There has been a lot of controversy about the movie and its content, not to mention anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments by thoughtless leftists and conservatives. The main issue is that we not make this about one particular party line, because in doing so, it distracts us from what is hiding in plain sight: America's love of war.
This movie is not a broader commentary on the geopolitical context, nor does it justify and excuse the short-sighted decisions or patently incorrect world views of the people who propagated this war on the American and Iraqi people. It is simply the story of one warrior and his family, and the struggle to do the right thing.
I see soldier worship as harmful because it so easily morphs into support for wars, no matter how unjust, by letting our affection for our fellow citizens in uniform and our desire to see them come home alive obscure the truth behind what they're supposedly fighting and dying for, which is rarely as black and white as we are told or wish it to be.
