Default Bulletproof Salesman

Coming out of lurk mode to recommend a documentary called Bulletproof Salesman. Did a brief search and didn't see any mention of this movie here. This guy sells modified Land cruisers in war zones. In a product testing sequence they put >600 rounds in a 100. Thought you folks would be interested. I streamed it from Netflix.

There is no such thing as a bulletproof car.

Cool. I just added it to my instant queue.

"As an armored luxury car salesman, Fidelis Cloer has made a fortune from America's war in Iraq. This documentary examines how this successful German war profiteer earns money when violence increases and soldiers' lives are threatened. A dedicated capitalist who roots for the escalation of the war, Cloer predicted correctly that the situation in Iraq would deteriorate and provide opportunities for him to get rich."

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
