I put the man who said it on the 'To' line.
 
====================
 
"Imperium" may well be the end product of the Pax Americana. What the
world
needs to understand is what Admiral Yamamoto realized in the wake of
Pearl
Harbor, and what Tom Clancy explained so aptly (here paraphrased): The
US
military is, in spite of the efforts of the past few years by a whole
lot of
self-serving politicians, a junkyard dog on a short leash. In most cases
harmless, but if you piss its owners off enough for them to slip the
leash,
it's time to bend over and smile.
