Kiichi Gotoh Quotes in KidÃ´ keisatsu patorebÃ¢: The Movie 2 (1993)
Kiichi Gotoh Quotes:
Kiichi Gotoh: Commanders sitting far from the front lose touch with the battle that's being fought. They become too optimistic, decisions are made that have no bearing on what the facts might be. This is even more true when the war is being lost.
Inspector General Kaiho: You're talking nonsense, Gotoh. We're not losing a war, there's no war going on!
Kiichi Gotoh: You're proving the point - perfectly! There is a war going on! Declared by Tsuge when he returned home. And he undertook his abortive peacekeeping mission to prepare himself for that!
Kiichi Gotoh: [looking at Arakawa's card] I see you don't bother with an address or telephone number.
Arakawa: It's enough that I know how to contact you.
[about Shinobu's rumored affair with Tsuge]
Arakawa: Did you investigate it?
Kiichi Gotoh: Like hell I did. Not my business. Even a man as manipulative as me wouldn't use an officer's love life.
Arakawa: Is that all she is to you? Remember, I've seen you together.
Kiichi Gotoh: But the powers-that-be couldn't leave it alone. A woman who should be on the straight road to the top, and she's sidetracked to a plot of reclaimed wasteland housing a labor division. There's no other explanation.
Kiichi Gotoh: It may be an immoral peace - maybe an unjust peace. But an unjust peace is still better than a just war.
Arakawa: I share your revulsion about just wars. If there ever was such a thing, it was against the Nazis - our *allies*, Captain Gotoh, our allies. But how many people have died in the cause of what their leaders have called "just wars?" Millions?
