The Insurgents, a political thriller in the vein of Arlington Road and The Spy Who Came in From The Cold, questions about our views on terrorism by exploring what drives people to do appalling acts. The film depicts four Americans come together to build a truck bomb and plan to detonate it on a target in the U.S. Highlighting the days leading up to the event, The Insurgents is more about the motivations of the people involved than the act itself.Written by
Now that the depressed view has started to evaporate and we are winning in Iraq, this is just exposed for what it is. Bab leftest defeatism... I watched as much as I could stand and that was too much. Our founding fathers were not Iraqi insurgents or Bin Ladens's boy's. They were generally christens with some morals.
The depressed and boring dribble just dragged the mood along. The good value is never addressed, just a left-viewed propaganda, wrapped in neo-patriotism. A waste of time as reality is finally being let out, like the Yellowcake to Canada, and eventual Iran's involvement in the insurgency and development of a nuclear weapon.
Some day people will spend money on an honest view of reality like the real view of what people in the Mideast are used as. Pawns for corrupt dictators and religious tyrants.
