"The reason I am distrustful of Sadr is that we know that in private conversations, he has said, 'There are two million who must die,'" said an Army officer who served in a key position in Iraq. This wasn't hearsay, he said, indicating that it came from an intercept of communications.muqtada sadr

I have endeavoured to show that no absolute structural line of demarcation, wider than that between the animals which immediately succeed us in the scale, can be drawn between the animal world and ourselves; and I may add the expression of my belief that the attempt to draw a physical distinction is equally futile, and that even the highest faculties of feeling and of intellect begin to germinate in lower forms of life.thomas henry huxley

Prosperity is no just scale; adversity is the only balance to weigh friends.
There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow.l. ron hubbard
