This waiting is for old women and foolish children. I've heard all the excuses: problems with the weapon design, kemocite production delayed, testing to make sure the weapon is as effective as promised. The list goes on.

In the old days it would never have been like this. Strike swift, strong and sure. Show the enemy the face of their destroyer. No hiding behind intrigue and prattling lackeys that snivel and grovel and cloak their words in honeyed velvet nothing.

Waiting. Our race has become so good at it.

Waiting. The one thing we have in common with our enemy.
