DECEMBER 2004

As you know, you go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time.

2004

It seems to me that it's up to all of us to try to tell the truth, to say what we know, to say what we don't know, and recognise that we're dealing with people that are perfectly willing to, to lie to the world to attempt to further their case and to the extent people lie of, ultimately they are caught lying and they lose their credibility and one would think it wouldn't take very long for that to happen dealing with people like this.

MARCH 2003

We know where they [Iraq's WMD] are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat.

FEBRUARY 2003

And it is not knowable if force will be used [in Iraq], but if it is to be used, it is not knowable how long that conflict would last. It could last, you know, six days, six weeks. I doubt six months.

OCTOBER 2002

[Osama Bin Laden is] either alive and well or alive and not too well or not alive.

SEPTEMBER 2002

No terrorist state poses a greater or more immediate threat to the security of our people and the stability of the world than the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

FEBRUARY 2002

Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know.

MAY 2001

Once in a while, I'm standing here, doing something. And I think: 'What in the world am I doing here?' It's a big surprise.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Serg has released 2 new ships; a cute little yatch thing for the Palm Beach crowd and a new 5,000 ton steamer in both an early and late war version.
Because I made a number of my convoy cargo ships generic (meaning thay can spawn as a different cargo ship each time) that means when I add a new type 102 it is instantly possible for it to show up.
Last night I went back to the future.
I have been in 1943-45 for about a year and started a 1940 career and on the first convoy one of Serg's new early steamers was in the mix.
It tried in vain to cut across my stern at a bad angle but when a Kaleun has faced the late war crowd these early war pansies have little hope and I sent one of these nice models to Davy Jones for save keeping.
There are now 2 men on the bridge and if you can see him the captain is going down with his ship (last pic)
