Hollywood prepares wave after wave of propaganda films - With America at war, Hollywood follows

Remember...It doesn't have to be "Pro-War" to be considered propaganda. A movie can even be considered "Anti-War" but...

Legitimize the cause, government, military leaders, etc.
Dehumanize the enemy
Obsure the real reasons behind the conflict (oil)
Condition soldiers to obey even if they "disagree" with the war
Make war about "brotherhood" instead of simply murder and death
etc. etc. etc.

Remember...The military doesn't loan you the Blackhawks unless they feel they are getting something in return...
