Courage Under Fire

Subtitles by Phaeton
You may hear the bombs now.
If you're still with us,
you can hear the bombs now.

They are hitting the centre of the city.
Now we can hear explosions...
off in the distance
to the west of central Baghdad.

Clearly I've never been there,
but this feels like
we're in the centre of hell.

The 28 countries...
with forces in the Gulf area...
have exhausted all reasonable efforts...
to reach a peaceful resolution,
have no choice...
but to drive Saddam
from Kuwait by force.

A great battle has been initiated.
The mother of all battles.
Our objectives...
in the Persian Gulf are clear,
our goals defined.
Iraq must withdraw from Kuwait...
completely, immediately,
and without condition.
