- "Expect ruthless people to deal with you ruthlessly, and you will never be disappointed."
Governments adore lies. No parliament legislates laws forbidding governments to tell them. George W. Bush wasn't requested to resign for telling WMD lies; the same is true for Tony Blair. Israel Police was not shy of admitting in Court that lies and tricks are its main entrapment tools.
