->I couldn't talk the captain [of the ''USS Mobile Bay''] into firing a missile for me, but he showed me a videotape of a test firing ... Even in slow motion there was nothing slow about the missile launching. The flip lid whips open, and for a moment you see a bald top of something emerging in light and smoke, a high burlesque of a jack-in-the-box; then the ship's deck is covered by a tower of blast and dazzle blanketing one bright, rising, white, fiery column -- hell's own hard-on.

->''Over there, over there,\\
Send the word, send the word over there\\
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming\\
The drums rum-tumming everywhere.\\
So prepare, say a prayer,\\
Send the word, send the word to beware -\\
We'll be over, we're coming over,\\
And we won't come back till it's over, over there.''

->''Bidden to make war their work, Americans shoulder the burden with intimidating purpose. There is, I have said, an American mystery, the nature of which I only begin to perceive. If I were obliged to define it, I would say it is the ethos-masculine, pervasive, unrelenting, of work as an end in itself. War is a form of work, and America makes war, howver reluctently, however unwillingly, in a peculiarly workmanlike way. I do not love war; but I love America.''
