Fight fire with fire. We have to be so strong. We have to fight so viciously.
—Donald Trump, 28 June 2016
How about this little tactical ditty, Donald? It's from British historian Richard Miles's Carthage Must Be Destroyed, parts of which are some of the most gruesome reading I have ever endured:
[Carthaginian prisoners'] hands were cut off, they were castrated, and their legs were then broken. While they were still breathing, they were flung on top of one another in a big pit and buried alive. [It was] then declared that all Carthaginian prisoners could expect the same repulsive fate.
Too much? Too little? All we can know is that only The Donald knows, since he knows "more about ISIS than the generals do. Believe [him]."
Oh, here's another quotable quote — same source — from Trump: "How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?"
