'''Konrad''': It takes a strong man to deny what's right in front of him. [[UnreliableNarrator And if the truth is undeniable, you create your own.]] The truth, Walker, is that you're here because you wanted to feel like something you're not: ''[[WhamLine a hero]]''. [[OutDamnedSpot I'm here because you can't accept what you've done.]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation It broke you.]] You needed someone to blame, so you cast it on me, ''[[DeadAllAlong a dead man.]]'' I know the truth is hard to hear Walker, but it's time. You're all that's left, and we can't live this lie forever.

->Let me preface this by saying that as a person, I respect you. You stuck to your guns and refused to play ball when life cheated you. But as a soldier? You're a disgrace to the uniform. There are people out there who have died, that would not have died if you were there to save them. People just like your friends in Rainbow. When you're hunting on a black op? Yeah. It's about stopping the bad guy. But when you're fighting a war it isn't about the enemy you're fighting. It's about the people you're fighting with, and their safety. You elevate it above yours, no matter what. Period. End of sentence. Now, do us all a favor, and get the fuck out of my sight before I decide putting a bullet between your eyes isn't just my orders, but a favor to the world!
