    Political: George Bush is Harrison Ford

    I'm going against my no political talk just because I have noticed something that is quite strange about Hollywood and a certain movie and how it mirrors what is going on in todays politics.

    Have you ever seen Air Force One? Its a movie where Harrison Ford plays the President of the United States in the middle of a terrorist crisis. In the movie, Ford is portrayed as a no nonsense, ethical and moral president who takes unilateral, premptive action against terrorist nations in the face of political pressure and against the advice of his advisors...Sound familiar? The President in this movie was meant to portray the embodiement of the ideal American president? Please go back and watch the movie, You'll be supprised how much it mirrors todays situation.

    "terrorist nations".

    yeah.

    like iraq? Ô_o

    like iraq, who of course attacked america? Ô_o

    Stop it. This discussion won't lead anywhere.
    1st of all, Hollywood movies dont mirror the reality, especially not the ones by Wolfgang Petersen like AF One.

    2nd: The war against that terror nation lasted a couple o' days or weeks and was in Afghanistan. That's not what the fuzz is about. It's about the lack of reason for this war in Iraq. Get it, this was no humanitarian action. Nobody ever gave a fuck about the humanitarian situation and the regime in iraq. You cannot force change in a nation from outside like this. ... wtf. I'm discussing this? That's stupid. As said before, stop this.

    I think movies show mostly an idealized version of reality,so it can be funny to look older ones,Rambo III for example.

    Generally I would agree, Hollywood don't mirror reality, but go and watch the movie again and see if what I say is not true.

    In the movie, he states they the US will make it policy to take premptive action (that means action BEFORE we are attacked by that country) and that the US would not hide behind deplomacy and sanctions. That is almost verbatem from the movie.

    Of course they show the ideal in Hollywood. My point is that exactly. It easy to say we want to do the right thing, but when it comes to reality, we don't have the testies to back it up.

    I didn't even consider that. he lost me at the "no nonsense, ethical, moral" and "unilateral" part.

    Watch Rambo III. It has Ramb fighting alonside the brave people of afghanistan against the ruthless Sovjets who use their superior technology to force a regime on the noble nomads of afghanistand. I kid you not. The movie was released only in '88, see how fast public opinion can shift?

    Ok EXO, forget the comparison between G.W. and the president in Air Force One. Just watch the movie, and think how they are trying to portray the president in the movie. Is he a good president or a bad one. Ford usually plays the good guy. Listen to the policies he makes. If you take an honest look at them, you will see what I mean. I know its just a movie, and it is all make believe, but it is uncanny how similar a situation it is.

    I understand what your saying Didden. But I'm talking about right and wrong policies. There was a time when we were on Sadams side too. We are partly responsibe for building up his arms back when we were having trouble with Iran.

    How about you watch Three Kings so you can see how badly we fucked up last time and just where we're heading this time. Cause we're in the same position. Liberation my ass.

    Harrison Ford could speak intelligently in AF1... that right there puts his far above Little Bitch Jr.

    Well, I don't make my vote on what Hollywood says we have done wrong or right. That was not my point. If you want to make your decision on what Ice-T and Eminem or even Harrison Ford for that matter say, thats your business. I was drawing a comparison between policies. I have seen Three Kings, and Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan. If America left a war at 1500 deaths back on D-Day we would have not even reached the beach. American's want freedom, but do we want it enough to die for it anymore.
