George Jonas has taken a look at the flotilla of fools, and found them to be duplicitous in motive and obvious in execution. That's the easy part.

"When arms speak, the laws fall silent." I don't think the Romans who coined inter arma silent leges meant that the laws actually cease to speak in times of war, only that the din of arms drowns out their voices.

Obviously only a complete and utter fool would do such a short sighted, self-defeating thing.

Such amusing conversationalists."
