Big Time's Broadside at Lurch's "More Sensitive War"
Remember Lurch's promise to wage a More Sensitive War? Well, Dick "Big Time" Cheney had the following to say about that concept:
"Senator Kerry has also said that if he were in charge he would fight a 'more sensitive' war on terror. America has been in too many wars for any of our wishes, but not a one of them was won by being sensitive. President Lincoln and General Grant didn't wage sensitive wars. Nor did President Roosevelt or Generals Eisenhower MacArthur. A 'sensitive war' will not destroy the evil men who killed 3,000 Americans and who seek chemical, nuclear and biological weapons to kill hundreds or thousands more. The men who beheaded Daniel Pearl and Paul Johnson will not be impressed by our sensitivity."
Translation: No, Lurch, we can't all just get along.
