American Sniper & the Whitewashing of the Iraq War

American Sniper & the Whitewashing of the Iraq War

Jeff Durkin with We Are Change CT breaks down the latest war blockbuster film “American Sniper” based on the story of Chris Kyle the most lethal sniper in U.S. History.

We break down the film and how it whitewashes history in Iraq, elements of Chris Kyle’s story, as well as the implications that go beyond Chris Kyle and how it relates to War and Foreign Policy.

As we establish citizens groups throughout the country and world, we wish to inspire a community of truth-seekers and peacemakers through creative campaigns with a commitment of non-violence. We Are Change CT are not so much a group but an idea, an idea that “We the People” are the vehicles of these “ideas” and of the freedoms, liberties, and truths we are seeking all across the globe. An idea that captures the spirits of our forefathers who just desired freedom; that together, as residents of this planet, we grow like a snowball of truth and justice rolling down a mountain of tyranny growing bigger and stronger, recognizing the beauty in our differences and the diverseness of each other, but at the same time strengthening our cause because we learn and grow from each others individuality. Then as we learn to come together, that as one, you, me, him, her, us…will realize that WE ARE CHANGE.
