* HarsherInHindsight: The above incident? ''TruthInTelevision'' as of [[http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/22/world/africa/in-scramble-for-land-oxfam-says-ugandans-were-pushed-out.html?_r=4&scp=3&sq=uganda&st=cse 2011]]... [[RealityIsUnrealistic except]] it wasn't for an oil pipeline like in the movie - it was for '''[[GreenAesop carbon credits!]]'''
* MoralEventHorizon: Bob mentions at one point that the bad guys even shot his ''dog''. Presumably, it was that one guy who had a problem with it earlier.
** In ''Point of Impact'', [[spoiler:Just about everyone agrees that Colonel Shreck, [=RamDyne=], and anyone else present lost their "we make the hard choices" credentials when they massacred a small village to make their point to El Salvadoran guerrillas.]]
** Aside from the dog, take your choice: The bad guys ''annihilate an entire African village'' just to make an example of what will happen if any village protests the placing of an oil duct (they didn't asked to place the pipe, were rebuked, and killed them all-''they just killed them all, period''), kill an ''archbishop'' that was going to present evidence of this action, and were planning to pull the same tactics on Central America before Swagger kills them all. ''And this is only what we see on screen''.
* OneSceneWonder: The elderly firearms expert. Not only does he fill in a lingering plot hole, but ''every line he says'' is in turns quotable, meaningful, and hilarious.
