Quotes from the dark side

#1--From Tommie Franks, Army commander during Iraq invasion, concluding an interview in which he predicted that if America were subjected to a terrorist attack using WMD, the US constitution would be abandoned and replaced with a military dictatorship:

“It’s not in the history of civilization for peace ever to reign. Never has in the history of man. ... I doubt that we’ll ever have a time when the world will actually be at peace.”

#2--Inscribed on a "collector's item" photo-portrait of Bush, this literary masterpiece from an address to Congress:

"We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter; and we will not fail. Peace and freedom will prevail."

#3--From Laura Bush, while touring Buckingham Palace's collection of jeweled Faberge eggs during Bush's trip to England, as thousands of demonstators were kept miles away from the presidential entourage:

"We've seen plenty of American flags. We've seen plenty of people waving to us -- many, many more people in fact than protesters."
