(February 3, 2015) Was Chris Kyle the American Sniper or American Liar? He got caught telling five big lies. ...
Kyle has become a kulturel phenomenon: Movie reviewer David French wrote:
The movie gives America something it's lacked since the start of the war -- a war hero on a truly national, cultural scale...with the success of this movie, Chris Kyle has entered the pantheon of American warriors ... giving a new generation of young boys a warrior-hero to look up to, to emulate. After all, our kids' heroes can't be -- must not be -- exclusively quarterbacks, rappers, or point guards.
No one is claiming that Chris Kyle is Jesus. Every human being has flaws. And he risked no more and no less than the thousands upon thousands of anonymous soldiers and Marines who fought house-to-house during their own turns downrange, but he undeniably did his job better than any man who came before him -- or any man since -- and he did that job as part of his selfless service to our nation.
