Movie "Platoon" Part II

Okie... i know i am lame... posting so many post about the same thing...

But it's interesting... and i am talking about the 1986 (more than 21 years ago) movie "platoon".

Found some more interesting pictures and "quotes" from websites...

Above: Quite a nice scene of a machine gunner watching a huey chopper coming in with ammo supplies on a knoll.

Above: Another nice scene, whereby they are going out on a patrol to an ambush site, with the lighting striking in the back ground. In the SAF exercies, it's Cat 1 and all troops will be under some shelter...

Above: Awesome view of the sun setting, while Chris Taylor having a smoke break from latrine duties. Taking out the shit buckets and setting fires to them... A super nice scene...

Above: One of the saddest part of the movie. Sarge Elias was shot by his own people (SGT Barnes), and left to be hunted by the NVA (North Vietnamese Soldiers), while the rest are watching helpless from the choppers.

Above: Sgt Barnes, with full fury in his eyes as he was about to club Taylor.

Above: And Taylor, at the mercy of Sgt Barnes as he was about to be clubbed.

And the "quotes"

Junior: "Hey, white boy. What you waiting for? That hole ain't going to dig itself."
Barnes: "Yo. Saddle up. Lock and load."
Taylor: "I figured why should just the poor kids go off to war and the rich kids always get away with it."

King: "Oh, I see. What we got here is a crusader."
Captain: "And I can promise you something. If I find out there was an illegal killing, there will be a Court Martial. Right now I need every man in the field."
Wolfe: "Hey, don't worry about it, Sergeant. Elias won't be able to prove a thing. He's a troublemaker. Elias is..."

Barnes: "Elias is a water walker, like them politicians in Washington trying to fight this war with one hand tied around their balls."
Taylor: "Well, Elias is still out there, Sarge."

Barnes: "Taylor, I'll get him. You get Crawford in now before you Article Fifteen both your asses."
Rhah: "Barnes been shot seven time and he ain't dead. Does that mean anything to you, huh? Barnes ain't meant to die." (87K)
Taylor: "They sent us back into the valley the next day, about two thousand meters from Cambodia, into a battalion perimeter. It felt like we were returning to the scene of a crime."
Taylor: "Somewhere out there was the entire a Hundred and Forty First NVA Regiment"
Captain: "Where are you going to pull back to? They're all over the perimeter. Now you be advised, you will hold in place and you will fight. That means you, Lieutenant. Bravo Six out."
Taylor: "I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy, we fought ourselves and the enemy was in us."
