    Hooray, another fantasy movie for leftys and foreign finger waggers, and from a bunch of Hollywood idiots who have not even been to a forward area, and do not understand any of the complexities of war or the sacrifices being made there right now. Disgusting commercialism at the price of a soldier's honor, great job Hollywood.

    Anti military or anti Bush administration?

    From the article:
    ....when his search for phantom weapons of mass destruction has led him to uncover a web of lies, spin and ideological wish-fulfillment

    Yeah, I prefer "No End in Sight" and "Bush's War." ... among many others telling the realities or Iraq though direct testimony and interviews of the commanders... Men who are taking orders from chickenhawk policy makers who've also not even been to a forward area, nor understand any of the comlexities of war or the sacrifices being made.

    Can't slap the lazy "hollywood" cop out on any of those films.

    uhhmm, maybe because the movie is about the US struggle in Iraq, about an American Officer in particular starring Matt Damon, an American actor, and filmed in Hollywood, which is in America...juz thinkin out loud here...lol
