Got this from a friend...

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

It is a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster
and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his
military Headquarters.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys
when they visit your base?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching
children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see how.. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before
they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

Old story...Supposedly he was an Aussie General...yeh, the microphone pull was part of the story, which now seems to be un-verified, all of which is irrelevant..That point in his last comment, folklore or not, is PRICELESS...
