  •  More on "Scorpio" the movie (0+ / 0-)

    There is the IMDB plot summary for Scorpio:

    Cross is an old hand at the CIA, in charge of assassinating high-ranking foreign personalities who are an obstacle to the policies of the USA. He often teams up with Frenchman Jean Laurier, alias "Scorpio", a gifted free-lance operative. One day, the CIA orders Scorpio to eliminate Cross -- and leaves him no choice but to obey. Scorpio is cold-blooded and very systematic; however, as a veteran agent, Cross knows many tricks. He can also rely upon a network of unusual personal contacts, some dating back to the troubled years preceding WWII. A lethal game of hide-and-seek is programmed, but what are the true motives of every single player?
    Here are two quotes from Scoprio that will give you the favor of it as it relates to the current subject matter:
    After Scorpio carries out the contract killing of a mythical Arab leader with ties to Moscow:
    Scorpio: If Zim was America's man, why kill him?
    Cross: For your education, Zim dead, dead at the hands of the Left serves his government and mine better that Zim alive, but it's not his death that's important, it's who will have appeared to kill him that counts.
    Cross: There's a room just down the hall from McLeod's office where grown men play a game. It's a bit like Monopoly, only more people get hurt. There's no good and no bad. The object is not to win, but not to lose - and the only rule is to stay in the game
