The James Bond movie "You Only Live Twice"...circa 1967..
was on last nite, and Nancy Sinatra sang the title song
That reminded me, that we have a secret weapon, that's only
been used once before...that might help us win the war in Irag.
In the Waco standoff....the FBI used their most dreaded weapon
Day and night they played Nancy's "These Boots Were Made for
Walking" on loudspeakers, directed at the encampment.
I also learned something from the movie...as the Japanese host was explaining to 007,
"In Japan, the men come first, the women second"
Now that I think of it...

Lol, it's been awhile since I watched that one. Sean Connery didn't make a very convincing Japanese, if I recall correctly. Reminded me of John Wayne playing Gengis Khan in "The Conqueror". A Mongol with a "cowboy accent" /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You're right. When do you see a 6 foot Japanese male with a british accent?

DG - this movie wasn't as bad as Never Say Never Again
