A quote attributed to Otto von Bismarck

A quote attributed to Otto von Bismarck: "Der ganze Balkan ist nicht die gesunden Knochen eines einzigen pommerschen Grenadiers wert." (The whole of the Balkans is not worth the bones of a single Pomeranian grenadier).

Substitute Afghanistan for the Balkans and British for Pomeranian and you have my feelings exactly.
