Splash du Jour: Friday

If we let people see that sort of thing, there would never again be any war.

Even though the above photo is not fiction, I wish us all, a great Friday!

"I know there´s a lot of speculation that these reports in Washington mean there´s going to be some kind of graceful exit out of Iraq. This business about a graceful exit just simply has no realism to it whatsoever. We´re going to stay in Iraq to get the job done as long as the government wants us there."

I don't want to see a 'graceful exit' me that sounds too much like leaving the country hanging to clean up the mess. I hope that is not what we do.

"I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on friend and foe has rendered it useless as a method of settling international disputes."
-- Douglas MacArthur, Congress address, 19 April, 1951 --
