Bruce Willis dies hard on Iraq?

I knew I liked Bruce Willis.

From the Vanity Fair article this month:
"I am for stopping world aggression. And sometimes that takes punching guys in the face. And keep punching 'em until they don't get up anymore. So the president didn't say the right thing. Who cares? Politicians misspeak and make mistakes all the [expletive] time. He said the war was about weapons of mass destruction. But because they didn't find all of them, it was b.s.? Not really. They know for a fact that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, chemical-gas agents. They could be buried somewhere in the desert. He could have moved them, overnight, across the border, into Syria — and we can't go into Syria."
Granted, I haven't read the entire piece. Granted, some are saying he actually now comes off as a whiny anti-war punk. Granted, he also apparently believes JFK's killers might still be out there. But I'll take what I can get at this point.

The guy has been a tireless supporter of the troops, more than once heading overseas to entertain with his band, and he famously put a personal, million-dollar bounty on Osama's head during an appearance on O'Reilly.

If this quote is legit, that makes Die Hard 4 worth watching this summer on principle alone.

So that makes Bruce Willis, Gary Sinise, James Woods and Jon Voight... Four out of the 120,000 members of the Screen Actors Guild. We're making progress!

Except "whiny anti-war punks" don't offer to go to the Middle East on a personal manhunt for Osama if the military gave them the proper armor and assistance. I've always liked Bruce Willis. He and James Woods are in a minority in Hollywood-- a minority in the sense of boldly spoken pro-war actors.
