General Murray (Character)
from Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
General Murray: I may as well tell you, it's my considered opinion and that of my staff that any time spent on the Bedouin will be time wasted.They're a nation of sheep-stealers.
Mr. Dryden: They did attack Medina.
General Murray: And the Turks made mincemeat of them.
Mr. Dryden: We don't know that.
General Murray: We know that they didn't take it. A storm in a teacup, a sideshow. If you want my own opinion, this whole theatre of operations is a sideshow. The real war's being fought against Germans, not Turks. And not here, but on the Western front in the trenches. Your Bedouin Army, or whatever it calls itself would be a sideshow of a sideshow.
