  • Quotes

    • Luka: In the beginning there's always a lot of talk of national pride and patriotic speeches. But after a few weeks it becomes this; nothing but death and sadness. These people just want what everyone else wants: their kids to have something to eat; to see them grow up, laughing, happy. They don't care where the border is or who gets to call themselves president. They just want this to stop.
      Carter: I don't even begin to try to understand the politics here.
      Luka: You are an American, Carter. You believe that if people are given a chance to convert to democracy, the world would be a better place.
      Carter: What's the alternative? Military dictatorships?
      Luka: You fight wars from the sky with bombs and missiles. Then your planes land back on the aircraft carrier and the pilots watch Drew Carey on satellite TV.
      Carter: Hey, American soldiers died in Iraq.
      Luka: Yeah, but your children don't starve to death while your men fight. Your women aren't raped. (long pause) I remember watching the television, reading the newspapers, saying that we had to fight. And then my family was gone. I couldn't remember why it was all so important. What difference did it all make? My children were dead.
