War is...

War is a universal wrench for fixing the failing state, an opportunity to massively bury the extras, shamelessly elevate the useful and totally please the idiots.

Losely translated from A. Nevzorov: "Война - это универсальный "разводной ключ" для починки барахлящей государственности: возможность массово прикопать лишних, без стеснения возвысить нужных и тотально порадовать тупых."
