Quote:
Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum
This is the exact quote.
It's from Flavius Vegetius Renatus book, "Epitoma Rei Militari"

And I agree, it's a great quote!
The Norwegian Army's Officer School has this as it's motto.

A medic said this to a wounded man when Easy Company in WWII was surrounded and outnumbered 2 to 1, by the Germans.

"They've got us surrounded -- the poor bastards."

I love that
