You're an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot. -Stanley Kubrick



General "Buck" Turgidson: Mr. President, we are rapidly approaching a moment of truth both for ourselves as human beings and for the life of our nation. Now, truth is not always a pleasant thing. But it is necessary now to make a choice, to choose between two admittedly regrettable, but nevertheless *distinguishable*, postwar environments: one where you got twenty million people killed, and the other where you got a hundred and fifty million people killed.



President Merkin Muffley: You're talking about mass murder, General, not war!



General "Buck" Turgidson: Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks
 
 
 

If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed. -Stanley Kubrick
