    Apocalypse Now - Wikiquote

    I just watched this again after 30 years. What frightened me the most was this scene and I thought about Islamic jihadists. How do you defeat an enemy that can kill without judgment?

    How can we fight a war when Navy seals are charged with slapping someone?

    How long will the war on terror last?

    Cappola had to film this in the darkness because Brando showed up to the set so fat Cappola felt no one would believe he could be an Army Colonel. (Too much naked lounging on his private island eating ice cream stuffed lobsters.)

    Remember, this was before the Norman Schwarzkopf era.

    I would have just change the character to Air Force Colonel.
