Right now watching this movie on AMC. Have seen it many times before but still a good movie. Has Steve McQueen and Candace Bergen in it. Set amidst the Chinese civil war of the 1920s as a US gunboat tries to protect American lives and interests amidst the conflict while stranded at low tide.
McQueen's character falls for Bergen, who is married to this older educated gentleman. The ending packs a wallop and should be watched. McQueen is ordered to lead a landing party to rescue this American couple before the gunboat finally leaves. Well Bergen's husband refuses to leave and waves in front of McQueen's face this piece of paper. It declares this couple to no longer be American citizens, but international citizens and the genlteman goes on to say the local warlord has promised them protection. Well the warlord's soldiers attack the compound and this deluded man waves that paper and declares them protected. He is shot dead. McQueen and his shore party have to fight the soldiers and in the end he orders his men to take Bergen back to the gunboat while he holds the enemy off.
I can see people like those in CODEPink, after the American Caliphate comes to being, wonder in a confused voice wonder why are they being tied to poles in front of a firing squad. That they sympathized with the people and helped them so why this treatment. Just like that man waving that piece of paper in front of the warlord's soldiers availed him naught since he was a foreigner speaking an ungodly tongue, all that CODEPink and other like them did to help the Jihadis will not matter in the end becuase to the Jihadis all non-believers are the enemy and should die.
