EU COMMISSIONER CHRIS F. PATTEN vs. US GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON
PATTEN: "I don't know but I think it's very dangerous when you start taking up absolutist positions and simplistic positions."
PATTON: "Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed."
PATTEN: "There is more to be said for trying to engage and to draw these societies into the international community than to cut them off."
PATTON: "We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-bitches. We're going to rip out their living ***damned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks."
PATTEN: "However mighty you are, even if you're the greatest superpower in the world, you cannot do it all on your own."
PATTON: "We have the finest food, the finest equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in the world. Why, by ***, I actually pity those poor sons-of-bitches we're going up against. By ***, I do."
PATTEN: "We have realised that we have to tackle the root causes of terrorism and violence."
PATTON: "The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home."
