Dutch redux

Until I came across this recently while doing research for my Dutch review, I never realized the Special Forces team in Predator was a private military organization. That must have been one hell of a corporate after-action review. “Let’s see. Every single member of your team is dead except you. You spent or lost $10,000 in weapons, gear and ammunition; your CIA liaison is dead, damaging our working relationship and resulting in their refusal to pay the balance of their invoice; and you ‘inadvertently’ caused a small nuclear explosion that nearly set off a missile exchange between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Oh, and you blame all of this on, and I quote, an ‘extra-terrestrial creature that hunted you and your team for sport.’

“Major Schaefer, it may be time to consider a new line of work.”
