Dont forget that for every woman out there that you want to sleep with there probably is at least one guy who's been there, done that, and thinks she's a raving bitch.

"And there is, I am certain, among the Iraqi people a respect for the care and the precision that went into the bombing campaign." - Donald Rumsfeld,, 04-09-03

"It has been said that the distinctive qualities of a knight were at their best honor, piety and love; at their worst ferocity, superstition and lust. The virtues of chivalry were courage, faith and devotion; its vices murder, intolerance and adultery" -- Ewart Oakeshott

The Arabs may be cowardly murderers and incompetent soldiers, but boy do they have this PR thing down pat. Somehow they've managed to convince the world that an outpost of a 300 million strong linguistic/ethnic/religious group controlling 20 countries on more than a million square miles of territory has been cheated of their homeland, a tiny spit of land which happens to be the only territory owned by the Jews. -- clambam

"Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain

"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear -- kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor -- with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real." -- General Douglas MacArthur, 1957

Maces and swords, colorful helms,
shields riven and cast aside:
these shall we see at the start of the battle,
and also many vassals struck down,
the horses of the dead and wounded running wild.
And when he enters the combat,
let every man of good lineage
think of nothing but splitting heads and hacking arms;
for it is better to die than to live in defeat. -- Bertran de Born, 1184
