>>What I didn’t expect was that it would be an aesthetic jumble and quite boring. Nevertheless, “Vice” led the pack of Golden Globe nominations with six and is an early favorite for the Best Picture Oscar.
They have to vote for this video so they can find out what’s in it.
You think they actually WATCH this dreck?
I enjoy reading Roger Simon but this...?
Hollyweirdos were okay with us going to war against Libya and even engaging in a war crime murder of a POW with the audacious boast from Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, “WE came, WE saw, HE DIED! HAW HAW HAW!!!”
>(Interestingly, Hillary was one of the last, leading Obama, if we are to believe what we read, to go after Gaddafi, even after the Libyan dictator had yelled “uncle.”)
What was “neo-con” about toppling governments on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring” was a Molotov cocktail thrown at the Muddled East. And we financed and supported it. Barrack’s so-called “Third Way” be boasted of at the United Nations.
It bashes Chaney and Bush so what’s not for Hollywierd to love?
It depicts Cheney shooing his shotgun and hitting Whittington from the back seat of a vehicle. WTF?
“To many, if not most, of us something was seriously awry with the Arab Middle East. The downtrodden people there had been brutally oppressed by despots and fundamentalists for centuries. That must have explained why al-Qaeda rose up. If only we could liberate them, they would be hugely grateful and choose our ways just as all people naturally would. No more rape rooms and homosexuals being thrown off roofs.
Obviously, we were mistaken. We didn’t reckon with the overweening power of Islam and tribalism, nor with the hatred of us. But the original impulse was not to steal oil. It was actually idealistic”
As big a line of BS as has ever came off the pen of any ‘journalist’ or writer.
It was empire building in the service of the New World Order, doing things we had no business doing, to people who hadn’t done anything to us, to enrich one-world neocon enabled mega-corporations. It was a waste of blood and treasure then just as anything we do over there now is (outside of giving aid to Israel, the only democracy and from whom we do get intelligence).
There’s distortion and there’s distortion. You can’t expect Hollywood to tell the literal truth about anything - especially where politics are concerned - but who really feels like putting in much energy defending Dick Cheney?
I don’t know if the film is good or bad, but who would pay money to see it in the first place?
Will Ferrell’s movie Holmes & Watson is probably more historically accurate and it stars fictional characters.
