The clip pep talk from Jarhead (2005) with Peter Sarsgaard
Attention on deck!
Take your seats.
Good afternoon, Marines. Good afternoon, sir!
Jesus, did you just land in a war zone or a funeral parlor?
Good afternoon, Marines! Good afternoon, sir!
I just felt my dick move.
For those of you who don't know me...
I'm Lieutenant Colonel Kazinski, your battalion commander.
We are now a part of Operation Desert Shield.
Now, just north of us...
Saddam Hussein's got one million Iraqi soldiers.
And some of those boys have been fighting...
since you were nine or ten years old.
They are tough.
They will stop at nothing.
They've used nerve gas against the Iranians and the Kurds.
Now, here's a picture.
I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking, "Let's kick ass and take names...
"and end this shit the day before yesterday. "
But the bureaucrats have a lot of jawboning to do.
So for now, these Iraqis who have raped and pillaged...
poor little Kuwait are not yet in our gun sights.
Our current mission is to protect the oil fields...
of our good friends in the Kingdom of Saud...
until further notice.
And gentlemen, I'm talking a lot of oil.
A lot of oil.
So you will hydrate, you will train...
you will adjust to this desert, and you'll hydrate some more.
And you will be ready.
You will maintain a constant state of suspicious alertness...
and one day soon...
