Quotes:
From Fail Safe (2000) (TV)
Prof. Groeteschele: In every war, even a thermonuclear war, you must have a victor and you must have a vanquished. History tells us that the culture which is best prepared, has the best retaliatory policy, and the best defense, will have an ancient and classical advantage.
Brig. Gen. Warren Black: To be victorious...
Prof. Groeteschele: Yes, General. It would be the victor, in that it would be less damaged than its enemy.
Gen. Stark: *We* would be the victor.
Prof. Groeteschele: That would be our hope, General.
Brig. Gen. Warren Black: Groeteschele, your argument doesn't recognize that thermonuclear war is not the extension of policy, it is the end of everything: People, policy, institutions...
Prof. Groeteschele: My argument, General Black, is that if only one of us is to survive a nuclear exchange, I prefer that it be our culture and not the Soviets'. Wouldn't you?
Brig. Gen. Warren Black: Culture? With most of its people dead? It's vegetation burned off? Do you really think that the world you describe *is* a culture? The idea of war has changed since the advent of the Bomb.
Gen. Stark: Yes, but war's function remains the same, Blackie. Whether it's a spear thrown, or a nuclear bomb.
Prof. Groeteschele: War is still the resolution of economic and political conflict.
