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?
The mean American hating A-rab dictator and his mean American hating A-rab minions do mean things to our brave serviceman (who is in THEIR country for some reason). And the biggest thing that sticks in my craw from that movie (so much that I still remember it years later) was the put down of President Carter, who was ridiculed, and the idea that the "tough guy" Ronald Reagan was going to swagger in and make everything alright. Give me a break.
