Oliver ‘Philosopher’ Stone: America’s Military Really “Scares Me”

Controversial filmmaker Oliver Stone has never been a fan of America, and we now learn that he’s actually “scared” of our military might…which obviously begs the question of why he still lives here at all.

Stone, who has been known to rub elbows and heap lavish praise upon dictators like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, is hoping to film a lovey-dovey documentary on the “misunderstood” Vladimir Putin in the near future. But right now, he’s focused on blasting the United States.

We’re trying to say that we’re an empire,” Stone lamented to CNN’s Don Lemon. “We are spread all over the world, spending fortunes on foreign wars … and trying to police the world, trying to control through regime change, through propaganda, through news. We’re giving our young people a view of the world with America as the savior of the world … we’re not, and we can’t be.”

He continued, “What scares me is America’s military power. It’s enormous, ten times larger than China or Russia. We have the ability to terminate life on this planet; we have the nuclear capacity to do so … this is very bothersome.”

There’s absolutely nothing “scary” about foreign dictators, however, in Oliver’s universe. What a thinker.
