Donald Visits US Troops

Fri Feb 14, 2003 12:13 am


At the aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is addressing a group of officers focussing on potential problems and the resulting strategies.

One of the officers in the class begins by asking the first question, "Will we have to fight the world to free it ?"

"Yes folks, looks like you will," answers Donald.

"And who will be our enemy, Mr Secretary?" another officer asks.

"The likelihood is that w’ll launch a defensive attack on those terrorist loving Iraqies ."

The class looks alarmed, and finally one officer asks, "But Mr Secretary, we have 100.000 soldiers there and they are about 1.5 million. How can we possibly win?"

"Well," replies the secretary, "Think about it. In modern war, it is not the quantity, but the quality that is the key. For example, in the Middle East, 5 million Jews fight against 50 million Arabs, and the Jews have been the winners every time."

"But sir," asks the panicky officer, "Do we have enough Jews"?

Maybe you should change the name of the aircraft carrier into the
USS Ronald Reagan (actually under construction, if I'm not mistaken).
