Ben Carson Hitler quote right on

I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed - Ben Carson

In honor of Ben Carson's above quotation, I would like to propose a toast:

I would like to toast the many Jews who fought in the Warsaw ghetto uprising, and to the thousands of Jewish partisan fighters of World War II. You did not fight in vain. You did not die in vain. By your bravery of armed resistance you helped prevent Hitler from accomplishing his goals. And to the Jews of the Sobibor extermination camp who rose up and did the best they could with only knives and axes. You too helped stop Hitler and his plan to kill all the Jews. By your fighting back, all of you slowed down the Nazi death machine that annihilated thousands of Jews daily. If your contributions to the war effort shaved the length of the war by only a few days, you were responsible for saving multitudes. And had there been more guns available, and had the Jews of the Holocaust known for sure what Hitler had in store for them, no doubt there would have been more of you for me to toast today; no doubt the war would have ended earlier still; and Hitler's goals more quickly thwarted.
