    I hate to defend this pint-size psycho, but there are entirely legitimate reasons to be critical of him and this isn't one of them. If anything, this is something dumb his lawyer said that has been subsequently taken out of context.

    From what seems to me to be a more accurate source. Jake Tapper from one of CNN's blogs.

    At least OAG is kidding and can turn them off.

    Thanks for the info about the Afghanistan quote, muldrake. Celebrity news makes me sleepy and I only half pay attention and would never have known Cruise didn't actually say that without your help.

    I did have this little feeling that we were not being generous enough toward Mr. Cruise here. It's hard to be generous when you want to exploit some embarrassment for The Cause. But in the long run I think generosity = winning.

    fixt for posterity. As long as we remember the fallen, we damn well better remember how horrible it was and the reason why was a bunch of idiot generals who needed a war in their generation to try out their dandy new death toys for the glory of their peens.

    For those interested in the lead up, Barbara Tuchman's 'Proud Tower' and 'Guns of August' are good starting ground.

    I'll no doubt get slammed for this, but why do we honor people who go to foreign lands to target and kill innocent people at the behest of sociopaths?

    I understand that we want to believe they are doing something honorable, but in point of fact they are the tip of the spear of empire. Their job is to impose our will on others. The reason people are attacking the US is because we have been attacking them for decades.

    If our troops withdrew to the US the world would immediately become a safer place for all the 7B people of the world.

    Ok.. I'm so sorry for him, poor Tom.
  7. Another way to look at it is that the public could believe this about TC. Perception = reality in the world of PR. Nuance is not welcome in Hollywood.

    This flap shows that not only the broader public could believe this about TC, on some levels, they already DID. If you read the comments to the gossip sites, you'll see the work of Anonymous' information campaign. The gossip-reading public knows about Shelly, disconnection, Xenu, thetans, child labor, the whole bit.

    Game over, TC. Go off to your mansion(s) and count your $$ like Scrooge McDuck. No amount of Pat Kingsley magick can bring you back from this one. And as a parting gift, I leave you the winning quote from D-Listed's Caption This contest:

    Who cares if it's accurate? It's true for me!

    Have any Olympic athletes called him out yet? That one is still on the table.

    I have no sympathy for Tom Cruise or his slimy lawyer Bert Fields, who is one of the 99% of lawyers who give the rest a bad name. I just don't think inaccurate information is useful. The tiny little carcass of Tom Cruise should be showered liberally with any slings and arrows that are likely to work.

    whether his comments were taken out of context or not...
    he is still a scum bag cult supporter who has worked diligently to try to spread Applied Scholastics to the school systems. He even met with Rod Paige in DC way back when. AND he spear headed the 911 First Responders detox program.
    And besides, in those 110 days he didn't see Suri, he could have easily visited her. Instead he went o the IAS ball. Everyone is more outraged than he about this whole thing because he is obviously going with the "kids are adults in kid's bodies" belief. He did say that if Suri asked him to be there for her first day of school, he would have been. He never once said he wanted to be there or he missed being there for her first day of school.
    So fuck you Tom in all your fail.

    That's all true (AFAIK), except that he actually saw Suri 3 times during those 110 days.

    Carry on...

    Did any of Cruise's movies have a concerned father character? Maybe that's the problem: He didn't have a role that he could play during the depositions, and defaulted to his arrogant prick personality. ("It was brutal, just brutal. I couldn't handle the Suri!")

    For a guy that invented gesture interfaces (= hired as an actor in a movie using them), he's not too tech hip.

    Lose: Talked on the phone with Suri. (Jury reaction: "Yawn, boring!")
    Win: Had many video chats with Suri. Took her on a video tour of the area. (Jury reaction: "Ooooh, cool!")

    Tom: Smart phone, Google Chat. Done, over!

    If they did, it wasn't Tom Cruise. Can you imagine him playing a concerned father?

    He does a pretty good job playing a shallow sociopath, though.

    Maybe that's because it doesn't require much acting.

    One of the half-ironic things about these stories is the idea that Tom Cruise is actually depriving Suri of his presence in an evil manner. Seriously, if this asshole was your dad, would his absence from your life be a bad thing?

    If I were Suri, I'd want all the money I could get from Tom Cruise, but as for Tom Cruise himself, GTFO. Stay away.

    His absence from my life wouldn't be too much of a problem, he's a Scientologist and a bit of a loose cannon too.
    He's welcome to his money, accepting it is another way of staying connected.

    I would be happy to pass on both, but Suri is still too young to make those decisions so we have to hope her mother will make wise choices for her.

    No sir I can't, but I haven't seen that many Cruise films (three?) so I didn't know if I'd missed one.

    no I meant their food is pre-measured in bags and fake Italian shit. And anyone who takes someone there "for a date" should be dumped. LOL

    Hey I just thought of a way to troll Tom Cruise:, with pictures of lovely Russian ladies and a collection of letters in poor English explaining what these ladies are willing to put up with in order to marry Mr. Cruise.

    Anyone who wants to run with the idea, it is yours.
