Quandary Resolution 4548
mondegreen, salami tactics, manifesto, whipsaw

The title of Duke Willmington's manifesto, "Haffely, Gaffely, Gaffely, Gonward," a mondegreen of the famous Tennyson poem, served to underscore its thesis, namely, that the county's foreign policy, which was being whipsawed by the forces of patriotism and an increasing sense amongst the citizenry of the futility of war, would never regain its legendary influence in the world unless those at the highest levels of government ceased their salami tactics and took strong, decisive action to inculcate a sense of grand purpose into their military schemes.
