Quote of the Century – Defense Secretary Robert Gates!

Dear Commons Community,

The quote of the century at least until now goes to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.   Yesterday he  bluntly told an audience of West Point cadets  that it would be unwise for the United States to ever fight another war like Iraq or Afghanistan, and that the chances of carrying out a change of government in that fashion again were slim.

“In my opinion, any future defense secretary who advises the president to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or Africa should ‘have his head examined’.
