Willis Fights For Iraqi Troops

BRUCE WILLIS has gone on the attack against Americans who constantly criticise their army's role in the occupation of Iraq.

THE SIXTH SENSE star insists too many people are being duped by US media bosses who are failing to highlight the positive stories coming out of Iraq, and he's sick of hearing fellow Americans "spitting on" troops fighting in the troubled state

Willis suggests opponents of the war should visit troops in Iraq, like he did, to get a real sense of what's going on there.

The 49-year-old says, "Nobody is pro war. I am against terrorism. I would like to see terrorism stopped. Those are my politics as it concerns the world.

"I went to Iraq to see for myself what was going on over there. I don't watch the news. I don't read newspapers. I don't rely on what I feel is a manipulated form of information from reading newspapers and the electronic media.

"That theory was confirmed when I went to Iraq because what I saw when I was over there was soldiers - young kids for the most part - helping people in Iraq; helping getting the power turned back on, helping get hospitals open, helping get the water turned back on and you don't hear any of that on the news.

"You hear, 'X number of people were killed today,' which I think does a huge disservice. It's like spitting on these young men and women who are over there fighting to help this country."
