WHOA! Didn't see this coming. ACV anti-semitic???

I did not see this one coming.

A blogger is claiming that Act of Valor is anti-semitic.  I can't even begin to comment cause I haven't see the flick but this is a part of her spill...

It’s official:  “Act of Valor” is anti-Semitic tripe wrapped in the American flag with a Navy SEAL cherry on top.  The movie, which debuts in theaters today, goes to great pains to tell you that the largest terrorist plot against America is perpetrated by  a Jew.  Did the Stormfront guys write this crap? In case there’s any doubt, “But you’re Jewish!” is shouted by a real-life Navy SEAL interrogator who heads SEAL Team 7 featured in the movie and goes by the nickname, “Senior.”  Apparently “Senior” forgot this, but the last time I checked, the guys behind 9/11 were not named Osama Bin Cohen and Khalid Sheikh Horowitz.  Ditto for the guys behind every major terrorist attack against Americans, whether on U.S. soil or abroad.  The Beirut bombing and murder of over 300 U.S. Marines and civilians?  Here’s a tip, Navy SEALS:  It wasn’t perpetrated by HezboLox&Bagels. And the guy just sentenced for trying to blow up a plane full of Americans with his underwear isn’t Umar Farouk AbdulEpstein.
I've been hard on this film but never would I believe that they would do this.

Time to watch the film I guess.  Afternoon showing here I come.

I am also aware that a good bit of controversy is always good to up movie sales.  I'm probably falling for a marketing scheme but oh well.

Time to leave Afghanistan.

A gunman killed two American advisers inside a heavily guarded government compound in Kabul Saturday, officials said, as protests against the burning of copies of the Muslim holy book roiled the country for a fifth day.
U.S. officials said the assailant remained at large as neither an apology from President Barack Obama nor gunfire from Afghan police could quench public outrage over what NATO insisted was an inadvertent desecration of the Quran.
No more apologies.

No more understanding.

No more nation building.

No more patience, spinning of the truth, staying the course, showing our 'spirit', etc...

This is bullshit.  Its time to go.
