Hi. My name is John Cole and I don’t care about Harrison Ford’s politics:
At a safe distance from his homeland, veteran Hollywood actor Harrison Ford launched a broadside at US policy on Iraq, his country’s gun laws – and the film industry for producing “video games” for teenagers.
“I’m very disturbed about the direction American foreign policy is going,” said Ford, with US post-war casualties having exceeded those during the actual conflict.
“I think something needs to be done to help alleviate the conditions which have created a disenfranchised and angry faction in the Middle East.
“I don’t think military intervention is the correct solution. I regret what we as a country have done so far,” said Chicago-born Ford, 62.
The title for this was “Harrison Ford blasts US Iraq policy,” and I am hard pressed to see how he is blasting policy- this appeared to be pretty mild to me. He disagrees with the policy- he is entitled to his opinion, but who cares?
I also felt the ‘at a safe distance from his homeland’ bit was a little unfair- perhaps he has never been questioned abolut the policy at home? I dunno, but this seems to be pretty tame stuff and a mere policy disagreement, rather than low-rent Bush bashing.
