    ha ha ... wasn't that the excuse for Vietnam? Send in more 'advisors' (armed, of course)

  • DakotaRed

    LOL, Simon. Maybe if Kennedy and Johnson had asked for inspectors instead of advisors, that one would have been different too. The public seems to like inspectors over advisors.

    I liked INSPECTOR Clouseau better than any advisors I've ever seen!

    (stumble, pratfall -- I'm okay!)
