Hollywood Hates the Troops

Hollywood Hates the Troops: The Slanders Of Tim Robbins and Brian DePalma
By The Scrapbook

"We've killed over 400,000 of their citizens." That's what actor Tim Robbins thinks U.S. troops have been doing in Iraq. He made the claim last week in an appearance on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher.

He's wrong, of course. American soldiers have not been slaughtering 300 Iraqis a day for the last four years. Even for one of Hollywood's most feculent personalities, this is an appalling slander of U.S. troops.

The Iraq Body Count is an antiwar website that tallies all civilian deaths in Iraq as reported in the news media. Theirs is a comprehensive count that seeks to hold the United States and Britain accountable for a wide range of civilian deaths. As explained at iraqbodycount.org: "The count includes civilian deaths caused by coalition military action and by military or paramilitary responses to the coalition presence (e.g. insurgent and terrorist attacks). It also includes excess civilian deaths caused by criminal action resulting from the breakdown in law and order which followed the coalition invasion."

The antiwar group's "maximum count"? At the moment, 77,555. That's one-fifth the number concocted by Robbins's overactive imagination.

Why anyone would pay attention to Tim Robbins is beyond me. Where was he when Saddam was in power? So Robbins thinks slandering our troops is going to do what, make our enemies like us? Jump start his moribund film carrer? Whhat an idiot this guy is. J'Mac.

At the end, Hollywood's betrayal of the troops will be seen as a heavy stain in our history book .

The liars , the betrayers , the haters of truth and country will die but the stain and the shame will never go away and some day we will make movies about Hoillywood's sabotaging and betraying the troops and the country.

It will not be a nice movie but a true one.
