We just watched the movie The Hurt Locker. It was an interesting movie and worth watching. I suspect this is the first time in history that we have a movie about an active war. There’s just something odd about that.
This would be a good movie for anyone considering enlisting to watch as it demonstrates the utter absurdity of this war. As with other non-congressional declarations of war (Korea/Vietnam), it is a mystery as to what the actual goal is supposed to be. One wonders if the enlisted have any clue what they’re actually fighting for and the plot of this movie seems to demonstrate this.
I would recommend watching this film.
