"YOU must become so notorious for bad things that when you come into an
area people will tremble in their sandals. Anyone can do beatings and
starve people. I want your unit to find new ways of torture so terrible
that the screams will frighten even crows from their nests and if the
person survives he will never again have a night's sleep."
