Tom Cruise delivers a riveting and unforgettable portrayal of Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic in Oliver Stone's Academy Award®-winning masterpiece. Based on a true story, the acclaimed film follows the young Kovic from a zealous teen who eagerly volunteers for the Vietnam War, to an embittered veteran paralyzed from the mid-chest down. Deeply in love with his country, Kovic returned to an environment vastly different from the one he left, and struggled before emerging as a brave new voice for the disenchanted.

Directed by: Oliver Stone

  • Look at a man like Kovic, who bore witness to the truth -- a man who had actually been in the midst of the mess created by vainglorious politicians and misguided military theorists. Look also at the violent reaction of Nixon sycophants. And look at Nixon’s platitudes. Now we have something infinitely worse than Nixon, although he is on his way out......but a barbarian nonetheless. We have failed to learn the lessons of history.

  • Following the train wreck at Case Western Reserve last night, I am reminded of how dumbed down and/or cognitive dissonant a great % of citizens have become. Clearly, both of the preselected politicians for POTUS, Trump in 2016, and Biden in 2020, are not fit for the job other than being Zionist tools. I believe we would not be in this position if we had brought back the mandatory draft following the obvious false flag attack in late summer of 2001. The never-ending wars that the US started would have been ended by now. That is precisely why the string-pullers did NOT reinstate the draft! This clip from "Born on the Fourth of July" is a reminder that nothing will change, in fact, will get worse if Biden "wins" the election.

  • When a Democrat sent the first 15k troops, crickets. When a Democrat fakes a naval attack to massively increase our involvement, yawns erupt. When a Democrat orders the dropping of more ordinance than was used in WWII on a country that was barely industrialized, not a peep. When a Democrat increased the number of in-country troops to over a quarter million, unleashed indiscriminate napalm bombings, and the used cancer-causing defoliants, only the beginnings of protest. When a Republican promises to end the war (eventually doing just that), massive protests. The fingerprints of manipulation were all over the anti-war movement, just like they have been on its successor organizations.

    • Yep. Funny how Kovic was so cozy with the Democratic Party when they were the ones who entered and expanded the war. Nixon wasn't even president when he served.

  • January 27, 1973 - The U.S., South Vietnam, North Vietnam, and Viet Cong signed a peace treaty officially ending the war and beginning the withdrawal of all American forces. Yet, there was a condition that, if the North restarted hostilities, the U.S. would resupply the South on a piece-by-piece basis. We knew that the North would do just that, and they did within months. However, due to these protests back home and the strong opposition to the war, the U.S. turned its back on the South Vietnamese people. We lied to them and allowed the North to completely conquer the South. In doing so, the northern communists murdered and raped millions and sent still more to communist "reeducation camps." That was what we were fighting against. And, we lost. What I find strange today is how so many people are still against the war, even seeming to side with our enemy. I have no problem disagreeing with a war or conflict. Of course, we should always be cautious when considering taking military action. Some wars are justified while others are not. Some actions in warfare are justified while others are not. However, when there's such a blatant opposition to a conflict where the intent was to protect the life and freedom of a weaker people, I wonder what the motive is for said opposition. We lost plenty more soldiers in WWII, yet that wasn't opposed to such a degree. If you mean to tell me the motive for opposing Vietnam was due to the massive loss of life, that's nonsense. For me, I oppose Vietnam, not for the military action, but for the political restrictions and limitations on the use of force that essentially made victory impossible.

  • this scene is so fantastic on so many levels. The people you see there near the end spitting on him, attacking him, and screaming/shouting at him. Are the same people who cheered him and people like him on, to go fight in vietnam. And once he no longer sides with their political views and agendas, hes dogshit in their eyes and worth nothing. Only time hes worth anything to them is when they need or want something from him. When he no longer has anything to provide for them, hes trash in their eyes. Just shows you how the ones in power, who try to keep their power. Uses and builds characters to support them, because the public respects them. They are happy with sending them off to war, just so they can bask in the glory of the ones lucky enough to come back. And stick a medal to their shirt. Vietnam war was just pure chaos, was the first televised war aswell. They went there to stop communism, as alot of asian countries were falling to communism at the time. And make no mistake, it was an just cause. But in the end and with hindsight, nothing good really came of it. But always support your vets America, they are just like you. They just got the short end of the stick, if you want to blame anyone blame the ones who sent em.
