Treason?

I just heard about the new hit movie in Turkey - Valley of the Wolves Iraq. I'm sure this will be a firestorm of controversy, if it isn't already and I'm just behind the times. U.S. news is starting to report that the film (the most expensive ever produced in Turkey) is receiving thunderous ovations and borders on anti-American propaganda. Or is it just another action movie featuring the "evil government" as the main villain, as so many do these days? Are American stars Billy Zane and Gary Busey traitors? I'll certainly be curious to hear Major John's opinion on this.

Well, any movie that feature a military doctor that happens to be Jewish and illegally harvesting organs might tend toward the propaganda/deranged side of the house [really, did they consult the Protocols of the Elders of Zion for the screen play?]. Also, the Turks ain';t exactly standing on the moral high ground considering their treatment of the Kurds, and meddling in Northern Iraq (this movie seems to be a crude reply to the actual event of our forces capturing a Turkish SF unit in Northern Iraq - apparently setting up to assassinate a Kurdish political figure).

I couldn't care less what the actors appear in - they just shouldn't complain later that people are "questioning their patriotism" or trying to "stiffle their dissent" etc, etc, ad nauseum, when they criticise them or stop watching them in movies...

This is a couple of months old. I'm pretty sure Major John did comment on it. I just don't know if it was on the new site or the old one. I think the old one.
