Captain, I'm not offering to hire 'dirt-suckers.' We are in rather dire need of good military advisors.
A good military advisor would look at the political situation here and run for his life.
That's just the sort of insight we're looking for.
All of my top advisors did exactly that. Had I know they were going to bolt, I would have used stronger chains.
You make it sound enticing but I'm still going to have to say "No."
