Same ol' "USA, USA, USA!"...Propaganda BS.
Amazing how most are smart enough to see the atrocities/war crimes committed by the US military in those far off lands, but put out a movie with a
famous actor and heroic story line...reality disappears with the popcorn.
Watched half, seen where it was going... *poof*...gone.
You claim you watched half of this film , so please tell me what part was propaganda?
The opening montage shows the real life selection and training of SEAL's including many that were in the film which you probably didn't realize.
It then moves into telling of the bond that warfare creates among those who have gone through it. I don't expect you to understand that bond and that
is okay. It makes no difference who the enemy is facing death creates that scenario.
My father was a fireman while my uncle was the Chief in another towns fire department. I grew up in that setting spending many nights around a
different group of brothers. During down time they would bond and speak to each other in a similar manner. My uncle died with 2 other firemen trying
to rescue 3 children they never knew and I can tell you at each of their funerals the other men in his department apologized to each of the families
for not being there for their brothers when they needed them most. Again, I don't expect you to understand that bond and I only know it from the
outside looking in. If you don't believe me then feel free to PM me and Ill give you all the articles and links to the scenario I mention above.
Next it goes on to show the chaos that is warfare. How the best laid plans fall apart when comm systems and the tools of the trade fail. This is
applicable in any field where complex operations take place. It doesn't matter if you are a surgeon , an auto mechanic or a network engineer. Things
can and will go horribly wrong at some point and all you can deal with is what is right in front of you.
Finally it goes on to show the immense power that local customs have in places like Afghanistan and how those customs can change lives no matter the
Left my popcorn which was my biggest regret.
The only regret you should have had was that you took a seat that someone else who wanted to be there could have used.
