Wait what? It's been a while since I've seen those movies... but how was Iron Eagle patriotic bullshit? Isn't the plot that the US Government sells out a downed pilot to some tinpot dictator for political reasons, and his teen son decides to steal a jet fighter to try and rescue him?
Yeah the original premise was quite anti-government, basically saying that if it were politically inconvenient to attempt a rescue, the powers that be would just let the captured pilot rot. Never watched the other Iron Eagle movies though, so maybe the stories got a more patriotic as they went along!
