Appropriate quote of the day

You know we armed Iraq. I wondered about that too, you know during the Persian Gulf war… those intelligence reports would come out: “Iraq: incredible weapons – incredible weapons.” How do you know that? “Uh, well… We looked at the receipts Haar.” “Ah but as soon as that cheque clears, we’re going in.” “What time’s the bank open? 8? We’re going in at 9.” “We’re going in for God and country and democracy and here’s a foetus and he’s a Hitler. Whatever you fucking need, let’s go. Get motivated behind this, let’s go!” Bill Hicks

You know, and the amazing thing, obviously, the disparity and the casualties. Iraq – one hundred and fifty thousand casualties, USA – seventy-nine. Iraq – one hundred and fifty thousand, USA – seventy-nine. Does that mean that if we had sent over eighty guys, we still would have won that fucking thing, or what? Bill Hicks
