  • "'The first briefing you get when you get off the plane in Kuwait, and you get off the plane and you're holding a duffel bag in each hand,' Millard remembered. 'You've got your weapon slung. You've got a web sack on your back. You're dying of heat. You're tired. You're jet-lagged. Your mind is just full of goop. And then you're scared on top of that, because, you know, you're in Kuwait, you're not in the States anymore... So fear sets in, too. And they sit you into this little briefing room and you get this briefing about how, you know, you can't trust any of these f---ing hajis, because all these f---king hajis are going to kill you. And 'haji' is always used as a term of disrespect and usually with the F-word in front of it.'"
    - Chris Hedges, 'Collateral Damage: What It Really Means When America Goes to War', 2008.
