Wisdom of Billy-Bob

Quoth the AP of Wm. J. Clinton speechifying this week:
[Clinton] also reflected on his own decisions when, as commander in chief, he was urged to launch a military strike somewhere in the world.

''I always thought of Senator Fulbright and the terrible quagmire in Vietnam and how many times we sent more soldiers and found ourselves in a hole and kept digging because we didn't want to look like we were weak. So anytime somebody said in my presidency, 'If you don't do this people will think you're weak,' I always asked the same question for eight years: ''Can we kill 'em tomorrow?''

''If we can kill 'em tomorrow, then we're not weak, and we might be wise enough to try to find an alternative way,'' said Clinton.

'Nuff said.
