->'''Argel Tal:''' I have never pretended to be anything but weak, Kharn. I don't enjoy war, yet I fight. I don't relish torture, yet I inflict it. I don't revere the gods, yet I serve their holy purpose. Humanity's weakest souls will always cling to the words "I was just following orders". They cower behind those words, making a virtue of their own weakness, lionising brutality over nobility. I know that when I die, I'll have lived my whole life shrouded by that same excuse.\\
'''Kharn:''' So will I. So will any Space Marine.

->'''Teal'c:''' Nothing I have done since turning against the Goa'uld will make up for the atrocities I once committed in their name. Somewhere deep inside you, you knew it was wrong. A voice you did not recognize screamed for you to stop. You saw no way out. It was the way things were. They could not be changed. You tried to convince yourself the people you were hurting deserved it. You became numb to their pain and suffering. You learned to shut out the voice speaking against it.\\
'''Tomin:''' There's always a choice.\\
'''Teal'c:''' Indeed, there is.\\
'''Tomin:''' I chose to ignore it.\\
'''Teal'c:''' Yet you sit here now.\\
'''Tomin:''' I sit here...and I cannot imagine the day when I will forgive myself.\\
'''Teal'c:''' Because it will never come. One day, others may try to convince you they have forgiven you. That is more about them than you. For them, imparting forgiveness is a blessing.\\
'''Tomin:''' How do you go on?\\
'''Teal'c:''' [[TheAtoner It is simple. You will never forgive yourself. Accept it. You hurt others. Many others. That cannot be undone. You will never find personal retribution. But your life does not have to end. That which is right, just, and true can still prevail. If you do not fight for what you believe in, all may be lost for everyone else. But do not fight for yourself, fight for others—others that may be saved through your effort. That is the least you can do.]]

->''Pulled into war to serve a vision\\
That’s supposed to last a thousand years\\
Part of a machine unstoppable\\
As merciless as tidal waves\\
\\
Were they the victims of the time\\
Or proud parts of larger goals?\\
Propaganda of the Reich, masterful machine\\
\\
Time and again the battle rages on\\
Beyond the gates of misery\\
As casualties rise and millions die around them\\
Did they see it all?\\
\\
Crazy madmen on a leash\\
Or young men who lost their way?\\
Grand illusions of the Reich\\
May seem real at times\\
\\
Panzers on a line\\
Form the Wehrmacht’s spine\\
Lethal grand design\\
What about the men executing orders?''
