All we are saying
Is give war a chance.
The Gods of the Copybook Headings takes issue with Michael Coren's "myths" about the Second World War, stopping along the way to cite a salient lesson lost on our enemy and lost to ourselves (via Binky).
—Letter, Sherman to Henry W. Halleck, December 24, 1864.
Today's enemy has a demonic appetite for torture and slaughter, his war materiel is provided for by every trip we make to the gas station and he fights in the knowledge of an unholy promise of sex slaves for booty in this world and as eternal reward in the next. He is no more likely to call it a day than an SS officer would be were he also threatened with internment at a Caribbean beach resort.

"[S]ex slaves with booty"... whoa!
Oh wait, I got it wrong. Dang.
