"War is hell." ~W.T. Sherman

Simpson actually posted my comment, and followed it with his usual, typical lies. Sez he:
And so Connie Chastain now sanctifies war atrocities. What a surprise. However, Connie, you might recall Sherman’s actual comment, delivered in 1879 at a commencement at a military academy:Simpson continues:
(Sherman's arse-covering snipped)
Sherman would later return to this theme at a veterans’ reunion in 1880:
(More of Sherman's arse-covering snipped)Simpson concludes: Sherman doesn’t celebrate atrocity and cold-blooded murder, as you do: he deplores it.
I have not celebrated and do not celebrate atrocity and cold-blooded murder; Simpson knows this so he knows he's lying, but when has that ever stopped him?
I simply quoted the orderer of murders and master arsonist of the Union Army.
Note that Sherman, practicing an early form of political correctness, "deplored" it way, way, way after the fact, in 1879 and 1880 when, actually, HE ORDERED, INSTIGATED AND PARTICIPATED IN ATROCITY AND COLD-BLOODED MURDER during the war itself.
Illustrating yet another cornerstone of the yankee (and flogger) mentality -- do as I say, not as I do.
