AND you get to shoot your guns off all night in celebration! Kewl! [according to this 
morning's news, Saddam had to issue a proclamation telling people to stop celebrating

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the worst 
thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly debated…To 
think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was a coward; any 
idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly character; ability to 
understand a question from all sides meant that one was totally unfitted for action.” 
– Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by Thucydides in “The
Peloponessian Wars”
