'American Sniper' Is Almost Too Dumb to Criticize | Rolling Stone
haven't seen it. he says "Eastwood, who surely knows better," (... but I wonder?)

"The problem of course is that there's no such thing as 'winning' the War on Terror militarily. In fact the occupation led to mass destruction, hundreds of thousands of deaths, a choleric lack of real sanitation, epidemic unemployment, and political radicalization that continues to this day to spread beyond Iraq's borders.

"Yet the movie glosses over all of this, and makes us think that killing Mustafa was some kind of decisive accomplishment -- the single shot that kept terrorists out of the coffee shops of San Francisco or whatever."  matt_taibbi  review  movie  film  clint_eastwood  iraq  war  politics  forrest_gump  bradley_cooper  chris_kyle  american_sniper  2015  2010s  soldier  hero  violence  psychopath  fiction  disturbing  criticism  vietnam  veteran  cambodia  laos
