There is a war on.
Our enemy is brutal.
Our enemy is both foreign and domestic.
Domestic elements have aligned themselves with a foreign agenda.
That agenda is the agenda of communist China.
…and you will know us by the trail of dead.
Where was our airstrike?
Has the radioman been beheaded?
Now we are stuck in the morass of this fetid jungle.
Chickenhawks are the most eager to order assassinations.
PBR Street Gang.
Chef saucier with some Vietnamese and New Orleans French.
Charlie don’t surf.
But General Michael Flynn does.
Look out honey ’cause I’m using technology.
With a heart full of napalm.
Those dedicated few.
We salute you.
In some colonial outpost.
Without a commanding officer.
Legacy of ashes.
A willingness to serve.
This is the unrestricted warfare of the Chinese.
Did he try to right the ship?
It is a bold stratagem.
He who dares, wins.
Mama’s tape plays for dead son.
Not your war.
What happens when it’s not voluntary.
Vietnam as ideological war.
And war profiteering.
Each side of the coin with heart blinded to the obverse/reverse truth.
They were only toy arrows.
To scare us.
But you insisted upon killing.
And you were killed.
You were by the book.
Yet you had no wisdom.
You could have been a great leader.
But you lacked agility.
To turn on a dime.
Make hats, go nuts.
Make deaths, go nuts.
Did Kathy Griffin incite violence when she held up a bloody prop head intended to look like a realistic beheading of President Trump?
Trip up the river.
What a surfeit of patriotism will do.
Present a schism.
To fight harder.
To fight even after the war is over.
But it is not over.
It was a great plan.
What went wrong?
Was the radioman beheaded?
Almighty standing by?
This is perhaps the best film ever made.
Francis Ford Coppola.
And it contains several of the greatest performances ever committed to film.
But the most important is Martin Sheen.
We are now living in a country strewn with decapitations.
All illusion of democracy is gone.
Our republic is no longer one where dissent is allowed.
From two parties, one has coalesced.
A totalitarism state is emerging.
Technocrats as the ruling council.
What are patriots to do?
We who are left alive?
Soon to be targeted by our own government…as if we were terrorists.
We only want our votes to count.
We only want free and fair elections.
What will you do, digital soldier?
