Winter Soldier

So the Winter Soldier movie is out this weekend. And you know what? I find it odd that I am not all over it. I am avidly anti-war and am part of IVAW. However, as of recently I have been finding myself at odds with IVAW and her doings.

 

With Winter Soldier, I cannot really put my thoughts into words really. I want the war to end. I am a non-interventionalist. I believe that we need to quit meddling in other countries foreign policies and doings. And thus this means that we need to get out of Iraq, ASAP.

 

However, the Winter Soldier (2008) seems to reek of Winter Soldier (1971). Will the truth, and nothing but the truth be told this year? Or will people like Army PVT Beauchamp or Jesse MacBeth be telling the stories?

 

Furthermore, what if they are telling the truth? I don’t think America cares enough to create any rifts in our current politics anyways…

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
