    Well that's just all sorts of irrelevant.

    Er....it says they "asked." Very similar to what Bush said after 911, asking people not to take it out on muslims living in America. Nothing wrong with that.

    Not sure I ssee how the movie could have that effect, unless the people don't understand the movie. But then we DO have a problem with wackos running around with guns killing people they don't know in public. It's in the news almost every day. And there have been some murders of dark skinned store workers who have been shot by wackos with guns because they thought they were muslim.

    Boy, that would go over like a lead balloon, eh?
    I suspect some wackos with guns here would start killing muslims because of it.

    At worst, Kyle is shown refering to insurgents and insurgent sympathizers as being "savages." There are absolutely no instances of the term being used as a racial slur against Muslims or Arabs in general, let alone those living in the United States.
    The AA group is saying some individuals are being targeted by Americans because of the movie. That's how I read that, anyway. (BTW, Kyle does refer to the Iraqis a couple of times with derogatory words...savages was one. I forget the other.)

    This isn't a Christian jihad? It seems that depends upon who is telling the story. You may not recall but Boykin and Bush made several statements (they were each quickly corrected) about 'crusades'.

    Who is smearing soldiers? I am not. My nephew has been over there. I'm thrilled he does not seem to have PTSD.

    I've been standing up for our soldiers since this hoax began--get our boys the **** out of there and back home, since Bush began all this.
    The movie isn't about terrorism. It's about the Iraq War. The people fighting our guys in the movie were Iraqis. Not terrorists.

    Oh, I'm not guessing. We already know it. They've been doing it since 911. A movie like that would cause a flare-up. Not that the wackos with guns who kill people in public places need any particular reason. But they would jump on this reason pretty quickly.

    Proof that you can link it to this movie?
