This is a rough story to watch no matter your political views … war is hell on all sides. This is a movie that liberals, conservatives, libertarians, and Sheeple should appreciate.
I teared up during the movie and resolved to be more vocal about these girls and boys sacrificing themselves for the politicians, bureaucrats, and Crony Capitalists benefit.
Like the “Wounded Warrior” commercials, this movie torqued me up.
I’m a little L libertarian, who is anti-war, pro-life, and pro-choice. When the bad guys come here, then we can use force. If they seriously threaten us, then we should NUKE them. BUT, we better be sure that this is a “Just War”. AND, we all should pay for it; not borrow the money from China to make the military – industrial complex, that Ike warned us about, rich.
Bring the girls and boys home NOW!
Have a foreign policy like Switzerland with a defense to match.
“Only way to win is not to play at all” — from the movie ‘War Games’
