OscarTamerz: A much better movie would have been how the Iranian camel jockeys were scared so shiatless by Reagan they gave all the rest of the hostages back witout him having to do a thing. Of course the Hollywood cocksuckers would never do a movie about a real American hero, would they.
indarwinsshadow: Afflecks a kunt. I won't read any article that promotes some piece of revisionist sh*t that puts Canada's role in saving your diplomats on the front burner. F*ck that. It's insulting as hell and hopefully, Canadians will boycott Afflecks asswipe movie.

Rodeodoc: intelligent comment below: Not sure if ignorant troll or really this ignorantActually, it's a fact. In typical asshat Hollywood fashion, Affleck gives all the credit to the CIA. In fact, it was the Canadian Embassy and Ambassador Ken Taylor who masterminded the affair. The CIA was mostly hiding behind their mommy's aprons, waiting to take credit if the Canadians pulled it off.But then Americans are always first to take the credit, last to take the blame. Affleck tried to kiss Taylor's ass by adding a paragraph at the end of the movie after the credits that gives the Canucks a brief shout out. Fark you, Affleck, you lying douchebag. People will be in their cars and heading for home before that hits the screen.
Arnprior Joe: Hey, douchebag. Affleck didn't write the script.
OscarTamerz: You're confusing the Iran embassy hostages with the Iran Contra hostages. All the Iran embassy hostages were returned before Reagan became president and flown out of Iran on the day of the inauguration because he threatened to treat it like what it was, an act of war, if they were not returned. Get a brain liebutturds.
