The people believe what they're told unconditionally..... the Army said the war would be over quickly, and if that's what they say, it couldn't possibly be any other way.

"...the Army called Pete yesterday.  He'll be back next week.  The Army said so.  Quick war.  Forty-eight hours, they said, and everyone home.  That's what the Army said.  Quick war.  Pete was called yesterday and they said he'd be back next week.  Quick..."
