There’s not much commentary necessary in describing the cut-and-run agenda in the upcoming movie release, “Lions for Lambs,” starring Tom Cruise (in a bid to rehab his damaged image by attacking America), Robert Redford (who also directs), and Meryl Streep. The trailer tells you what you need to know. But I’ll add this comment from reader Jason:
Looks like Tom’s playing a sleezy congressman, and Meryl and Robert are out to stop the war. “World War II only took 5 years, yet here we are, six years later…” Trying to keep from gagging.
Here’s the IMDB plot summary posted by the production company:
Simultaneously: 1) a Senator on Capital Hill debates a current crisis in Afghanistan, with the Reporter who made his career … 2) a Professor teaching Political Science tries his best to convince a good student not to give up his studies, using two former students who passionately enlisted in the Army as an example … 3) both of which (coincidentally) are currently under fire in Afghanistan — the very same crisis the Senator and Reporter are debating over.
A better title for the film, “Cut & Run: The Movie.” Coming soon to a theater near you.
Well, no wonder Michael Moore didn’t do a sequel to “FAKEnheit 9/11.” He didn’t have to.
