Is it me, or do Gen. Tommy Franks and Gen. Buck Turgidson (from Dr Strangelove) look alike?
“If… we were to immediately launch an all-out and coordinated attack on all their airfields and missile bases we’d stand a damn good chance of catchin’ ‘em with their pants down. Hell, we got five to one missile superiority as it is. We could easily assign three missiles to every target and still have a very effective reserve force for any other contingency… We would therefore prevail and suffer only modest and acceptable civilian casualties from their remaining force which would be badly damaged and uncoordinated.”
General Buck Turgidson (from Dr Strangelove, 1964)
