Enemy

“Never allow an enemy to live. You… don’t seem to understand that. All you do is allow someone to come back to kill you later.”
— Charles Taylor. Shadow Wars

Never forget that your enemy may be a scoundrel and all of his comrades may hate him, but they would rather see you die than him… Shoot, run, and live.
— Ernest K Gann. In the Company of Eagles

You can’t tell who’s your enemy. You got to shoot kids, you got to shoot women. You don’t want to. You may be sorry that you did. But you might be sorrier if you didn’t. That’s the damn truth.
— Mark Baker. Nam

The friend of my enemy is my enemy. The enemy of my friend is my enemy. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
— Arab proverb.

We have the same biology
But not the same philosophy
And the only thing that’ll save us — me and you
Is if the Russians love their children too…

— From the Sting song Russians

There are no compacts between lions and men, and wolves and lambs have no accord.
— Homer
