It’s from the little conversation you have with Garrus about whether the turians are going to continue defending Palaven or go on the offensive. He says “[Dictators] don’t give a damn about the consequences. Suppose that’s what it’s going to take, Shepard. The ruthless calculus of war. Ten billion people over here die so twenty billion over there live.”
I’m just really interested in how war strategists and analysts have to put away emotional thinking and empathy, and use that “ruthless calculus” to make the hard strategic choices. Turning casualties into statistics.
