Thought for the day

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.

--Winston Churchill

Quick! Someone tell George "Mission Accomplished" Bush and Dick "Rose Petals" Cheney! (No, I am not suggesting either man is a statesman.)
