Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“Had we had to do it [the invasion of Iraq] over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success - being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day.” (President George W. Bush, August 2004)
