Day by Day

I found some old stuff at the original 4RWWs that might intrigue the Dear Reader.

For instance:

Cannot find Weapons of Mass Destruction



When Saddam gassed the Kurds.



An "anti-war" protestor chained himself to the wrong building.



A British Commander's addresses his troops on the eve of battle.

The enemy should be in no doubt that we are his nemesis and that we are bringing about his rightful destruction. There are many regional commanders who have stains on their souls and they are stoking the fires of hell for Saddam. He and his forces will be destroyed by this coalition for what they have done. As they die they will know their deeds have brought them to this place. Show them no pity.

We are his nemesis - a commander's briefing



This was a good'un too.

"There are things about us that the rest of the world doesn't understand, and there are things about them that we don't understand. Please note that mutual incomprehension does not imply moral equivalence. The fact that you and I can't see each other's point of view does not rule out the possibility that one of us is right and the other wrong. The rightness or wrongness depends on external facts, which have been very thoroughly debated on this site and elsewhere. Here I am just going to look at the misunderstandings between America and the rest of the world.
How do we misunderstand each other? Let me number the ways.

Good stuff, all.
