[Curtis] LeMay said, "If we'd lost the war, we'd all have been prosecuted as war criminals." And I think he's right. He, and I'd say I, were behaving as war criminals. LeMay recognized that what he was doing would be thought immoral if his side had lost. But what makes it immoral if you lose and not immoral if you win?

I'm watching The Fog of War in brief segments as a study break, and that quote struck me.

It's an incredible piece of cinema. Take a look, if you haven't already.
