To haul it back to the D-Day, and to tens of thousands of soldiers being issued an inadequately tested and potentially dangerous motion sickness drug, a danger acknowledged at the same time by massive blood banks and penicillin stores, I just want to stop here, with a week to go, and point out what we are trying to do here.
It is very, very simple. Forget what is going to happen. Look at what has happened: at Dieppe, but also on the first day of El Alamein, or on the Somme. We are asking for a decisive breakthrough on multiple attack axes of attack on the first day, in fact, the first hours of an assault. Many battles of this kind have been won, but very, very rarely according to plan and at the first rush. Unfortunately, this assault cannot succeed any other way.
Soldiers of the United Nations! We ask of you the impossible, with only the assurance that this war is almost over, and we cannot ask you to ignore the double meaning of that last sentence. Here are some pills to make it bearable. We love you. Please come home.
