen to our own country and our own people and the homes they live in.”
