I grew up in Iraq with my family and I loved the conflict there. This film tells the story of two pilots and their captors in Kuwait. The second pilot describes how he and his unit bombed the homes of the families of the former Saddam regime. The captors, who were high ranking military officials, spoke of 'travelling to Mecca' and returning with money in boxes to their wives. The Iraqi government offered to pay the pilots US$10,000.00 each to see the inside of a Kuwaiti prison. The pilots refused the offer. The film is like a two hour play. The fight scenes are brutal and the Iraqi war machine is shown on a daily basis. The pilots, mostly from the US and Canada, were captured as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in August 2003. They were not allowed to leave the airbase until the following day. The pilots were to be flown to Kuwait to be interrogated. They refused to be moved out of Kuwait. The film shows the war machine, such as tanks and helicopters. It also shows the Arab and Islamic cultures. The Muslim culture is shown as harsh and menial. The pilots were members of the military academy at MacDill Air Force Base. They were trained to fly F-16s. Their bombs were loaded with depleted uranium, a deadly metal that has been linked to cancer. One of the pilots, Lt. Col. James Belman, had the misfortune of dying from a skin disease caused by the DU. These bombs, dropped by a squadron of F-16s, would have a death rate of 4,000 people per year. This film also shows the Iraqi war machine that has killed over 300,000 people since the 1991 Gulf War. The only good thing I can say about this film is that it was made in English. Most of the Arabic spoken in the country is in Arabic. However, that doesn't make it easy to understand.

This movie was a real treat for me. I am not a great fan of the current regime and I would be in the camp of those who oppose their occupation but I also understand that they have the right to defend themselves. I don't know what it is about the new government and the police that the public have a problem with but I thought it was interesting that all of them spoke very openly about their personal experiences and how it affected their lives. The interviews were thorough and often very moving. Even with the rambling and the extended pauses, it was easy to stay interested and on the edge of your seat. I particularly enjoyed seeing the high profile citizens who don't always talk to the press in the states but are around when it comes to their day to day experiences in the occupied territories. Their stories of misery and loss are very poignant and in many ways are reminiscent of the plight of the Palestinians who have been in the occupied territories for over 40 years. It is unfortunate that the "hints" and "implications" are not consistently more illuminating than the actual content. It is very strange how they go from bombast to a serious discussion of the problems of the occupation and the very complex relationship between the occupier and the occupier's people and the way these problems are handled by the police and the occupation. At times it felt like they were interviewing people in the Israeli police and Mossad but it was never clear which of the interviewees were, in fact, serving the police or the occupation. This is a serious matter and it is important to highlight the issues. It would be hard to put it into a few words but it is a very powerful documentary. I found it difficult to distinguish between the interviews with the "real" Palestinians and the interviews with the "Israeli" people and it was difficult to see who was a Palestinian and who was an Israeli. Overall, this movie is important and very well done. Hopefully this is a starting point for others to investigate this subject in depth and it may encourage people to get involved in the struggles and to bring it to a wider audience.
