Chris Kyle, Clint Eastwood, and a Film Trailer Heinrich Himmler Would Admire


Bradley Cooper is an extraordinarily capable actor. On the evidence of the teaser trailer for "American Sniper," Eastwood and Cooper — who stars in the title role, and served as a producer — have produced a masterpiece of War Party propaganda.

Cooper stars as the late Chris Kyle, generally (and, perhaps, unreliably) considered to be the most lethal sniper in US military history.

The teaser clip shows Kyle and his spotter doing overwatch as a Marine patrol occupies a devastated Iraqi neighborhood, kicking in doors in pursuit of local residents who might pose problems for the foreign military force that had invaded their country in an act of criminal aggression.

Kyle notices a woman and a young child emerging from a building. The woman hands the child an object that appears to be a grenade. As Kyle draws bead on the youngster, the viewer is shown a brief montage of scenes of the sniper at home with his lovely wife and beautiful children, briefly interrupted by a shot of Kyle surrounded by flag-draped coffins.
