why does nobody see??

Just saw "Shooter" and it rocks.

Gosh I was surprised to find that the baddies were rich Americans after oil. These people will do anything (anything!) to build a nice pipeline. Mass slaughters don't raise an eyebrow.

One thing puzzles me though. Why does this director think he's a lonely voice howling in the wind? Why does he think he's the only person who knows this awful truth? And why does he think he's the only one with the courage to face up to these awful facts or the goodness to decry them? There are few things that are as much a part of the decent left-liberal consciousness than the belief that the war was "all about oil", but there are so many who think in the same way. Don't they watch each others movies?
