battle for haditha.
it has turned my stomach, not because of what it is about, but for the way this ove-liberal disgusting writer made such an anti-american movie, sympathizing with terrorists, and painting a horrible picture of our troops.
i know many marines, and not one of them acts the way they did in this movie.
as someone on another site pointed out:
" the title is wrong. I find it extremely disrespectful that they used "they battle for haditha" as the name. Anyone who knows anything on the subject is aware that the battle for haditha was an operation in which the marines took control of the city. Not one shot was fired but (correct me if i am wrong) 8 marines were killed. Now, using the name of an operation in which marines risked there lives, and lost them, to take over the city and only detained people for what is otherwise known as the "haditha massacre" is ridiculous and disrespectful.
The second problem I have with the movie is as far as the event it is fairly inaccurate and is biased. Failing to even try to cover both sides of the story until perhaps the end the movie got on my nerves after a while. It was not 1 Humvee that got blown up and 1 killed, 2 wounded. It was 1 AAV that got blown up. Killing 5 and the sixth found slaughtered a few miles down the road. Whether or not the marines purposely killed the civilians, whether it was routine and they treated the houses as extremely hostile or not or whether insurgents killed them we will never know. But as the movie points out the man Told the little girl (9 years old not 12) what to say. which is entirely possible. Also note that the Man who made and promoted the tape was of the Hamurabi human rights group, furthering the idea that it could be a setup."
i am enraged right now beyond belief. movies like this would not be allowed in other countries, yet someone has to make them just because they can.
