    with respect… cease to honor the sacrifice of your soldiers, and you will cease to have soldiers.

    Cease to have soldiers, and you will cease to have a nation.

    Without soldiers you will cease to have an empire, you may cease to have a sovereign state, but the nation endures.

    I hope fervently to outlive the concept of state sovereignty, and I won’t be sorry to outlive the concept of nations.

    So, if you want to frighten me, that sentimental abstraction won’t do the trick, though you’re welcome to try another.
