Coming from a guy who ordered the bombing of a civilian airliner...



And about whether it counts, that's why I put in the Jiang Qin quote.

Nothin like a little "shock and awe" to get your point across, eh?


Watch the language there, Italianguy (by the way, even though I know this is off-topic (sorry guys), what part of Italy are you from? I was just over there a year or so ago, pretty country.).

That is true, but watch the langauge, also note that "big satan" is a term used by fundmentalists, not by natinalists....Funny thing about Kadaffi, he has a completey female security force guarding him...

Yes sorry about that, let's say Iraqi example just scared him to death then. We all know he was caught in a mortal grasp between the Staes and the fundamentalists, so he just chose the former.
I was born in Sardinia ( the western island ) but moved to the North 5 yrs ago to study. Ever heard of Bologna? where were you at instead?

Uh, kind of hate to bring this guy's name up (especially to you) and I seriously doubt you'd want to quote him, but Quisling was a Norwegian major wasn't he?

As for "U" the British commander of the 1st Airborne at Arnhem during Operation Market Garden was named Major General Robert 'Roy' Urquhart.
You can read quite a bit about him here:

BTW, while looking up that part I found an excellent site regarding Operation Market Garden here:

Very nicely done.

Quisling...
I did (of course) know about him, but I haven't found a qoute from him thats' worthy of being put on the site yet...
Did you know that he was actually top of his class both at the Sergeant School (Field Artillery. Not something we're very proud of by the way ..) and the Officers School for the Army....


Thanks for the links, I'll check them out and see f I can find any good quotes in there.

Ack, no I didn't know that about Quisling. Well our own most famous traitor, Benedict Arnold, was the most able general we had at the start of the American War of Independance. He won our first victory at the battle of Saratoga, without which we never would have garnered support from France and been able to defeat the British. He was rather arrogant of his abilities however and that's what led to his switching sides to the British. Once he did their bidding he was ignored by them. Interesting that both Quisling and Benedict Arnold have had their very names become synonyms for "traitor". You can't be more scurilous than that.

Yes, Quisling is still quite commonly used as a synonym for Traitor here..
