"I am tired of war. The relentless crump and shudder of explosions, and the whineskip- puff of bullets that miss me by inches; my aching lower back; the cynical global machinations of the military-industrial complex. Sometimes I have to find a quiet place to sit and rest just to calm my shaken mind. War is hell.
On the other hand, I'm really stoked about increasing my tally so far of 162 headshots, and I've just acquired a new bolt-on gadget for my beloved M4 custom. Plus, for all the 'war economy' talk (a lurid sci-fi version of Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine), there's nothing more relaxing than going shopping between missions. For guns, I'm as happy and docile a consumer as anyone else. And I can't help but look forward to trying out my new toys on the next unsuspecting mercenary. War is great!"
