I've been looking forward to this "Green Zone" for a long time, looking forward to seeing Matt Damon's hearty action scenes again, but I was a little disappointed after watching the movie. Is this an action movie, a war movie, or a political movie? The director seems to be a bit ambiguous on this issue. Speaking of action movies, the street fighting at the beginning of the movie was very well shot, making people feel emotional and admiring the strength of the US military; speaking of war movies, of course, this is a movie that reflects the real Iraq War; speaking of political movies , It's really a bit like, Matt Damon's good American soldier is not going to be a soldier, but he wants to investigate the political shady together with people from the CIA.

I have always believed that the so-called "weapons of mass destruction" that the US government swore does not exist at all, but whether the decision-making level deliberately fabricated this reason, or whether the decision-making level is just deceived, then we do not know . Even if the decision-making level makes serious mistakes, they will not admit it. After all, this is politics, and interests always outweigh justice. What's more, according to my philosophy, if I were Matt Damon, I would not expose this scandal, as he said at the end, "How can we expect the public to support us again in the future?". Once the scandal is exposed, the impact on the government and the military will be huge, and it will cause a strong backlash from the people. The government will step down and party rotation will be minor. The public demonstrations and domestic divisions will have serious consequences. Iraq is very Possibly second in Vietnam. Therefore, in many cases, well-intentioned concealment and deception are necessary and the best choice.

But now that I think about it, I really admire Americans. The Americans are the only country in the world that can launch two regional wars at the same time. The U.S. military has more than 1,000 military bases around the world, of which 374 are deployed outside the mainland. any corner of the world. The Vietnam War, the Gulf War, the Kosovo War, the Afghan War, and the Iraq War. In the past 40 years, the United States has been waging wars, adjusting strategies, and training soldiers. American soldiers have richness that no other country has. practical experience and strategic thinking. No matter what the United States relies on to make its fortune, everything is an opportunity and everything is a challenge. In many places, we still need to learn from the experience of the United States.
