There’s A Lot More to American Sniper Than Glorification Of War

There’s been some chatter in the media lately about “American Sniper”, the new movie directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper. Complaints about the glorification of war and celebrating a killer really miss the point. To me the movie was much more of an examination of the effects of PTSD and how military service can take a toll on families and destroy lives. There are mixed reports about the character of the real Chris Kyle so I have no idea if the movie is accurate at all but I thought Bradley Cooper did a great job portraying a man torn between his family at home and his brothers-in-arms and struggling with the things he saw and did.

Below is Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio discussing the movie:
