Conversely, one could say that Patton got it right:Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria miles alius mori
It is sweet and fitting for the other soldier to die for his country.
[Stargzer waits for BD to correct his Latin ]
If BD - or perhaps Garzo - will pardon me for rushing in where he/they might fear to tread, I think Patton's thought might be better expressed thusly :
Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria sua mileti alio fecere mori
I gladly accept correction - but hopefully one not quite as severe as that proposed by General Patton....
