Max Rodenbock quotes strange bedfellows to telling effect:
"The first, the supreme, the most far-reaching act of judgment that the statesman and commander must make is to establish...the kind of war on which they are embarking; neither mistaking it for, nor trying to turn it into, something that is alien to its nature."
—Carl von Clausewitz, On War
"The actual reason for the failure of the US policy in its political field and international relations is their lack of information regarding the world's realities and also the enclosure of the decision making people of that country in their own fabricated and false political propaganda."
—From the Web log of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, following a visit to New York in September 2006
