Even though the movie was subtitled some things just don’t translate

January 20th, 2007

I saw Letters from Iwo Jima, viagra usa viagra today.

It’s Clint Eastwood’s take on the battle of Iwo Jima from the Japanese viewpoint.

It was an excellent movie, but I have to say that it completely failed to help me understand why killing yourself in battle is somehow glorious.

As George C. Scott said in Patton:

Now I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.
