Former Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell in an interview on Tuesday with Megyn Kelly lambasted critics of the newly released movie “Lone Survivor”, a movie which is apparently based on his own real-life incidents of survival.
Though they are certainly in the minority, some have attacked the film as pro-war “propaganda.”
Luttrell was conspicuously confused as to how anyone could see anything “glorious” in war.
He further stated “There’s nothing glorious about war,” he said. “There’s nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. There’s nothing glorious about having to leave your home for 6 to 8 months while your family’s back here and you’re away.”
He then explained why the brave men and women of the military do what they do and risk their lives for their country.
“Bottom line is that there’s bad people everywhere. And every now and again we are going to have to stop to them to make sure that we preserve our way of life,” Luttrell added. “It’s people like my teammates and I that have to do that, and the men and women in the military. But there’s nothing glorious about it, there’s nothing pro-war nobody wants war, it’s the most horrible thing in the world.”
Luttrell went to testify that the movie is really about his SEAL team, a brotherhood of men who are all willing to die for one another.
He also argued it shows that there are good people everywhere, referring to the Afghan village that protected him during the hellish ordeal.
