Buddy:   "The Governor's on top of it, and if the feds get nosey, we hear about it and make a call.   Then they're called off."   He was looking around the countryside and continued, "Why the hell would anyone want to fight for a sh*t-hole like this?"


Mike:   Shaking his head in awe, answered, "What we do has nothing to do with preserving a country's integrity -- it's just business, and third world countries see their destiny as defeating borders and expanding.   The more of this mentality we can produce, the greater our wealth.   We train and we arm -- that's our job.   And, in return, we get a product far more valuable than the money for a gun.   We're paid with "product."   And we credit top dollar for product."


Buddy looked confused.


Mike:   "Look, one gun and 3,000 rounds of ammo is $1,200.   A kilo of "product" is about $1,000.   We credit the Contras $1,500 for every kilo.   That's top dollar for a kilo of cocaine.   It's equivalent to the American K-Mart special: "Buy four, get one free."   On our side, we spend $1,200 for a kilo and sell it for $12,000 to $15,000.   Now, that's a profit center.   And the market is much greater for the product than for weapons.   It's just good business sense, understand?"


Buddy:   "Damn!   So you guys promote wars and revolutions to provide weapons for drugs, and we provide the non-numbered parts to change out and we all win.   Damn that's good!"


Mike:   "It's good when it works.   But someone is -- how do you say? -- has his hand in the coffer."


Buddy:   Responding on the defensive, "Well, we get our ten percent right off the top and that's plenty.   GOFUS can make it go a long way."


Mike:   "Who is GOFUS?"
