    I guess this shows some of the cultural differences between Americans and Europeans.
    Some films and their messages are understandable to me – like the one about Chris Kyle “American Sniper”.
    But the video above… I don’t think you really think like that, do you?

    • This video is a parody of an actual speech given by Gen. George Patton as portrayed by George C. Scott in the movie ‘Patton.’ Quite an iconic movie for WWII military buffs. This is intended to be a humorous adaptation of a very inspiring speech given to soldiers about to ‘hit the beach’ in North Africa. It is specifically ‘over the top’ just to make a point.

    This video was made in 2007. In 2004 the Marine Times had an article on a survey of US military personnel in Iraq, and their position on withdrawal. The survey showed 70% of US personnel in Iraq believed we should be out within a year.

    Guess what happened…

    Every bit of our problems in that area derive from Dick Cheney’s plan to invade Iraq to get control of the oil.

    Before Cheney Iraq had a secular government and no Al Qaeda or affiliates. After Cheney’s war Iraq became Shia Muslim and the dissolution of the Iraqi army put many thousands of Iraqis out of work and armed with military grade weapons. Which is where Daesh came from.

    For all that, we did not get control of the oil. Which leaves open the question, are the oil companies aiding Daesh to keep Iraq from reopening it’s oil production to full strength?

    Iran talks bad about the US, but the US gave them good reason. In the real world Iran is no threat to the US, nor Israel. Believe what you want but even Israeli intel and the Israeli army say no threat. Their nuke program is truly down, if it ever really existed. The CIA reported Iran abandoned any thought of nuclear weapons in 2001, and Israeli intel conquers. If anyone in the world has reason to be cautious about Iran it’s Israel, so they aren’t going to play games with this.

    The Israeli army plan for the future gives a 10 to 20 year safe window before Iran can even have a nuke if they try.

    Whereas Saudi Arabia is the real source of terror against the US and the West in general, yet they are called our ally. Why? Look at the oil people for the answer to that.
