This corporate war is fictional. Any resemblance to a real privatized war, immoral or otherwise, is purely coincidental.

Leave it to the media (you know who owns them) to take the immorally bad position the U.S. is in and put consentual sex, cowboys and funny rich foreigners in it and everything becomes numb and therefore OK.

And besides make a shitload of money.

Looks like a golan globus production, I wonder where Chuck Norris is?

I really don’t see the point to making films which light-heartedly depict this subject matter. John is supposedly a “real activist,” but I guess he’s a Jolie Activist where he only talks the talk. Really, if you’re going to make a statement, make the statement. Charlie Chaplin did in ‘The Great Dictator.’

It’s a travesty how people actually think they influence thought by mitigating the attachment and emotion involved with these real world problems through comedy and Hollywood flash. All it serves is to ridicule the situations on the ground to the point they are only an afterthought of the audience. Good job, media.

Perhaps now people might be able to connect the Dots. Should send it back about 40 yrs for the Prologue- How Cheney,Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz got the whole ball rolling.
The ‘70s explain the current Horror flick being played out Now - coming soon to a town near you.
If you want to see how THEY plan it to end - just visit any Sermon by Hagee (‘Armegeddon’ Advocate and Activitist, with Politcal power make the Epilogue Reality). I am now Terrified by my own Gov’t (and their enablers the Incs, Religious Zealots and foreign Sponsors)
