Onion Quote of the Moment
At a recent NATO meeting, France and Germany expressed reluctance to lend military support to the U.S. if it invades Iraq. What do you think?
"That's a shame. It would have been hilarious to see the French running around the desert in their froofy Stratego uniforms."
"Hey, Mr. President. When even the Germans don't want to fight, take the fucking hint."
--The Onion, What Do You Think? It's funny stuff, though admittedly not quite fair, post-war Germany (and Japan) has actually been more pacifist, not less, probably because of the awfulness they went through.
Historical Quote of the Moment
"You always write it's bombing, bombing, bombing. It's not bombing. It's air support."
--Col. David H.E. Opfer, air attaché at the US embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Toy of the Moment
Not the friendliest interface, but the Lego Brick Builder is a cute little online toy.
