If you thought DU was crazy, there is IMDB boards.
Typical troop basher.by RayPeterson (Sat Jan 14 2012 18:40:05) Ignore this User | Report Abuse
I wonder if the protagonists will kill a bunch of non-whites during the film's climax. What do you think?
Make no mistake, these SEALS are heroes. They live off government cash while defending you and me from evil brown-skinned people. I wonder if impressionable young Americans will see this film. Maybe it will encourage them to live out their war hero fantasies, impressing their family and friends by.... abandoning their family and friends to defend U.S. oil interests (while living off taxpayers).
All jokes aside, this film is despicable; America's "defense" budget is out of control. Can we stop encouraging young people to do moronic things? America's outrageous debt crisis was created in large part because of stupid military spending. People need to wake up. Valor does not mean starting wars, killing innocents (100k Iraqi civilians dead), and creating enemies for profit.
Bring the troops home. Put them in school. Read books. Say "no" to mindless propaganda.

Your view is a fantasy: you imagine that the military is some poor repressed group when the reality is anything but. It is bloated, over-worshipped, and frequently counter-productive.
fraud. fraud. everywhere. Your imagination that the military is misrepresented is equally unreal as your fantasy that America is under constant threat.

The OP is absolutely spot on with everything said so far in this thread. Fear is the most valuable commodity in the universe. Our government knows this. They also know most Americans are dumb as $hit and will eat up anything that is spoon fed to them. In a group of 10 people you'll be lucky to find 3 who can individually think on their own and for themselves.
The founding fathers of this country are rolling in their graves...
