Michael Moore might be a big government socialist, but he’s right about the propaganda film American Sniper.
Moore said Chris Kyle was a coward. Sniping is not cowardice: it’s a technique of war that must be put in proper context.
In a follow-up to his original remark, Moore got it right, at least in the first half of the tweet:

The argument should not be about the war technique, but about the war overall. Moore is correct — the invasion of Iraq was based on calculated lies designed to produce consensus for a war that was illegal and immoral.
Saddam Hussein did not possess weapons of mass destruction. He did not shelter and encourage al-Qaeda (that was done by the CIA). Iraq was in shambles after more than a decade of sanctions that left the country on the verge of becoming a failed state. Saddam Hussein was not a threat to the United States. He was not a threat to anybody expect the Iraqi people.
Chris Kyle and the movie his wife insists is an accurate portrayal of her late husband is war propaganda.
The folks who brought us the invasion of Iraq have an agenda. That agenda is endless war in the name of globalist empire. Hollywood works closely with the Pentagon and the CIA to produce slick war propaganda.
Moore says the “hate speech” — liberals invariably characterize criticism as hate speech — directed against him is a result of guilt and shame.
No, it is the result of ignorance and mass brainwashing.
Americans are not guilt ridden over the invasion of Iraq. They are ignorant of the real reason Iraq was invaded and destroyed.
