Who Said That, Anyway?


In an effort to fight the wave of 'False But True' bloviation that is sweeping the nation we thought we would start up a series in which we note real (ie. not made up out of whole cloth see, Badges, Iran: Fabrication) quotes that just might surprise you.

Today's was uttered by a famous politician who was having difficulty controlling rampaging Iraqis:

"I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes"

Pretty strong stuff, no, even if the speaker actually thought he could use the gas to induce 'terror' rather than just kill the brutes.

So........ Who said that, anyway?

Give up?

Well, would you believe it was that great statesman, and current neocon darling, Winston Churchill?

Sure was.
