Cigars, Brandy and Gassing.

"I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes... it is not necessary to use only the most deadly gasses; gasses can be used which cause great inconvenience and would spread a lively terror and yet would leave no permanent effects on most of those affected."

Winston Churchill, 1919.
