There's nothing like a good smoke and a cup of coffee. You know, some men got the craving for gold and silver, others need lots of land with herds of cattle, and there's those that got the weakness for whiskey and for women… When you boil it all down, what does a man really need? Just a smoke and a cup of coffee.
Do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war? –Uh, no, I don't think I do, sir, no. –He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought.
