Yossarian's logic

'They're trying to kill me,' Yossarian told him calmly.
'No one's trying to kill you,' Clevinger cried.
'Then why are they shooting at me?' Yossarian asked.
'They are shooting at everyone,' Clevinger answered. 'They're trying to kill everyone.'
'And what difference does that make?'...

'...but Yossarian had proof, because strangers he didn't know shot at him with cannons every time he flew up into the air to drop bombs on them, and it wasn't funny at all.'

chapter 3, Catch-22
Joseph Heller
