    Reader comments on The Battle of Algiers

    Dear Iraq Veteran,

    Obviously you also know nothing about the war in Algeria, nor the war in Iraq (or else perhaps you would have shared some of your intellect with us?). In fact, you were a small, clueless gear in the motor of a large, clumsy war effort in Iraq. You saw the conflict not for what it was, but through the limited, hillbilly redneck perspective of your Kentucky upbringing (or whatever goofball part of your country you come from).

    Please, if I'm wrong - I'd love to hear back from you. I'm dying for a fresh new "absolute truth" about the situation in Iraq.

    I will have to see "the Battle for Algiers" in its entirety after reading Tanzer's great review.

    Your review of 'Battle of Algiers'

    Nice one. A review of a very good film. Slight problem for you guys.

    (1) You know nothing about the war in Algeria.
    (2) You know even less about what's going on in Iraq.

    Still, why let the facts get in front of a damn good polemic ?
