In Stanley Kubrick’s classic war movie Full Metal Jacket, there is a scene in a conference room one day after the Tet offensive began in 1968 (the Tet offensive demonstrated that the Vietnam war was unwinnable, and that the enemy was far stronger than had been realized). The lieutenant gives a speech to his troops, the writers and photographers of the Stars and Stripes newspaper, which concludes: “In other words, it’s a huge shit sandwich, and we’re all going to have to take a bite”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpO0OV4mfvo&t=2s
