He is pleased that The Pacific has fulfilled an obligation to our World War II vets. He doesn’t see the series as simply eye-opening history. He hopes it offers Americans a chance to ponder the sacrifices of our current soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. “From the outset, we wanted to make people wonder how our troops can re-enter society in the first place,” Hanks says. “How could they just pick up their lives and get on with the rest of us? Back in World War II, we viewed the Japanese as ‘yellow, slant-eyed dogs’ that believed in different gods. They were out to kill us because our way of living was different. We, in turn, wanted to annihilate them because they were different. Does that sound familiar, by any chance, to what’s going on today?”Hey Tom, did you not learn in school about December 7, 1941? You know, the "Day of Infamy," or did your just learn about that day from John Belushi in Animal House? Here's a little history lesson for you.
Maybe you should meet and talk to some vets who were there at Pearl Harbor. If he were still alive, I'd have liked to introduce you to a close family friend who was on the USS Nevada and was a recipient of the Navy Cross for his actions that day. In all the time I knew him, he never told me why or what he did to earn the Navy's highest honor below the Congressional Medal of Honor, only after he died in 1999 did I find out. Maybe if he were alive and saw what you'd said, he'd have made an exception and just told you about the horror he saw, because he'd have been so disgusted by the ignorant crap which emanated from your mouth.
Piss on you, Tom Hanks, and I'll be damned if I ever pay money in a theatre to see any of your stinking movies!
