America’s addiction to war and military aggression

“American Sniper” – Disgusting!

“Killing Ragheads for Jesus”

“American Sniper” is an absolutely disgusting movie. It glorifies America’s addiction to war and military aggression. U.S. foreign correspondent and journalist, Chris Hedges, entitled an article about the film “Killing Ragheads for Jesus” . Hedges says the Clint Eastwood directed “American Sniper” lionizes the most despicable aspects of U.S. society—the gun culture, the blind adoration of the military, the belief that we have an innate right as a “Christian” nation to exterminate the “lesser breeds” of the earth…” In short, it distorts history, popularizes lies, and whitewashes U.S. war crimes, crimes against humanity, and racism.

Hedges, said: “American Sniper,” like the big-budget feature films pumped out in Germany during the Nazi era to exalt deformed values of militarism, racial self-glorification and state violence, is a piece of propaganda, a tawdry commercial for the crimes of empire. That it made a record-breaking $105.3 million over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday long weekend is a symptom of the United States’ dark malaise.”

Hedges said, American Sniper Chris Kyle “and his fellow platoon members spray-paint the white skull of the Punisher from Marvel Comics on their vehicles, body armor, weapons and helmets. The motto they paint in a circle around the skull reads: “Despite what your momma told you … violence does solve problems.” Hedges said “The book is even more disturbing than the film. In the film Kyle is a reluctant warrior, one forced to do his duty. In the book he relishes killing and war. He is consumed by hatred of all Iraqis. He is intoxicated by violence…” “I only wish I had killed more,” Kyle writes, adding, “I loved what I did … It was fun. I had the time of my life.” (See excellent full article by Hedges here:

      Famed University Professor, Noam Chomsky, draws a disturbing parallel between “American Sniper” and the ongoing U.S. “global assassination program.” “‘I hated the damn savages I’d been fighting,’” Chomsky said, quoting Chris Kyle. “‘Savage, despicable, evil — that’s what we were fighting in Iraq. That’s why a lot of people, myself included, called the enemy savages. There was really no other way to describe what we encountered there.’” “Now, that [sniper] mentality helps explain why it’s so easy to ignore what is most clearly the most extreme terrorist campaign of modern history, if not ever — Obama’s global assassination campaign, the drone campaign, which officially is aimed at murdering people who are suspected of maybe someday planning to harm us.” Chomsky recommends reading some of the transcripts with drone operators, calling them “harrowing” in their dehumanizing treatment of people who are targeted.
