Whatever the correct pronunciation, you can be sure that the man (or woman?) who presses the button to start WWIII will say "New Kule Are"

Eh? What's all this rating stuff? And are all the posts going to be short or what? Like the possible further reading links though.

"As well a well-wrought urn becomes
The greatest ashes, as half-acre tombs"
