Cry Havoc and let slip the Dogs of War


Israel’s hired-mercenaries

Situation in Libya. Who are they fighting? Are they fighting Israel’s hired-mercenaries?

Egyptian sources have revealed that the Israeli company has so far provided Gaddafi’s regime with 50,000 African mercenaries to attack the civilian anti-government protesters in Libya.

From the play, Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. After Caesar’s murder Anthony regrets the course he has taken and predicts that war is sure to follow.

ANTONY:

Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter’d with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry ‘Havoc,’ and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
