I have never reviewed a moving propaganda before, but I thought since I watch it all, why not tap in.
Lions for Lambs is a very interesting attempt to rationalize going to war against two countries whose leaders decided to bite the hand that fed it. First against Osama Bin Laden, then Saddam Hussein. The only true words in the entire movie were, “Rome is burning”.
I don’t mind being called a “conspiracy theorist”, because, first, I concluded there was a conspiracy and second, theory is based on scientific observation and experiment.
You may not agree, but 9/11 was prepared for, allowed and cleanly executed. The twin towers and the adjacent buildings were felled by demolition by the incumbent powers to incite Americans to war. Doing so did not require a large group of people, just a small backroom fraternity. Let’s call them the Fight Club.
This set up things for the attack of Afghanistan, followed by the really big lie: The incessent repetition, and little more, of weapons of mass destruction paranoia until the country was psychotic enough to attack Iraq. It wasn’t a war on terror. It was a war based on terror.
So, six years later, we have Lions for Lambs. With Meryl Streep doing her trademark crying jag, this time for all the American cannon fodder in the middle east. The rationale of continuing the offensive? World War against China whose allies are the Al Quaeda in Pakistan, the Iranians, North Korea. The new Axis. This is all sprinkled in amongst a call to raise an American civilian army little different than the pre-war force in Nazi Germany building the Autobahns and marching in formation with shovels.
Obama is currently changing the American legal system systematically to create a judicial system for future crime using the moniker “Rule of Law”.
America is preparing for war. They are preparing to put a general into the next Republican Presidential seat or an actor called Tom Cruise.
Hey, young America, grab your shovels, the Long Marchers are on their way.
