"It is certain that the two world wars in which I have participated in would not have occurred had we been prepared. It is my belief that adequate preparation on our part would have prevented or materially shortened all our other wars beginning with that of 1812. Yet, after each of our wars, there has always been a great hue and cry to the effect
that there will be no more wars, that disarmament is the true road to health, happiness, and peace; and that by removing the fire department, we will remove fires. These ideas spring from wishful thinking and from the erroneous belief that wars result from logical processes. There is no logic in wars. They are produced by madmen. No man can say when future madmen will reappear. I do not say that there will be no more wars. I devoutly hope that there will not, but I do say that the chances of avoiding future wars will be greatly enhanced if we are ready."

General George S. Patton, Jr.

Occasionally, it becomes necessary to stand up for those who can't. I still blame Bush SR for not completeing the job ten years back. I still blame us for not completing the job at the Yalu river and for stopping the US forces at Berlin at the close of WW2. Heck, there could been 150 states by now. And we coulda made the world speak English.

hehehe- tried to make me think, huh? My guess is that Gen. Patton would have set his well honed sights on that madman in Bhagdad. I suspect he was very impressed with the job Gen. Franks has done.

Where in the fair Old Dominion do you hang your hat?
