"Tonight, we will do something unconventional against them. This means: not by the military. We will do something that I believe will become a pretty example for those mercenaries. I would not be giving out a secret when I say that action in the dark against such mercenaries is effective, not through the action of armies. I say that dropping down those mercenaries in a surprise fashion at Saddam Airport without accurate calculations is largely meant for showing things. It's a showy operation. It is a kind of surprise muscle flexing to the world to show it that the shock and awe operation is indeed successful. May they be accursed. Through this operation [shock and awe], they sent a number of their villains and mercenaries to be butchered. Again, and according to my early estimates, unless the remaining part of their soldiers surrender, the chance for their survival is very slim. The surprising thing is that after they threw their soldiers into a place where they are not aware of the real results, the villainous Americans, like Powelll and the others, sat in Europe to discuss how to divide Iraq as spoils after the war [laughing]. This means what's post-war. The post-war [Iraq] will be the same current Iraq under the leadership of President Sadddam Husayn."

While I am not a great fan of Henry Ford he was a industrial and marketing genius.  He once said "If you think you can or cannot do something, you're probably right".  I have always like this quote and it says so much about being focused and remaining positive, something many of us struggle with.

These three are very good:

Don't argue about the difficulties. The difficulties will argue for themselves.

- Winston Churchill

Learning is not compulsory... neither is survival.

- W. Edwards Deming

I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.

- Voltaire

But my favourite must be:

The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.

- Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

When John Lennon was asked if he thought that Ringo Starr was the best drummer in the world his reply was "He's not the best drummer in the Beatles."

As someone above: "Je pense, donc je suis".

This is the original French for "I think therefore I am". Although it was used in no relation to my way of interpreting it, it kind of reminds that it doesn't matter what others think about what I think, that's what makes me me.
