stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle and a hundred-pound ruck on his back through Middle East deserts
with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers, always potentially just over the next horizon. Swoff and his fellow
Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don't
understand against an enemy they can't see for a cause they don't fully fathom... Foxx portrays Sergeant Sykes, a Marine lifer
who heads up Swofford's scout/sniper platoon, while Sarsgaard is Swoff's friend and mentor, Troy, a die-hard member of

In this film, muckraker Michael Moore turns his eye on George W. Bush and his War on Terrorism agenda. He illustrates his
argument about how this failed businessman with deep connections to the royal house of Saud of Saudia Arabia and the Bin
Ladins got elected on fraudulent circumstances and proceeded to blunder through his duties while ignoring warnings of the
looming betrayal by his foreign partners. When that treachery hits with the 9/11 attacks, Moore explains how Bush failed to take
immediate action to defend his nation, only to later cynically manipulate it to serve his wealthy backers' corrupt ambitions.
Through facts, footage and interviews, Moore illustrates his contention of how Bush and his cronies have gotten America into
worse trouble than ever before and why Americans should not stand for it.
