Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer has hit back strongly against director Michael Moore's comments that snipers are "cowards." Meyer suggested that Moore's grandfather, who was killed by a sniper, is "rolling over in his grave" over his grandson's characterization of U.S. servicemen.
"I'm sure that his grandfather who died serving this country is rolling over in his grave knowing that his grandson is using him to justify him calling U.S. servicemen cowards. I'd be willing to bet that at some point during his grandfather's service, he was watched over by U.S. snipers, and probably had his life saved more than once by U.S. snipers during the war," Meyer wrote in his reply, Scout.com reported.
Moore, famous for a number of documentaries dealing with controversial issues, such as 2002's "Bowling for Columbine" based on the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, Tweeted on Sunday: "My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse." more >>

At 9:30 p.m. on Saturday night, a packed theater in Franklin, Tenn., was completely quiet. As the credits rolled, some folks were filing out, but many more were standing, still looking at the screen, honoring the man whose life they'd just seen portrayed on the silver screen.
Before the movie, I'd never seen the parking lot so crowded. I had to park more than a quarter-mile away, hidden in the corner of a restaurant parking lot (hoping I wouldn't be towed), and watched in amazement as people were streaming into the theater from parking spaces scattered far and wide. It almost goes without saying when a January movie release breaks $90 million in three days, but I felt as if I was witnessing an important cultural moment. This movie was striking a chord in America beyond any post 9/11 movie — beyond even the best of movies about the War on Terror, including Lone Survivor. I think I know why.
First — and most important — it's a phenomenal movie. America is awash in "message movies," left and (recently) on the right. While there are some people who'll attend movies just to make a statement, most of us want to see good movies, with the right statement merely an optional bonus. American Sniper is better than good. It's one of the best war movies I've ever seen, and is now in the pantheon of my all-time favorite movies of any type. Bradley Cooper is outstanding, and the movie pulls off something I've never truly seen in a war film: It creates fully realized characters both inside and outside the combat environment. By the end of the movie, we feel that we understand who Chris Kyle was, who is wife is, what they endured, and what motivated them. They're not one-dimensional heroes but fully realized people who did heroic things. more >>
