“If you want to go to war . . . I must be honest and admit that we cannot stand up to you on the battlefield. We don’t have the resources. . . . But you must remember two things. You cannot win because of our numbers; you cannot kill us all. And you cannot win because of the international community. They will rally to our support and they will stand with us.” – Nelson Mandela speaking to a group of Afrikaner generals.
