World War I — Many who were enthusiastic on August 1, 1914 and had butter, had hoped that on August 1, 1917 there would be more butter. They can still remember the enthusiasm. Karl Kraus, Die Fackel [The Torch], p. 174, Vol. XIX (9 October, 1917), Vienna.
Iraq Invasion — Many who were enthusiastic on March 20, 2003 and had gasoline, had hoped that on March 20, 2006 there would be more gasoline. They can still remember the enthusiasm. Ironical Chronicle, 90 years later.
