Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

"In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain I will run wild and win victory upon victory. But then, if the war continues after that, I have no expectation of success."

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."

"I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." [upon learning of the success of the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor]

Interestingly enough, this is what happened in Michigan with RTW. The unions picked a fight that enraged the people who built a political nuke and dropped it in their midst and now Obama is picking an even bigger fight.
