From the movie Sniper (1993)
A sniper and his spotter need to take a bad guy out at his hacienda. The sniper explains the situation to the spotter:
Most logical position would be to take our shots from that treeline over there but they're gonna be expecting that so somehow we got to get in the clear to make our shots.
What does it mean? My guess is they need to make their shots from an open terrain but that sounds like suicide, not exactly a sniper work.
