Colonel Statter:
Schroeder, if we capture 7,000 tons of rubber, it's going to save thousands of lives and shorten the war against Hitler.
Robert Crain:
Colonel Statter, besides from the obvious suicidal aspects of your scheme, I personally don't believe that war is ever a solution to political conflict. What do wars ever prove? Men, women, and children are slaughtered, and a generation later, friends are enemies, and enemies are friends and the whole stupid cycle starts over again. Certainly, I have great appreciation for your noble effort, and your interest to save thousands of lives. But excuse me if I seem to be concerned for my own life.

00:00:01.054 --> 00:00:02.708
Schroeder...
00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:05.753
if we capture 7,000 tons of rubber...
00:00:06.045 --> 00:00:10.997
it's gonna save thousands of lives and shorten the war against Hitler.
00:00:10.174 --> 00:00:11.425
Col Statter...
00:00:12.259 --> 00:00:16.514
besides from the obvious suicidal aspects of your scheme...
00:00:17.515 --> 00:00:22.103
I personally don't believe that war is ever a solution to political conflict.
00:00:22.353 --> 00:00:24.146
What do wars ever prove?
00:00:24.073 --> 00:00:26.982
Men, women, and children are slaughtered...
00:00:27.999 --> 00:00:28.984
and a generation later...
00:00:29.151 --> 00:00:31.057
friends are enemies, and enemies are friends...
00:00:31.654 --> 00:00:34.099
and the whole stupid cycle starts over again.
00:00:36.325 --> 00:00:40.412
Certainly, I have great appreciation for your noble effort...
00:00:40.496 --> 00:00:43.958
and your interest to save thousands of lives.
00:00:44.667 --> 00:00:49.999
But excuse me if I seem to be concerned for my own life.
00:00:49.255 --> 00:00:53.259
It's unfortunate you're rated so highly by the Gestapo, Herr Schroeder.
00:00:53.551 --> 00:00:55.928
Because I'm told their penalties for deserters...
00:00:56.003 --> 00:00:58.043
are somewhat more theatrical than ours.
00:00:59.003 --> 00:01:03.978
No, they hold you under house arrest until after the war is over and then...
00:01:04.999 --> 00:01:07.999
they give you a fair trial, as they do in England, I'm sure.
00:01:07.069 --> 00:01:09.733
You realise you're my prisoner?
00:01:10.006 --> 00:01:12.001
I can have you transported back to England...
00:01:12.361 --> 00:01:15.489
and parachute you out of an RAF plane over Germany.
00:01:15.999 --> 00:01:18.001
At the same time, a valuable English officer...
00:01:19.535 --> 00:01:22.999
held by the Germans, will be dropped over England.
00:01:24.331 --> 00:01:27.001
Exchange of hostages is as old as war itself.
00:01:29.001 --> 00:01:32.506
Perhaps blackmail is a little older, huh?
00:01:33.001 --> 00:01:38.554
I thought the Holy British Empire indulged in more modern ethics.
00:01:40.264 --> 00:01:44.143
Some arrangements are being made for you to board that ship in Tokyo.
00:01:44.268 --> 00:01:47.938
But even if I am put aboard that ship, it still might reach Germany.
00:01:48.006 --> 00:01:49.273
That's right.
00:01:49.523 --> 00:01:51.901
Or you may not be able to disarm all the charges...
00:01:51.999 --> 00:01:53.485
and the ship might be scuttled.
00:01:54.999 --> 00:01:56.655
In which case, you're likely to drown.
00:01:56.864 --> 00:02:00.999
Or be rescued by the Germans or by the Allies.
00:02:00.999 --> 00:02:04.121
In that event, we'll still be able to make use of you.
