Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Pop Quiz time!

Who said this?

"No one welcomes armed liberators."

Was it:

a. Thomas Jefferson, referring to the British attempts to quell the American Revolution;
b. Maximilien Robespierre, referring to France's wars against the rest of Europe;
c. Giuseppe Garibaldi, referring to some Italians' desire to unite the peninsula by force;
d. T. E. Lawrence, referring to the British policy in Palestine during and directly following World War I;
e. William Westmoreland, referring to the American invasion of North Vietnam;
f. George W. Bush, defending his father's unwillingness to invade Iraq in 1991 (oh, the irony!).

Even though nobody reads my blog, you can leave your guesses in the comments. The answer will arrive tomorrow!

As Dominique Moisi of the French Institute of Foreign Affairs put it the next day:

"No one likes armed liberators, especially if they come from a different continent with a different culture and a different religion".

So who waws Moisi quoting? Don't know either, but I'll pick the French guy.
