I'm not a big fan of Churchill, but that's a great quote.

Well Churchill WAS the guy making it hell for millions of starving people in Calcutta by denying them food grains.. Just shows anyone can make nice quotes no matter how bad their character is :D

Your take on Churchill inspired me to do some research and I was shocked to learn more about the Bengal famine and Churchill's role in it. I've always loved the quotes attributed to Churchill and he has always figured as a major historical 'hero' in my mind. The sad truth is, the famine and subsequent loss of millions of lives, was barely a footnote in history classes when I was in school. I guess it proves the old adage that "the conquerors write the history books".
Truly they were complex times with astonishing implications, but it doesn't exonerate the culpability of the major players in the decisions that were made. For his role in fortifying the allies and resolving the conflict, his place in history is secured, but the rest of the story, - the loss of millions of lives due to political/military expediency and racial bias, - must not be obscured, diminished or forgotten. Thanks for the reminder!
