"Saving Private Lynch"

There was a lot on the telly about the rescue of Private Lynch. I think it's wonderful news that she was rescued! But the news readers prattled on about making a movie called Saving Private Lynch, or something like that, effectively trivializing the rescue.

If a movie is made about this war it should be done along the lines of The Longest Day or Tora Tora Tora. It should show everything on both sides, fairly and without propagander or comment. It should show the good and the bad, the build up and the action. It should show the Iraqis, US, UK, Australian, and Kurdish forces in action.

But above all it should show the bravery of the soldiers on all sides, including the capture and rescue of Private Lynch.
