IRISH: This is the Croaghaun lighthouse on Achill Island. Your call.
NIMITZ: You f**** Irish think you're so damn good! Coming to our country and running the police and fire brigades. I'm f**** sick of it all! If you don't like America then go home!
IRISH: I am home. This is Ireland, not America. Why don't YOU get out of our territorial waters and go home?
NIMITZ: Well... because... um...
IRISH: Hah! You can't get out of this one yank! I'd like to see you and your pretty warships try to sail through an island!
NIMITZ: USS Arkansas, are you listening in on this?
ARKANSAS: Yes Nimitz.
NIMITZ: Please launch nuclear attack upon Irish Lighthouse at 53.981° North, 10.204°West. 10 Megaton yield.
IRISH: Hold on a second!
NIMITZ: Set warhead for groundburst.
IRISH: No wait!
ARKANSAS: Roger Nimitz, missile launched. May God have mercy on their petty souls.
