You can see the ad on CNN nationwide starting this Friday, and it couldn't come at a more timely point in the history of the war. Last week, President George W. Bush vetoed a bill from Congress that moved to set dates for withdrawing US troops in Iraq, and to end our involvement in the now four year-old war. When asked if he might ever make a movie on the subject, Stone answered, "It's not my generation's war...I'd like to do a picture about the politics behind it though. I find that fascinating." Stone's experience fighting in Vietnam is what made his three films on the subject -- Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, and Heaven and Earth -- so powerful. He feels the parallels between Vietnam and Iraq are difficult to ignore, saying: "I made three movies about Vietnam and I thought it was behind us. This is a bad summer repeat of a war that happened 40 years ago. We must listen to the soldiers who are coming back."
