Thursday Fix – Victory In Our Time!

Posted on the 27 October 2011 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory—victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival. – Winston Churchill
