“Your Commie has no regard for human life, not even his own. And for this reason, men, I want to impress upon you the need for extreme watchfulness. The enemy may come individually, or he may come in strength. He may even come in the uniform of our own troops. But however he comes, we must stop him. We must not allow him to gain entrance to this base.” - Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper (Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)
