"Every Communist must grasp the truth, 'Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.'  Our principle is that the [Communist] Party commands the gun and the gun will never be allowed to command the Party."
Mao Tse-tung
Premier of China (1893 - 1976)
"Problems of War and Strategy," November 6, 1938, in 'Selected Works of Mao Zedong' (1965)
