    A lie can make it halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

    •  Some lies I like... (0+ / 0-) Operation Bodyguard:

      Operation Bodyguard was the code name for a high level World War II deception plan employed by the Allied states during the buildup to the 1944 invasion of northwestern Europe. The plan set out a general strategy to mislead German high command as to the exact date and location of the invasion. It was implemented as a number of independent operations, eventually culminating in tactical surprise during the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944 (also known as D-Day) and a delayed German reinforcement of the region for some time afterward.
      Not all lies are created equal.

      Sorry, can't help myself. I loves the history.

      Join Essa in a revolt against the gods. Continue the fight, Causality.
