On the Fact that British General T.P. Vandeleur, One of the Most Incompetent and Corrupt Military Leaders in Western History, Actually Suggested to South African Governor Francis Dundas that His Soldiers, "Garrison the Block House and Allow the Boers and Savages to Fight it Out" (this While He and the Remnants of His Regiment Were Cowering on Some Beach Near the Mouth of the Fish River Totally Routed)

And, please, keep in mind here that this is the same "genius" who thought that that it was a bang-up idea to disarm the Boers (only to want their help later) and who thereby created this whole disaster in the first place.
