did you see them going off to fight?
I always wondered why Tony was so erratic and bad-tempered at this part of the movie. The reason why Tony Stark is so indignant towards the term, “solder”, is ‘cause his generation’s wars are so different than that of Captain Steve Rogers’ World War II. Our generation’s wars are so shady and full of deceit, like Iran and Iraq and the Cold War, while American efforts in World War II was one of the greatest acts of altruism I’ve ever seen. Captain America hasn’t been exposed to these types of higher-up duplicities. This is why they were always fighting and always in disagreement throughout the entire movie: Captain Steve Rogers truly is a soldier lost in time. Being a soldier back then, when you obeyed your superior officers and fought for your country, you did it for a just cause. Tony refuses to fight for America because our wars are full of ulterior motives and are less about doing the right thing. Tony loathes the fact that Americans enter war blindly without knowing what for and may even lose their life. Agent Phil Coulson lost his life this way. That’s why Tony Stark marched out of the damn room when Nick Fury was talking about him. This director is fucking talented.
