"Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh." - Al Swearingen

Mr. Bush, as you think about invading Iraq, please consider this:

But if the cause be not good the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at such a place;' some swearing, some crying for a surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left. I am afeard there are few die well that die in a battle; for how can they charitably dispose of any thing, when blood is their argument? Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; whom to disobey were against all proportion of subjection.

King Henry V, Act 4 sc. 1
Wm Shakespeare
