Red Dawn 2010

The Film Red Dawn is a classic 80′s movie and one of the last great patriotic films. In that movie, set back in 1984, the Soviets, Cuban and Nicaraguan Army invade the United States. A rag tag band of teen age/early 20′s guerrilla fighters form a group called Wolverines, named after their football team, and they lead the resistance. The movie ends with the Wolverines decimated but shows that America eventually goes on to win WWIII.

Well there is now a remakeset in today’s time. In this version China and Russia invade the US on the pretext that the America’s fiscal and economic irresponsibility is a threat to world stability. This time it take places in the Pacific Northwest and not Colorado like in the original.

Here is a synopsis:

Set against the backdrop of contemporary politics, the film begins with an American withdrawal from Iraq. The President decides to redeploy troops to Taiwan, where escalating Chinese militarism is threatening America’s ally. At the same time, he also welcomes the former Soviet republic of Georgia into NATO, unleashing Russian worries that America is spreading its sphere of influence deep into Eastern Europe. Having destabilized relations with two of the world’s largest powers, the President then claims that the U.S. is only partly to blame for a global economic meltdown, further escalating tensions with China and ultimately leading to the invasion of the Pacific Northwest.

While the scenario is far-fetched, China’s occupation of America carries several elements that seem oddly plausible. Soon after their arrival, the Chinese invaders put up dozens of inspirational posters. One shows a red mallet smashing the U.S. Capitol under the title “Defeating Your Enemy.” Another shows a selection of doughnuts, proclaiming “Obscene Choice. A Weapon of Mass Distraction.” Above all, the theme of the invasion seems to be that America’s economic woes have led to its overthrow and that the Chinese invaders will help the country to recover its economic footing. One poster, for example, depicts a red-clad worker beating a dollar sign under the slogan “Repairing Your Economy.”

These are the propaganda posters from the movie:

This is the flag of the Chinese Occupied United States.

This is a photo shot of the PLA Occupation forces.

Although the film is slated for release in November it’s very possible that it will not see the light of day. Progressive organizations are already calling this racist and xenophobic. China is already complaining about this movie and as we know in this day and age, Hollywood is concerned about how foreigners view it. However it gets even more interesting. There is an Australian movie that is also similar to Red Dawn, but set in today’s Australia. Tomorrow, When the War Began is about a rag tag group of teenagers fight a Chinese invasion of Australia. This is actual based on a book trilogy.

Is this scenario plausible at all? One never knows the future and if it were to happen, the Progressives would welcome in the Chinese and Russians as liberators. That would not be fictional or far fetched. In fact, a certain Jazz Artist and his blog would probably welcome the invaders as liberators from the evil “racists”!

Here is an old trailer for the New Red Dawn:

    Wow -- it’s so rare to see Hollywood come out with a truly patriotic movie (although the people of America really do like movies like this) -- I hope the movie pulls through the crisis.

    I’d love to see it.

    The Tomorrow When The War Began series were popular books for teenagers in Australia, about like the “Twilight” series is now. Apparently the invading nation was never explicitly named, but there are a lot of hints dropped in the books that it was Indonesia.

    I really don’t understand it. The people who live there certainly don’t feel that way. Yet, they (the progs) are either stealing elections or there’s enough of them to actually get these asshats in office who make these jerkass laws on them.

    When in public, the very rare Swedes who love Israel dearly have to refrain from smiling and punching the air in public after the news shows that Israel has hit a rocket launching cell or destroyed a weapons smuggling tunnel in Gaza.

    “No, I didn’t smile. Did you think I smiled? No smile.”

    Up until them mid 1960′s, San Fran actually was a somewhat conservative city. The last Republican mayor they had, George Christopher (1957 -64), built a lot of the great places in San Francisco that made it such an attraction for the moonbats who later migrated there.

    from wikipedia

    Christopher was instrumental in bringing the New York Giants baseball team to San Francisco in 1958 (where they became the San Francisco Giants) and in securing the funding to build Candlestick Park, which opened in 1960, for the team. His administration has been credited with the building of the Brooks Hall, twelve new schools, seventeen firehouses, six public swimming pools, the five story Fifth and Mission and the underground Civic Center garages.

    Christopher was known for his strong stand on civil rights; his childhood experience of anti-Greek sentiment informed his stand. He gained worldwide headlines offering his home to Willie Mays after it was reported that a Forest Hill realtor had refused to sell to Mays. Christopher also lobbied and succeeded in opening mental health and alcohol treatment centers under city funding. When Christopher was Mayor, the streets of San Francisco were not filled with homeless and mentally ill people. Under his leadership along with such notable Supervisors as Harold Dobbs, the city government was operated efficiently and was accountable to the public. The Municipal Railway which is the city’s transit system, was very reliable.

