I agree with you man. I have bled red, white, and blue for this country every day. I served this country for 7 yrs and yet, i do not see why this is such a big deal. C.I.A.D. is right, we are getting a movie and there are still people who are going to complain, it is not what you want. Nothing will ever be perfect enough that everybody agrees. We should all be happy we are getting this movie and stop critiquing it every chance we get...

Was the "America's" part of the "America's movable fighting man" part of the marketing originally? Of COURSE it was just like using ARAH in the early days of 80s was when we were still all hot and heavy with communism! In '64 they were still playing off of the pride of WWII, and we had not yet got in the horror publicly that would become Vietnam. That's part of the whole point of this thing -
The American part of it and having the red, white and blue in there is a significant part of it that has ALWAYS been there and therefore should REMAIN a part of it still! Especially when it's been used by Hasbro to cash in so much on!
That's the other side of why those of us who feel this way feel so strong about this whole thing! Sure the patriotism part of it is the bigger and more important part of it, but also not having Hasbro sell out on that now when they have used it for so long and made so much dough off of it is important too! It's part of the legend and part of GI Joe lore now, and it should STAY that way.
I am going to have agree disagree with all of you who either don't get it or don't feel this way, but that is what it is all about.
I for one want to see it in there, think it should stay in there, am happy we are getting and movie, and want to be proud of it too!
I just don't think I can be as happy though if the legend is changed around with that much (ala UN) and also know that I will not be able to be as proud of it either then.
JMHO, YMMV, my $0.02 -

first of all, a lot of u guys r getting way off topic and are taking this debate to places it shouldn't be. that being said, i for one think the red,white,and blue should be represented and represented proudly but i'm definately not surprised by the decision. it's just typical cowardly political correctness. in this day and age u can't have an opinion. u have to please everyone and also be scared to offend people. yes, it's just a logo and most people don't give a damn but those of us who are fans and grew up watching and reading know that gi joe is all about arah,patriotism,and being proud of our country. this is just a spit in the face in my opnion. a lot of fans have this attitude where they're just happy that we're getting a live action movie but that's just the wrong attitude. it was exactly the same with tf's. so many were just so happy that we got a live action movie that they were just totally blinded and still are at how horrible that movie is. it should be the opposite. instead of being content about getting a movie after all these years we should be demanding that they get it right after all these years we've had to wait. even little things like a logo.

You know what...this topic is just itching for drama.
We are all entitled to our opinions, and we've all made them. Done.
