Is this how America was fooled into going to war?

From the beginning to the end of the film, it is the story of a young man who has failed in everything and starts to follow a self-proclaimed master who hits the wall everywhere after he feels that he cannot be worse.

After reading it, I was largely confused.

So I don't care if the movie is really understandable. In other words, I really saw what people wanted to show me. But after reading it, I feel that Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States is just as stupid as this buddy of this rocker, following and following the invisible and intangible masters to go to Iraq gloriously.

From this point of view, the two masters in this film were just beaten twice and walked in circles in the desert. Compared with many American youths who threw their lives on the other side of the earth, it is too light, and they are too embarrassed to say it.

But just like the super-power army gave a bunch of people the opportunity to do nothing, and gave a story to the young man with a pen, when the suffering of a few people can bring benefits to the majority:

you just die, you should of.

Of course, in the real world, this statement is modified as follows: Soldiers sacrificed for the motherland, for the people, for the freedom of the United States, for the security of the Holy America... defended... accomplished... and we will..., you Will...

This story may seem more titillating from this angle than it was before.

The Men Who Stare at Goats quotes

  • Bob Wilton: Bill? Lyn told me he didn't deserve this eagle feather. He wanted me to give it back to you.

    Bill Django: It's fake.

    Bob Wilton: What?

    Bill Django: This one's off a turkey.

  • Lyn Cassady: While recovering in the hospital, Bill wrote to the Vice Chief of Staff for the Army, explaining that he wanted to go on a fact-finding mission... to explore alternative combat tactics. The Pentagon agreed to pay his salary and expenses. What Bill hadn't told the Pentagon was that he was really looking for the answer to his vision. How could his men's gentleness, their general lack of interest in killing people, be turned into a strength? How could love and peace help win wars? Bill knew where to go to find out. Bill disappeared into the New Age Movement for six years.

    Lyn Cassady: [Continues talking while various images of Bill's experiences with New Age Movement are shown] Like all Shaman before him, he had traversed the wilderness. Now he was returning to his people, a changed man. He brought with him his confidential report, which he called: "The New Earth Army manual." The New Earth Army is a banner under which the forces of good can gather. The courage and nobility of the Warrior, blended with the spirituality of the Monk. The Jedi Warrior will follow in the footsteps of the great imagineers of the past: Jesus Christ, Lao Tse Tung, Walt Disney. The role of The New Earth Army is to resolve conflict world-wide. Jedis will parachute into war zones, utilizing sparkly eyes technique, carrying symbolic flowers and animals, playing indigenous music and words of peace...

    Bob Wilton: What's... What's the sparkly eyes technique?
