|Floating Clausewitz head|
will be drinking with me
in spirit tonight.
Tom Ricks and the gang at the Warlord Loop have challenged the blogosphere for a list of the best national security quotations. Unfortunately, it looks as if most are gleaning quotations from the usual sources: Mao Tse-Tung, Eisenhower, Sun-Tzu, Napoleon, and the like.
I think I can one-up the great captains of history and devise some national security quotations of my own making, which I will post to Twitter as I imbibe alcohol tonight.
Look for the #nsqs (national security quotations) hashtag on Twitter. I'll have the ghosts of Clausewitz and Moltke the Elder in stitches by the nights end. No small feat, too, as I bet those Prussians can really pound some fermented beverages. And even if I don't out-quote Bonaparte, at least you'll be amused, right?
