How would you describe

the morale of a squad?

I'm sorry.

I am asking the wrong question.


At the beginning of an operation

morale was high ...

Yes. Had good morals as a unit,

had good ties as a team, but

said ...

When did you notice something

was wrong?

Wrong with what?

We must be calm. We make the effort,

but the same happens.

Then I return to my question,

how does that affect your man?

Soldiers complain. It's what they do.

To be honest, our team sucks.

Yeah yeah. Complain.

I mean, it's normal.





Helmand province.

Would you can lend a hand?

No. I'm smoking. So do what you can.

We're going to throw it anyway.

It's just a fucking gun.

Better not ask questions like that,

if you'll ask me.


You are pure do or die.

Do and die. You have no choice. See?

You'll need fat for that.


What the f*ck are you playing?

I thought you played the first turn.

Did not he?

When you say,

I have prepared my shot.

Not for long.

It's not my fault.

You said it was a bad boy.

Did I say something, Stab?

Hand me that bag and you can stay

with my supplies.

Do not listen Stab.

I grew up raised by animals fucking.

In the most beautiful girls in

the world loves animals.

You ask a Welshman a fungus becomes

full of cow poop.

vehicles every hour.
