Woody Harrelson compares the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the last American wars

During a press conference, Woody Harrelson feigned a slip to draw a parallel between the invasion of Ukraine and the wars led by the United States.

Political minute at the Cannes Film Festival. American actor Woody Harrelson spoke briefly about the war in Ukraine this Sunday morning during a press conference, drawing parallels between the violent Russian offensive and recent wars led by the United States.

The actor of Welcome to Zombieland is in Cannes to defend the film Without filter (Triangle of Sadness in original version) by Swede Ruben Östlund, in competition. He was responding to reporters in the company of the filmmaker and the rest of the cast, when someone asked him what he thinks of his character:

“The character is a Marxist, and I’m an anarchist,” he said. “So in that sense, we’re different. I’m the kind of guy who finds it abominable that a superpower, with all its military might, unprovoked, attacks a country like Iraq… uh sorry, Afghan… uh, Viet… Korea… no, sorry, Ukraine!”

So many countries that have been in conflict or occupied by the United States over the past 70 years.

New slip

We can also see in this speech a nod to the embarrassing slip of the tongue by George W. Bush, in Dallas earlier this week. During a speech in which he criticized the invasion of Ukraine, the 43rd president of the United States mistakenly said “Iraq”… which he himself invaded in 2003 .

“The result is the absence of a balance of power in Russia and a one-man decision to launch a totally unwarranted and brutal invasion of Iraq,” George W. Bush said, before shaking his head and saying. correct himself: “I mean, from Ukraine…”

Without filter follows passengers on a luxury cruise who find their lives of comfort threatened when a storm hits.
