"You know, a thousand dollars ain’t such a bad price for a medium bomber and a crew. If I can persuade the Germans to pay me a thousand dollars for every plane they shoot down, why shouldn’t I take it?…The Germans are not our enemies. Oh, I know what you’re going to say: Sure, we’re at war with them. But the Germans are also members in good standing of the syndicate, and it’s my job to protect their rights are shareholders. Maybe they did start the way, and maybe they are killing millions of people, but they pay their bills a lot more promptly than some allies of ours I could name."

And do all you can,
For they know they can never be free.
