Black Hawk Down quotes,Black Hawk Down (2001)
Director: Ridley Scott,Stars: Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Tom Sizemore
Leave no man behind
When I go home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do you do it man? What, you some kinda war junkie?" You know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.
Y'know what I think? Don't really matter what I think. Once that first bullet goes past your head, politics and all that shit just goes right out the window.
Nobody asks to be a hero, it just sometimes turns out that way.
Pilla: Colonel, they're shooting at us! Colonel, they're shooting at us!
McKnight: Well shoot back!
Good luck, boys. Be careful. Nobody gets left behind.
Look, these people, they have no jobs, no food, no education, no future. I just figure that we have two things we can do. Help, or we can sit back and watch a country destroy itself on CNN. Right?
Once that first bullet goes past your head, politics and all that shit just goes right out the window.
