-"Any massacre should never be fictionalized."...How was it "fictionalized"? He told it like it was, and it wasn't exactly deception and the director made a political point and now millions of people are aware of the fact. I especially like how he pointed out how they waited until all the men were off hunting before they came in for their massacre. Agree with the content of "fictional" Iron Man 3 or not, but I don't see how we're supposed to be up in arms and all 'angry Indian' over it. No one is going to come out of there thinking, "That Mandarin guy just made up a fictional Sand Creek Massacre!" What I object is that you would liken Cheyenne's to let's say Taliban or Islamist extremists, (I also object that you gave out movie spoilers but I've seen it so oh well). We have people on our the N. Cheyenne Rez who have fought in the Afghan wars and have sacrificed, and Sand Creek doesn't need to be likened to Taliban fighters as far as an Iron Man 3 script goes to appease you.
