According to reports by MSNBC, Mel Gibson made statements that were indirectly referring to the condition of the United States during a promotional tour of his new film called “Apocalypto” which is about the fall of the Mayan empire.. . . Gibson made comments that suggested that the Mayan civilization and the United States have a lot in common. Gibson said, “The precursors to a civilization that’s going under are the same, time and time again.” He also said, “What’s human sacrifice if not sending guys off to Iraq for no reason?”

Us Magazine reported that Gibson also said jokingly, “I just wanna draw the parallels. I don’t wanna be a doomsayer, but the Mayan calendar ends in 2012. So have fun, boys and girls!”
