"How many people had I already killed? There were those six that I knew about for sure. Close enough to blow their last breath in my face. But this time, it was an American and an officer. That wasn't supposed to make any difference to me, but it did. Shit... charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets in the Indy 500. I took the mission. What the hell else was I gonna do?"
Captain Willard,  [Martin Sheen 6105-8110]

"Somebody once wrote: 'Hell is the impossibility of reason.' That's what this place feels like. Hell."
Pvt. Chris Taylor [Charlie Sheen 6602-8040]
