The world was shocked earlier this week when ISIS released a video of them burning Jordanian pilot Lt. Moath al-Kasasbeh alive. Afterwards, during a meeting with world leaders, the King of Jordan used a Clint Eastwood quote to promise he would get revenge.
“He said there is going to be retribution like ISIS hasn’t seen,” said Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr., a Marine Corps veteran who was in the meeting with the king. “He mentioned ‘Unforgiven’ and he mentioned Clint Eastwood, and he actually quoted a part of the movie.”
According to Political Insider, Hunter would not say what specific quote the king used, but he did say it was what Eastwood’s character says when he says how he will deliver his retribution.
The quote he is likely referring to is when Eastwood’s character, William Munny, says “Any man I see out there, I’m gonna kill him. Any son of a bitch takes a shot at me, I’m not only going to kill him, I’m going to kill his wife and all his friends and burn his damn house down.”
Nothing like the words of the great Clint Eastwood to send fears down our enemy’s spines. Watch your back, ISIS, because we are coming for you!
