Last paragraph in the book Shake Hands with the Devil
As soldiers we have been used to moving mountains to protect our own sovereignty or risks to our way of life. In the future we must be prepared to move beyond national self-interest to spend our resources and spill our own blood for humanity. We have lived through centuries of enlightenment, reason, revolution, industrialization and globalization. No matter how idealistic the aim sounds, this new century must become the Century of Humanity, when we as human beings rise above race, creed, colour, religion and national self-interest and put eh good of humanity above the good of our own tribe. For the sake of the children and of our future. Peux ce que veux. Allons-y. ("Where there's a will, there's a way. Let's go").
An account of the ethnic cleansing in Africa in 1994. In the book, it describes how to risk one soldiers life, 85,000 Rwanadans must die. Not much has changed now in 2006 in relation to risks involved in Africa. It's a sorry comment on our world and those in it.