    He presided over the redevelopment of major portions of city and private lands, labeled Slums, some not without controversy; the Embarcadero Center and Golden Gateway, displacing the ancient Produce Market from the filled land southeast of Telegraph Hill to the Alemany location where it remains, Japantown and the Fillmore urban renewal that displaced the African-American and the remnants of the Jewish Community for concrete highrises, the new Hall of Justice and the opening of the Embarcadero Freeway, which blocked the Embarcadero and Ferry Building from the city, spawning the first Freeway Revolt. Another controversial issue was the loss of the historic Fox Theatre movie palace on Market Street at Polk Street. In early 1963, the owners of the Fox closed the theatre, and offered it for sale to the city of San Francisco for $1,050,000. Mayor Christopher turned this down, and demolition of the Fox proceeded; by August, the theatre was gone. Theatre historians worldwide agree that the San Francisco Fox was one of the most magnificent movie palaces ever constructed. Movie palace fans still mourn the theatre’s loss over 45 years later, longer than the building actually existed.

    Compare him to Mayor Gavan Newsome.

    Same guy. He was the planner of the Pearl Harbor attack, and he was not thrilled with the idea of going to war with the US. He had traveled extensively in America in the late 20′s and early 30′s and knew what we were capable of. Hence the “rifle behind every blade of grass quote”.

    That’s a possibility, but there are others:

    1) The person is drunk, on drugs, or simply insane, and lacks the cognition to navigate to a toilet.

    2) The person hails from somewhere where modern sanitation is unknown or nonexistent. They don’t know a toilet from a hole in the ground (literally).

    #2 (no pun intended) is likelier than you might think. When I was in Guatemala briefly, some of the people from various Mayan tribes in the hill country came into town to sell handicrafts and farm goods at outdoor markets. The sewage treatment infrastructure even in urban areas of Guatemala was severely lacking at that time, and probably still is. In tribal areas, there was none whatsoever. So when they came into town, they sometimes used the sidewalks in an inappropriate manner, more from simple ignorance than anything else.

    Of course, you know the reason Basic was done in increments of 10…lack of editing ability so if you needed to add a statement, you could put in an 11, or 14 or whatever came between 10 and 20…after that, you had to “goto 100″ and keep a pointer to goto 19 to get you back. Ugly, ugly code that was.

    yea it wasn’t until Visual Basic you could employ wrappers, DLL routines and OCX calls…Still the framework was bulky and slow with all the chunk calls into DLL’s.. OO is the most advanced programming language today…The learning curve from C to C++ is steep…But with self testing in objects wild pointers to registers and scratch memory is all but eliminated and memory leaks in the heap are resolved with automatic garbage collection Routines…
    In fact no program over 100000 lines of code should ever be written in anything but C++
    It’s an powerful and eloquent language

    Yeah, He really did not want to go to war with the USA, he knew Japan could not win in the long run. He was considered so vital to the Japanese war effort that we sent a flight of P-38′s to shoot down the aircraft he was flying on, in April of 1943. We had cracked their codes and knew about the flight.

    Because of MGM’s financial straits, Red Dawn (2010) are not the only movies getting delayed. The Hobbit and James Bond 23 are two other big pictures that may never be made or released.

    MGM should do a remake of Ben Hur, since the 1925 original and the 1959 remake saved MGM from bankruptcy both times when they were made and released.

    Would a 21st century remake have Judah and Messala be boyhood lovers, an adult Judah spurns an adult Messala, making for a “better” reason why a Roman hates a Jew?

    wiki is saying the movie is in limbo due to MGM being broke. The film was supposed to have had a June 2010 release, but it got pushed back to November 2010 because of money problems.
    Considering the overinflated budgets for a lot of other hollywood crap movies, $75M for this remake seems to be chump change.

    The Tomorrow When The War Began series were popular books for teenagers in Australia, about like the “Twilight” series is now. Apparently the invading nation was never explicitly named, but there are a lot of hints dropped in the books that it was Indonesia.

    During exercises in Oz the enemy was always the Masourians (if they were regulars and Kamarians (if they were asymmetric low intensity war infiltrators). EVERYONE including the Indonesia observers knew that we were talking about the Indonesians, even down to specifying real Indonesian formation organizations and names. WE used to joke with the KOMPASS (Indonesian Special Forces) observers about it and they took it in good humour.

    You may notice that formally the vast bulk of Australian military muscle was based in the South East near the major cities. For the past 20 years there has been a migration North and West. Now most major units are based in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. Australia has also kept up with its nuclear technology and is a mere 180 days away from being able to field a tactically deployable nuke. Australian nuclear technology has even been sold to the US under license to enrich uranium using lasers rather than centrifuges. Now all US weapons grade fissile material is manufactured using Aussie technology.

    The Indons could only make a pest of themselves in Northern Oz and the water barrier between Oz and Indonesia would become a killing ground par excellence. If any KOMPASS Regiments actually arrived the vast distances and VERY harsh landscape would see them evacuating with the ADF making life difficult to boot.

    China currently can’t even bridge the Straits of Taiwan logistically. They can land troops but can’t resupply them. It’ll be a while before China can project all the way to OZ?
