Well.. I think he was Syrian not Mexican. :lol:

While walking along the highway of death I was in a maze of wrecked vehicles. I had noticed three T-72's parked close by as if they were in a motorpool. They were untouched. I thought that waas really odd.

I came around a truck and came face to face with an Arab in uniform with an AK-47. I had my M-16A2 as well. We sized each other up for a few seconds and then uneasily went our separate ways. I'm sure if either one of us had made a move it would have been go time!

My guess is that he was a coalition troop. It was pretty intense there for a few moments. He had a long beard and had a beret on.

In theory 'The Bad' might have chosen to shoot 'The Ugly' and 'The Good' could have taken his time to aim carefully and kill 'The Bad'. But that would have been a less than moral ending. Instead, 'The Good' outdrew 'The Bad' and wounded him. He then shot him to death in cold blood while 'The Ugly' was looking for bullets.
Of course, if 'The Ugly' had died in the Mexican Standoff, they wouldn't have had the great ending.



Uhhh.... ok. Good movie but I don't get the relevance to the post. AND, this post is four years old
