Thin Line Twixt Reality and Fiction

After reading the piece about Condoleeza Rice in Bad Attitudes, I kept thinking that I'd heard this line in her her endorsement of Mitt Romney before. 
“The only thing that people [in other countries] dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all.”
And then I remembered.  It was in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket when the Marine colonel in tells Joker, 
"We are here to help the Vietnamese, because inside every gook there is an American trying to get out."

Same-same thinking.  Same-same results.
