Fact Or Fiction?
Back in 2005, Nicolas Cage portrayed an arms dealer in the Hollywood movie Lord of War. He’s being chased by an Interpol agent, played by Ethan Hawke, who eventually catches up with Cage and confronts him about the shamelessness of his work.
Cage answers, “I do rub shoulders with some of the most vile, sadistic men calling themselves leaders today. But some of these men are the enemies of your enemies. And while the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss – the President of the United States, who ships more merchandise in a day than I do in a year – sometimes it’s embarrassing to have his fingerprints on the guns. Sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces he can’t be seen supplying. So. You call me evil, but unfortunately for you, I’m a necessary evil.”
Here, Mark Dice looks back upon the movie in a video called Fact Or Fiction?
