Video: Flame and Citroen

If you get a chance, or are tech-savvy enough, you should look for the Danish film called “Flame and Citroen.”  Be sure to get English subtitles.

As you watch this film think on a few things:
– What brought the main characters to this point?
– Could it have been avoided?
– Should it have been avoided?
– Which tactics worked?
– Which tactics failed?
– Which of those apply to your AO?
– What might you do differently?
– How many people can opperate together affectively?
– How was OSPEC kept or not kept, and how would you control it?
– How can you be sure you know for whom you’re acting, and why?

And, I’d borrow a quote from an oft repeated film, “… but could you bear it?

Up the Republic!
– Cato, the American

    Netflix has it via instant download. Look in the ‘foreign film’ – ‘Denmark’ section…
