These people that are shooting back at you, they're trying to kill you and you should be trying to kill them. If there was somebody wounded and laying there I would put a bullet in them you know? It's war, it's not a game. I see all these politicians like Ted Kennedy who's a murderer in his own right, talking all this s***-your sending people out there to fight a war...this is a war!
