for the Department

of Homeland Security.

Now nothing is wrong.

This is simply a drill.

Now that we've arrived

in Washington D. C.,

I need to see how quickly

you can exit the bus.

The cost of your

tickets will be refunded.

My goal is to find out if

this was a real emergency,

how long

it would take.

It starts...


Let's go, folks.


... missed him.

In clearing up this war in Iraq...

Ace of Spades.

What'd you just say?

Ace of Spades.

Seeing is believing,

my friend.

Why is it

always him?

It's in

English, Sanchez.


Northern Pakistan.

It's too obvious.

I don't like it.

Well, you don't

like anything.

Just give me

the odds.

Two to four.

So Junior says fifty

fifty, my hombre.

You know, a wise man once said,

"Knowing oneself and

knowing the enemy,

"in every battle,

certain victory.

"Knowing oneself,

not knowing the enemy,

"one victory

for one loss.

"But not

knowing oneself,

"and not knowing

the enemy,

in every battle,

certain defeat. "

Who was it?

Sun Tzu,

The Art of War.

These days

I say fifty fifty.

An eye for an eye.

It's about as good

as it's gonna get.

The call came out

for heroes, boys.

The three wise

men on high,

smelled, touched, saw,

and came to the conclusion

of whom they should call.

I say we send

out a message telling

the children to

cover their eyes,

the women to

shut their legs,

and the men to put

up their fists,

because a war

machine is coming.

We roll in 55

minutes, gentlemen.

Let's burn

this shit hole down.

Merry fucking Christmas.

Plans for carrying out this war in Iraq...

Look, we're just

doing our job, alright?

I don't know what you

did, I don't care.

No, not yet.

Now if you want to live,

then stay off the grid.
