"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way"-- Nathan Jessep
Here here Col. Jessep!
Well, the blanket now has holes in it and it is frayed at the edges....congratulations to you and your peers MTGRAY! The general public of the United States of America are in your debt...
"The U.S government on 9-11 ran an exercise drill that had hijacked planes used as missles.(sic) Before 9-11 buildings had never collapsed due to fire and structural damage. Al-Queda (sic) did not have the financial or technical capability to pull of 9-11. Some of the alleged hijackers are alive and well living in Saudi Arabia."--theropingeffect
And you would have direct knowledge of this how exactly? No sir, I think not! You obviously suffer from the somewhat delusional thought process which led to the emasculation of our military and intelligence services in the first place and left this nation vulnerable to attack. The point I am left to ponder now is whether you are smoking dope and watching far too much television or your computer and keyboard are experiencing an ID 10 T malfunction...
