|gezsweet||I second Lord of War. fucking eye-opening how some governments deviously conduct business through the arms traders while giving the appearance they are maintaining international laws. I believe the film was based on a Russian arms dealer who was caught in Thailand a while back and currently fighting extradition to the U.S.|

Or squabbling with the t.v. over the validity of events, and googling the shit out of it so as to have a basis for argument

Thanks for correcting me.
You know, Hart's War, Charlie Wilson's War....same difference.
Edit: I wanted to add, Charlie Wilson's War is an outstanding movie that I think anybody interested in politics and/or government spending will find very interesting and at the same time eerily scary.

I remember liking Murphy's War, but for the life of me I can't really remember it in any detail. I'll have to download it and see it again.
Did I understand that correctly in that you've only seen one war movie? Guessing movies in general or that particular genre isn't your thing?

i have tried to find a DVD version if it, but cannae find one with the swearing left intact *for chrissakes!*
i suspect it has done more than even i might appreciate, to tailor my attitude toward international conflict;
Murphy's War (1971)
