View Full Version : WAG THE DOG as AH

Would anybody consider this film as AH in regards to the US President manufacturing a war in Albania and heroic US-led intervention in order to cover up his political and personal misdemeanours ? IMHO there's a certain element of AH becoming reality here, based on this movie being utilised by certain anti-war protesters during Kosovo to criticise Clinton over the concudt of Op ALLIED FORCE.

I kinda thought it was ASB, since, despite Deniro's claim, one group is going to know the war's fake: The Albainians. And I doubt they'd be very happy about it.

Why would the Albanians be upset? They all get bribed to surrender, we make it look on TV like some fought bravely and got killed, they don't have any way to check except Rumint, so it's all good and everybody's happy.
Hell, if we want to win a war in Vietnam the rather corrupt government could probably be prevailed upon to lose, if we made it worth their while...Unfortunately, we're bankrupt and they'll probably want to be paid in hard currency.
