Transcript:
Bad for speaking. Makes my throat dry.
General, I'm afraid we've been having
some trouble about your broadcast.
Well, I'm used to trouble. I'm a soldier.
Yes, the er...authorities...
..think that it's a little ill-timed
and might be better postponed.
Think it's a little ill-timed?
Who has been saying that? Why?
Well, General, you know in times of war...
Don't talk to me about war.
No, of course, that would be...grotesque.
I have been asked to describe in this broadcast
my views on the cause of the retreat
and its aspects for the future. There they are.
I've served my country for 44 years.
What was your position before this?
- I was a lawyer.
- What?
- A lawyer.
- A lawyer? Well, I was a soldier.
And before that I suppose you were at college.
And I was a soldier.
And I was a soldier when you were a baby.
And before you were born, sir,
when you were nothing but a toss-up between
a girl's and a boy's name, I was a soldier.
