Gummere:
Have you ever heard of the "Big Stick", Bashaw?



The Bashaw of Tangier:
Do not threaten me, Mr. Gummere. I have been threatened by the French, the Germans, the English... I have been threatened by..."experts", Mr. Gummere! And yet Morocco is still the only sovereign Muslim throne west of Constantinople.



Gummere:
Yes, but it is shaky.



The Bashaw of Tangier:
Yes, we have French infantry and German cavalry. Our currency is Spanish. But my nephew is the Sultan of Morocco; and it is, as it shall be.

Raisuli:
To Theodore Roosevelt - you are like the Wind and I like the Lion. You form the Tempest. The sand stings my eyes and the Ground is parched. I roar in defiance but you do not hear. But between us there is a difference. I, like the lion, must remain in my place. While you like the wind will never know yours. - Mulay Hamid El Raisuli, Lord of the Riff, Sultan to the Berbers, Last of the Barbary Pirates.

Theodore Roosevelt:
[to Hay, while boxing] You know as well as I do that we can't have Arab desperadoes running around kidnapping American citizens. If I had my way, I'd go in there with a couple of Winchesters, a batallion of Marines - but, I can't do that, can I?

Raspuli, Raisuli, whatever - has he made any terms?
