Sword in the Desert (1949)
Lowell Gilmore: Maj. Stephens
Col. Bruce Evans : What an extraordinary people. Do they think we relish our position as policemen in this god-forsaken land?
Maj. Stephens : Perhaps they prefer that we forsake it, Sir - and let God police it.
Col. Bruce Evans : But we have agreed to leave, if they can reach an agreement with the Arabs on partition. But if we pull out before there's an agreement between them, the entire Middle East may go up in flames. And with it, the world. No, Stephens, this isn't a Jewish or Arab or British problem. This is the problem of all mankind.
