Quotes of hte Morning

“Now we know where Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) thinks the weapons of mass destruction are buried: in Syria, which he said he’d like to nuke to smithereens. Speaking at a veterans’ celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, Johnson told the crowd that he explained his theory to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House one night. Johnson said he told the president that night, ‘Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on ‘em and I’ll make one pass. We won’t have to worry about Syria anymore.’”
-Roll Call, February 2005

“Ok.. Let’s look at this one. A seated congressman, speaking at a church, told the crowd that he would nuke a country of 18 million people (about 1.8 million of which are Christian) because of his ‘theory’ that they have weapons of mass destruction. He first told this theory (and his solution) to the President, who apparently, judging from Mr. Johnson’s pride in retelling this, did not call him a moron to his face like he should have. Wow.”

“We don't want to start a nuclear war unless we really have to, now do we Jack?”
-Group Capt. Mandrake (Peter Sellers) to Col. Jack Ripper, Dr. Strangelove

“Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.”
-Omar Bradley (1893 - 1981)

“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
-Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992), Salvor Hardin in "Foundation"

“There are more pleasant things to do than beat up people.”
-Muhammad Ali (1942 - )
