"Motss decides to invent a hero who was left behind enemy lines, and inspired by the idea that he was "discarded like an old shoe" has the Pentagon provide him with a soldier named Schumann (Harrelson) around whom he constructs a further narrative including T-shirts, additional patriotic songs, and faux-grassroots demonstrations of patriotism. At each stage of the plan, Motss continually dismisses setbacks as "nothing" and compares them to past movie-making catastrophes he averted.
When the team goes to retrieve Schumann, they discover he is in fact a criminally insane Army prison convict before their plane crashes en route to Andrews Air Force Base. The team survives and is rescued by a farmer, but Schumann attempts to rape the farmer's daughter and the farmer kills him. Motss then stages an elaborate military funeral, claiming that Schumann died from wounds sustained during his rescue."' wiki on WTD
There is just so much BS out there this year. The meme attack team at Ft. Brooklyn is working over-time to produce an unfavorable meme per day on Trump.
The latest stupid thing is the falsehood that claims Trump said the US military is WEAK psychologically. He did not say that. He said that SOME people exposed to combat stress are not strong enough to bear the pressure. I know that psychiatrists are busy selling the self serving idea that returned soldiers or evidently also those who have never been exposed to combat stress are wounded children. A lot of moms like that idea, but those who have fought know that what he said is profoundly true. Some people are unaffected by combat stress and others crumble at the thought. Others soldier on however much they quake inside. A woman up in Ottawa asked me once if I were one of the crazy brave or the phony tough. I should have asked if she had more options.
"Good ol' Shoe" rides again. pl
