Back in the 1980s, I was addicted to American action movies, especially the First Blood series starring Sylvester Stallone and the Delta Force series starring Chuck Norris. They were the coolest  on the earth, invincible and ruthless yet kind-hearted.

I was particularly struck by Norris’ character in The Delta Force, Major Scott McCoy, who was the ultimate American hero, leading a team of special forces commandos to take down terrorists without breaking a sweat. The propaganda of cocksure, righteous Americans reigning supreme over the evil in the world was evident throughout the movie – as the action and suspense unfolded, the American flag badges on the shoulders of the commandos served as a constant reminder.
