Famous quotes containing the words army and/or model:

    It is necessary to turn political crisis into armed crisis by performing violent actions that will force those in power to transform the military situation into a political situation. That will alienate the masses, who, from then on, will revolt against the army and the police and blame them for this state of things.
    Carlos Marighella (d. 1969)

    Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)
