We Keep Saying that the World is Mad at Us

We keep saying that the world is mad at us, and now the world is starting to show it in really obvious, ten million dollar ways.

In Turkish movie, Americans kill innocents

ISTANBUL, Turkey -- In the most expensive Turkish movie ever made, American soldiers in Iraq crash a wedding and pump a little boy full of lead in front of his mother.

They kill dozens of innocent people with random machine gun fire, shoot the groom in the head, and drag those left alive to Abu Ghraib prison - where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs, which he sells to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv.
Billy Zane plays the American military commander "gone bad", and Gary Busey plays the specifically mentioned "Jewish" doctor. (what persecution complex? Me?)

"The scenario is great," Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas told The Associated Press after the film was shown at a posh opening gala Tuesday night. "It was very successful. ... a soldier's honor must never be damaged."

But Topbas and other Turks at the premiere weren't too concerned about how the movie would be perceived in the United States.

"There isn't going to be a war over this," said Nefise Karatay, a Turkish model lounging on a sofa after the premiere. "Everyone knows that Americans have a good side. That's not what this is about."
Sure. Everyone knows. That makes me feel much better.
