Oliver Stone: Bush Is Wrong Leader, In Spite of 9/11
It may not be right. Here's why.....
Oliver was quoted as saying how Bush "misused his power after 9/11," and being "angry about our involvement in Iraq and the violence of it all."
Oliver Stone is lecturing us on violence when 11 years ago he came out with NATURAL BORN KILLERS which glorified trash TV, serial killers, and our own callousness to violence. Yeah, let's take his commentary on the evils of violence, when he had legs and heads blown off every minute in PLATOON.
Oliver Stone, went to add that he was upset on the failure of ALEXANDER at the box office. He blamed the youth and their lack of caring for history. No, Ollie, their folks and even they know you're a frickin nutcase.
Stone's next film will be revisionism at best, and a distortion and blame USA flick at the worst.
Well, JFK, Stone skewered the US Government, courts, military, and local law enforcement as being accomplices in JFK's death. He started with weird autopsy facts and ballistics reports and branched out and embelished and lied from there.
Nixon, with Anthony Hopkins (great great actor) was somewhat better, but played heavily into the Nixon The Monster theories. And of course, downplayed accomplishments in getting the US out of Vietnam, opening doors with China, and negotiating with the USSR. Let's not forget his efforts to calm the rising crime rate. Sadly, Nixon, was paranoid and ambition did him in in a Macbeth/Shakesperean manner, said Stone. Actually, Nixon was human. Durh, Ollie.
Platoon, inept and cold officers, sadistic and ruthless sergeants, and the drugged up, the cowardly, and the murderous idiots comprised out army in Nam. Thanks Ollie! The names on the Wall appreciate it, NOT!
