Biggest Turkish Blockbuster Ever

And it doesn't treat the US too kindly.

IN THE most expensive Turkish film ever made, American soldiers in Iraq gatecrash a wedding and shoot a little boy in front of his mother.

They kill dozens of innocent people with random machine gun fire, shoot the groom in the head and drag those left alive to Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs, which he sells to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv.

Our public diplomacy sure is working! I do think this is an interesting case taken alongside the whole cartoon flap. When a cartoon caricatures Mohammed isn't okay and this is? Consular Offices everywhere are vandalized and foreign citizens are threatened as a result of the cartoon, but they'll be no backlash about this. Only applause, and ticket sales are already selling out. It's not even really a double standard. It's something way more sinister than that.
