Michael Moore tweet on Clint Eastwoods pro-Neo-Con American Sniper movie

Anti-gun campaigner Michael Moore sparked controversy when he tweeted, “We were taught snipers were cowards,” just in time for the US cinema release of Clint Eastwood’s new film, American Sniper.
“…Costumes, hair, makeup superb! Oh… and too bad Clint gets Vietnam and Iraq confused in his storytelling.
“And that he has his characters calling Iraqis ‘savages’ throughout the film
“I think most Americans don’t think snipers are heroes. Hopefully not on this weekend when we remember that man [Dr Martin Luther King Jr] in Memphis, Tennessee, who was killed by a sniper’s bullet.”
Sorry to have to state the obvious again: Invading a country that hasn’t attacked you is illegal & immoral. History will judge us harshly.
