- I need a room.

- It's 5 dollars for 15 minutes.

I need one for 2 days.

You don't wanna stay here,

there's no hot water...

Just give me a room,

the corner if you got one?


That's... uh,

You must need something.

I need you...

to see if someone knows about

the Afghanistan deal.

Of course the do, Rene,

I told you.

I warned you.

Then I got a leak

in my organization.



but that's not the point.

Well, what is your point?

The point ist, that no matter how much

money you start to make on this deal.

The Americans will not

let you deal with terrorist.

Even if they're not terrorists.

I didn't ask for your advice,

the deal is going through.

It's my show now.


Sit down, Rene.

Why do you show me

such disrespect?

Sit down.

You know... uh,

people thought I was crazy...

when I turned over the family

buisness to a none family member.

But I always knew

I was doing the right thing.

Because you have

a steadiness about you.

And I believe in you, but...

use your brain.

And you must be smarter

then your enemy.

What're you trying to say?

The Americans...

they're very smart,

but sometimes they can be

incredibly stupid.

They spend all this...

money, time and energy

on so called war on terror.

They put satellites

up in space.

They can ram a smart-bomb

up a camel's ass...

from a situation

And everytime the U.S.

kills an Al Qaida leader,

what happens? There's a new one

before the body is cold.

They do it a million times,

and never get it...

because the real solution,

always eludes them.

Do you know what that is?

Why don't you align with me.

Do nothing.



If you want it shut down

the fundamental flaw system...

all you gotta do

is step out of it's way...

and it'll shut itself down.
