I dont really see how thats pro Iraq war, its a different set of circumstances, the Persians were going to invade their kingdom and take over/destroy it, as they had been doingwith the others. He didnt want to end up like the other kings who had been conquered=killed. George Bush Invaded Iraq, they werent invading the US
And, Im not saying Im right. I'm saying what I got from the movie. People interpret different shit in different ways and thats the feeling Im getting. And, things can be similar or have a hidden message within it without being totally the same. Theres situations that coincide with the Iraq aituation in the movie to me but not every single moment. Besides, some of the justification that George Bush uses is that whole "we have to get them before they get us" mentality. In the film the Persians hadnt invaded yet the Spartans going to war was more or less a premptive strike ala the Iraq war. And, Im not gonna argue semantics because for something to have an agenda doesnt mean that every fact has to be exactly the same, even if i didnt get the whole invasion part out of it, the situation where he goes and talks to the older men who persuade him not to go, and them going totally under manned and under equpied is very analogous with the current war imo. And, Im not even sayin that this was the intention of the writer or the director, its just the vibe I got from it.
