I thought this was a good poke at the U.S. plan for war in Iraq, and how quick it is allegedly going to be.
My dad and I were walking back from lunch when he told me about this.
In the three stooges (old black and white comedy crew from the 30s and 40s), there's a clip that takes place back in time of the U.S. civil war. Moe joined the south in the war and is about to get married, and his fiance asks him:
"Moe darlin', how long you all think you gonna be?"
Moe replies, with his strong, southern accent:
"Well, I don't know. Couple o' weeks I reckon'. Takes TIME to win a war!"
The U.S. civil war lasted a total of 4 years. I thought this was a good poke at plans for a quick fight.
