        As an FYI, although this statement fairly accurately portrayed
        his personal opinion according to people who knew him personally,
        its actual attribution to Admiral Yamamoto was throughly debunked
        years ago.  It was a writer's creation for the movie "Tora Tora 
Tora".

Your source, please?  I've seen the quote (which I paraphrased, it's 
longer) many times in many "official" sources; and seen nothing to disavow it.

Bartleby.com lists the attribution for this quote as the screenwriter
for "Tora! Tora! Tora!" and lists "The Columbia World of Quotations" as
the source.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
