Peter Caruthers: General Hugo Xinchub, Recipient of the U.N.S. Silver Star for valor, advocated continued military funding in his acceptance speech today.
Xinchub: When we captured and interrogated these evil machines, we learned that they had deposed and destroyed their organic creators.
Xinchub: With villany like this loose in the galaxy, the U.N.S. must continue to invest in programs to secure our way of life.We must defend peace and brotherhood for all races, whether they be made of meat or of metal, of flesh or flux...
Tagon: Aaargh! I can't watch any more of this!
Xinchub: ...Regardless of whether they are born, bread, or built.
Jevee Ceeta: Just because he's right doesn't mean you're not allowed to hate him.
