I was watching Countdown the other day, and they were interviewing some soldiers about the contractors killed in Fallujah. One soldier said something like "Don't these people realize we're trying to help them? They don't seem to appreciate it." Personally, I wouldn't appreciate it if foreign soldiers were patrolling the streets of St. Paul, trying to help me, but that's not my point right now.

This afternoon, I was watching Full Metal Jacket, and one of the Marines said to his buddy, "What I can't understand is that we're supposed to be helping these people, and they're shitting all over us."

Life imitates art.
