Marines

A 'touchy-feely' CNN reporter, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked, "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?"



The Marine shrugged and replied, "Recoil."

That is too funny!!

BTW... Have you ever read any of Vince Flynn's series of books featuring his hero.. Mitch Rapp? There are at least 7 books in the series.. I'm hooked.. Mitch Rapp is the CIA's counterpart of James Bond. License to kill, etc.. Anything but touchy feely. He hunts terrorists directly for the president.. Too cool.

I have read several of Vince Flynn's books and they are hard to put down once you start reading one.

Pirate,

You're the movie expert, but...

...was it Apocalypse Now that had this dialog (more or less)

"How can you shoot women and children?"

"That's easy - you just lead them less"

Both quotes are pretty cynical and morbid - they just remind me of each other.

Actually the scene is from Full Metal Jacket, while joker is being flown to from Saigon to his new field unit.

Thanks, Mark.

I remembered the line, not the movie.
