98. That's as bad as the people who thought Saddam Hussein would take over the world...
...despite having neither the manpower not industrial base to do more than be what he was: a tin-pot strongman who couldn't beat anyone who was actually equipped to fight back.

Except Newtie should know better. Which he likely does, and he's just indulging his usual tactic of getting his herd all frenzied so they'll stampede in the direction he points them in.
