The downside to this photo, of course, is that
The General is not wearing his ivory-grip Colt SAA.

Arbeitsplätze sind die wichtigsten Dinge, in denen ein Mensch kann sich verwöhnen lassen. Es zeigen sich alle, die sich am besten; es beseitigt alles, was ist. Alle Kämpfer für die Freiheit wollen die Arbeitsplätze. Der feige ist der, der seine Angst vor ihm zu Gewalt. Ein Job, und lieben zu können, die Sie wünschen, sind die duftenden Essenzen der Persönlichkeit. Wir suchen Aufträge für unsere deutschen Kameraden.

The above photo is NOT captioned in German, since Germany didn't win WWII, and because Old Blood and Guts didn't say a darned thing about finding Fritz und Helmut living wage jobs so that they'd stop bombing London, sinking ships in the Atlantic, and toasting Hebrews in Poland. Instead, he said "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country." and he sicced the United States Third Army on those jerries - not to hand them job applications and CareerBuilder upgrade offers, but to shoot them.

That poor spokes-bimbo at Foggy Bottom trying to articulate the administration's plan to appease the terrorists would be in over her head on a Slip-n-Slide.  The truth is there is a battle going on, and a President long before the spokes-twit was born said eloquently, if not in a genteel way, "If you've got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow."

If you thought that last quote was from LBJ, you may be forgiven, as he was reported to have said it.  But it was earlier said by one of the Rushmore Presidents - in 1906, Theodore Roosevelt so responded to a question posed by his aide, one Lt. Douglas  MacArthur.
