Bruce Willis to make Iraq war film

From The Sunday Times, via Michelle Malkin.

ANGERED by negative portrayals of the conflict in Iraq, Bruce Willis, the Hollywood star, is to make a pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy.

It will be based on the exploits of the heavily decorated members of Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has spent the past year battling insurgents in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul.


Willis visited the war zone with his rock and blues band, the Accelerators, in 2003.

“I am baffled to understand why the things I saw happening in Iraq are not being reported,” he told MSNBC, the American news channel.


Willis said it would be wrong for Americans to give up on Iraq just as progress is being made. “The Iraqi people want to live in a world where they can move from their homes to the market and not have to fear being killed,” he said. “I mean, doesn’t everybody want that?”

The movie will be based upon the writing of Michael Yon.

Good for you, Mr Willis! It'll make a nice change from the usual hate-America-first drivel coming from the Hollywood elites.

I watched "The Killing Fields" last night...seen it many times and a very powerful film. There is a scene where John Malkovich's character is photographing the US embassy and smirks as he sees a marine lowering the US flag and scurrying back inside the building. I thought, yup, that is exactly the attitude that so many in Hollywood had and continue to have.

A smirk implying that the US is somehow getting what it deserves, when the reality is that the US was the only thing that stood between Cambodians and the Chinese-trained Khmer Rouge psychopaths. To say that the Hollywood elite lack any perception of context is to state the obvious. To question their patriotism is, of course, unacceptable.
