The I’m just sayin… Quote of the Week
You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, What is our aim I can answer with one word Victory; victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be for without victory there is no survival. – Sir Winston Churchill
