Hot off the Drudge Report:
I'd expect this kinds crap from Hollywood even before an Islamonazi country.
aolsvc.news.aol.com/movies/article.adp?id=20060202084309990001

ISTANBUL, Turkey (Feb. 2) - In the most expensive Turkish movie ever made, American soldiers in Iraq crash a wedding and pump a little boy full of lead in front of his mother.

They kill dozens of innocent people with random machine gun fire, shoot the groom in the head, and drag those left alive to Abu Ghraib prison - where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs, which he sells to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv.

"Valley of the Wolves Iraq" - set to open in Turkey on Friday - feeds off the increasingly negative feelings many Turks harbor toward their longtime NATO allies: Americans.

The movie, which reportedly cost some $10 million, is the latest in a new genre of popular culture that demonizes the United States. It comes on the heels of a novel called "Metal Storm" about a war between Turkey and the U.S., which has been a best seller for months.

One recent opinion poll revealed the depth of the hostility in Turkey toward Americans: 53 percent of Turks who responded to the 2005 Pew Global Attitudes survey associated Americans with the word "rude"; 70 percent with "violent"; 68 percent with "greedy"; and 57 percent with "immoral."

Advance tickets are already selling out across Turkey for the film, which has dialogue in Turkish, Arabic, Kurdish and English. In addition to Turkey, the film is set to be shown in more than a dozen other countries - including the United States, Britain, Germany, The Netherlands, Britain, Denmark, Russia, Egypt, Syria and Australia.

The movie's American stars are Billy Zane, who plays a self-professed "peacekeeper sent by God," and Gary Busey as the Jewish-American doctor.

U.S. soldiers have become hate figures in Muslim countries around the world after the unpopular war in Iraq. But here in Turkey, a personal grudge fuels the resentment.

"Valley of the Wolves Iraq" opens with a true story: On July 4, 2003, in Sulaymaniyah, northern Iraq, troops from the U.S. Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade raided and ransacked a Turkish special forces office, threw hoods over the heads of 11 Turkish special forces officers, and held them in custody for more than two days.

The Americans said they had been looking for Iraqi insurgents and unwittingly rounded up the Turks because they were not in uniform. Still, the incident damaged Turkish-U.S. relations and hurt Turkish national pride. Turks traditionally idolize their soldiers; most enthusiastically send their sons off for mandatory military service.

In the movie, one of the Turkish special forces officers commits suicide to save his honor. His farewell letter reaches Polat Alemdar, an elite Turkish intelligence officer who travels to northern Iraq with a small group of men to avenge the humiliation.

There they find a rogue group of U.S. soldiers led by officer Sam William Marshall - played by Zane. In the bloodfest that ensues, the small band of Turks bonds with the people of Iraq and eventually ends American atrocities there, killing Zane and his men in the final scene.

"The scenario is great," Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas told The Associated Press after the film was shown at a posh opening gala Tuesday night. "It was very successful. ... a soldier's honor must never be damaged."

But Topbas and other Turks at the premiere weren't too concerned about how the movie would be perceived in the United States.

"There isn't going to be a war over this," said Nefise Karatay, a Turkish model lounging on a sofa after the premiere. "Everyone knows that Americans have a good side. That's not what this is about."

Associated Press Writer Selcan Hacaoglu in Ankara contributed to this report.

Wow, now we have an inkling of what it feels like to be on the other side of things.

We have video games, books, movies, websites, etc., that demonize China, N. Korea, various Middle Eastern countries, former USSR, Germany, Japan, Vietnam, etc... Some of it is outlandish, some of it is based on real facts, a lot of it is rediculous.

I think the biggest problem is that Americans are brainwashed into believing we are the perfect, paradise country, that never does wrong.

Dude, we do the same fucking shit in our movies, video games, stories, etc. We utterly demonize the "other side", whoever that may be at the time. While our side has done some horrible things at times and gotten caught.

I'm just saying, both sides are the bad guys at times. People shouldn't freak the fuck out when some other country makes a movie demonizing America.

Hell, Dolph Lundgren as a US soldier just saved the world the other night on Showtime from a North Korean General who had discovered a way to live forever and conquer the entire world by eating human flesh. I haven't been attacked by any North Koreans since I've been born. Someone has to play the bad guy right?

Yes, it is all rediculous, including their plot line of jewish doctors harvesting organs from Abu Graib prisoners (which may have been better than what was ACTUALLY DONE TO THEM by some trailer park trash US military personell), but I can give you a million B movie plotlines from the US side....

Hmm, this could be bad. Turkey has F-16's, Hawk, Patriot, Hawkeyes, and Made in USA equipment. THey might end up like the Iranians running low on spare parts for years.

Not to worry though. If things go bad, we'll just carve off a chunk of Turkey and Iraq and turn it into Kurdistan. The Kurds will want to sell us oil in exchange for weapons that were supposed to go to Turkey.

Yeah, but the difference is that the US made films are like you said B movies. The turkish movie mentioned above is going to be used as an anti-american propaganda film allover a part of the world that already hates us. The majority of Americans don't see these movies & scream "Death to [Insert country here]" they just see it as hollywood being hollywood. Please tell me when in the world did liberal hollywood make a movie for the sole purpose of rallying the nation to hate another country? Most War movies actually make our soldiers look like the bad guys anyways. Sure they have some parts demonizing the enemy, but at the end it's usually the US military or the Government who are "bad."

You do know that Turkey is a NATO county, right? It is a military ally of the U.S., and the U.S. is obligated by treaty to help defend Turkey from any attack. How's that for lopsided?


The REALLY depressing part of this is that Turkey is by far the most "progressive" of the muslims states, and the one that is most likely to be civilized and more "western" in their outlook. Turkey is actually a pretty secular state, and banned muslim headscarves and veils is school long before countries like France did.

I see your point but only the press can make the movie a "rallying cry against america". Who knows why former A list actors from the US starred in it. Who knows what the director or writers meant when making the movie. Maybe it is just another bullshit movie to them, just like our B movies are, yet it is the press that is blowing it out of proportion. Movies are made to make money, and very rarely to draw attention to an issue. It always boils down to money. Maybe right now there is big money over there in selling a movie that depicts the US as imperialistic assholes. If so, that's more fuel for them to make the movie and to pay the press to rile people up about it.

So what, if there's money to be made from this type of movie, it will get made. It has nothing to do with politics from the writer/director/producer/actor point of view. It's about money. They all want to get paid, and if it's in a climate where people can't wait to see this type of movie, then there is going to be a shitload of tickets being sold, and they are going to make a ton of money.

How people don't understand something so simple amazes me.



wierd, I seem to remember Muslim countries saying the same thing about our negative portrayal of films made prior to 9/11... they thought that we felt that all Muslims were terrorists and dirty scumbags. I cannot believe you guys mock them for complaining about cartoons in Denmark and then throw a royal shitfest at the fact that someone might portray the US as the "bad guy" in some film(when their plot is a little more plausible than most Hollywood flicks atleast).

The fact is that anyone with power tends to become the bad guy in a movie, hollywood or otherwise. Films are all about sympathizing with "the little man", and the antagonist is always some rich guy/corporation/country or some powerful organization/company/religion.

It's so funny how the Turks seem to have forgotten that they murdered 1.5 million Armenians less than a century ago and they ought not to throw stones in their glass house. Of course, there was a world war going on, so nobody much noticed at the time, aside from the Armenians in question.



Different government, different people, no responsibility; unless you want to say,"well, the US killed >10 million indians lest than 1 and a 1/2 centuries ago...".
