Back in the sixties and seventies a couple of one liners were,"Nuke em till they glow" and "Kill a Commie for Christ".

Then there was:

Ran across this one by General Thomas S. Power, LeMay's protégé and successor as Commander in Chief of Strategic Air Command. General Power was the model for the Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) character in Dr. Strangelove.

When briefed on a RAND proposal to limit U.S. nuclear strikes on Soviet cities at the beginning of a war, Power responded, "Restraint! Why are you so concerned with saving their lives! The whole idea is to kill the bastards!...At the end of the war, if there are two Americans and one Russian, we win!"

As a youngster he was at 490SMS a couple of years behind me. Wherever he is, I hope he is doing well.
