Another Churchill Quote

On the same week as heated debate in Congress over the U.S. presence in Iraq, Oliver North weighs in, blasting what he calls the "surrender now crowd." In this column, North uses a Winston Churchill quote as a helpful prop:
"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival." — Winston S. Churchill

Sir Winston delivered that line in the House of Commons on May 13 1940, in his first address as Prime Minister.
Churchill also delivered these lines, which Ollie and the Bush administration should have considered before the decision was made to invade Iraq:
"Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events."
