This quote, “Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let loose the dogs of war” is so often removed from its context.

Antony, realizing that the conspiracy to kill Caesar was a terrible mistake, knew that that Rome and Italy (the world) would reap the whirlwind because of the action of a small group of powerful conspirators.

George W. Bush and his band of oily conspirators would do well to read the entire passage:

A curse shall light upon the limbs of men; Domestic fury and fierce civil strife Shall cumber all the parts of Italy; 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 chok’d with custom of fell deeds: And Cæsar’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.

I think it is is Chirac and his band of depraved band of conspirators that are going to reap this whirlwind.

But thanks for the tip on the quote. I’ll keep that in mind.
