#3  Oh boy now you've gone and done it.

Kill a Legionairre?

Oh crap, better find yourself a deep cellar with a heavy door and a strong lock.

Yeah, the Legion knows how to deal with these things and they will...very quietly and very effectively, like we used to before we became a bunch of foreign policy sissies.

When exactly did our State Department become such a bunch of limp weinie pacificists and non-violent activists? And when did the CIA decide to go along with that?
