Movie propaganda

During the US-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Matt Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.

Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.

Theatrical report

Green Zone could've been a great movie, if only it had been released in 2003, before the invasion of Iraq. How is it that everyone in the world knew that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq except for the people who were looking for them? How could Colin Powell use a truck that moved from one day to the next as proof of WMD? How do three nations (Australia, the UK and the USA) accept the same false information as true? Answer: politics. George Bush wanted to invade Iraq because of father issues. The USA wanted to invade because of oil supply issues. The UK wanted to invade Iraq to maintain the "special relationship" with the USA. Australia wanted to invade because John Howard had his head up George's arse. Colin presented pathetic evidence because he was ordered to do so.

Now, seven years later, it's old news and not very surprising news at that, which is a pity because, otherwise, this is a very good movie.

The thriller, war movie Green Zone is directed by Paul Greengrass and stars Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs, Brendan Gleeson.
