Facts – 7 [Mirror-image]

What a society gets in its armed services is exactly what it asks for.
No more and no less. What it asks for tends to be a reflection of what it is.
When a country looks at its fighting forces it is looking in a mirror:
If the mirror is a true one the face that it sees there will be its own.

[General Sir John Winthrop Hackett, 1962]
