Bruce Willis, propaganda man

Bruce Willis is a man best ignored. It's why I had little to say about his sad, self-promotional stunt when he offered to pay $1 million to anyone who helped capture Al Qaeda types. Like the Pentagon hasn't been working that angle for years in Pakistan -- and with such spectacular results.

Now the fool is planning to make a pro-war movie based on the experiences "of the heavily decorated members of Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has spent the past year battling insurgents in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul" to show just how well the war is going for us -- and of course the Iraqis.

Atrios' comment on this latest bit of rightwing silliness:"(O)ne has to wonder why they're so excited to see fiction about the war that they're mostly not willing to go see in person (it's still going on guys, in case you didn't notice) and about which they stamp their feet and shriek every time the dreaded MSM shows any kind of footage of."

It may have something to do with the fact that the only way we can win this war is on the big screen.
