"Wyndam-Matson's guffawing disbelief at the idea of Germany/Japan losing the war, of things turning out as they did in reality, reminds me a lot of some Americans I've spoken to guffawing in disbelief at the idea that their armies and their nuclear attacks on Japan weren't the sole reason that Germany/Japan lost the war." 5 hours, 4 min ago

“For 56 days they had given everything, endured everything; they had achieved the impossible, not once but again and again. They deserved to win; and if they were now being robbed of victory, then the real thieves weren't the People's Army, the 'rats of the Nam Youm', or anyone else in the filth of this last valley, but men who slept between clean sheets far away.”
Martin Windrow, The Last Valley: Dien Bien Phu and the French Defeat in Vietnam

Ian McDonald
“Nothing tells you that you are not on Earth anymore than exhaling at one price and inhaling at another.”
Ian McDonald, Luna: New Moon

“It's not that I want to kill people, I just do it to stop them talking.”
Otsuichi, Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse

Edward Snowden
“Ultimately, saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say.”
Edward Snowden, Permanent Record

“Unlike the huge majority of the current generation in the West, the men on both sides at Dien Bien Phu did not live at a time or in places where they enjoyed the luxury of disregarding [that war is what human beings do]; and we, who are lifelong civilians, have not earned the right to sit in judgement over them.”
Martin Windrow, The Last Valley: Dien Bien Phu and the French Defeat in Vietnam
