You're missing the point if you REALLY think his intention is 2 have everyone @ the end of this film to be all up in arms & ready 2 beat down the next cat they see on the street wearing a turban.

Or perhaps you've got your own seperate idea of what a majority of the peoples reaction is going to be to this film. I left the film w/ nothing but thoughts about honor, respect, & paying tribute to those involved in a stressful, tragic, trying situation. And I think many others will as well. If you'd clear your mind from all your preconceived notions & actually see the movie, you might also do the same. I repeat. This is not your typical Oliver Stone film.
