      With the upgrade to the new server, we ran into problems with the software managing the document section.  While this is being remedied, the domain is redirected to the forums.

That's him.

He was "inspired" by the real DJ Adrian Cronauer.  He never said this stuff, that was all improv. He did, however, originate "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD Morning Vietnam!"  He said the reason it was really, really long was a practical one. When you're a DJ, eventually you're going to dash in at the very last second. The long word gave him up to 30 seconds to grab records and do his other prep for his shift.

"In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate."

It took me a second to recall who John Dunbar was.  And you're right, you were wrong. 

350 million Indians can't refer to America.

If it's not a "Sitting Bull" Indian, then it's a "Ghandi" Indian.   (According to some people.)

Gandhi is correct.

That's the problem with quoting from memory, rather than looking it up.

"General, would you care to step outside?"

Not really.  I got it at the moment I began reading his comment.   

Carry on.
