95. Cry Havoc

“Cry 'Havoc', and let slip the dogs of war, that this foul deed shall smell above the earth with carrion men, groaning for burial”
- William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

Maybe there will come a day when wars are fought between the men who start them and not the poor young sons of a nation. And it will come to pass that the only casualties of war are the soldiers who fight them and not the innocent. Maybe there will come a time when both victor and vanquished are equally culpable and punished for crimes committed against humanity.

But that will leave none innocent. For all war is crime.
