*** I am lost as to which of these are anti-American (as opposed to anti-military or anti-war).

** The implication was that Flagg ''assumed'' the young man was a spy and shot him without verification, with added implication that he was, in fact, a civilian. This would seem to be born out in a later episode when Winchester tricked Flagg, and the MPs suggest that is not Flagg's first wild goose chase.

** Addressing a popular chaplain as "Padre" is a US military tradition that dates at least as far back as World War One, possibly earlier, and is not unheard of in the British Army, either. It's a detail establishing Potter as an OldSoldier and indicating that Mulcahy is a good Chaplain (troops will only call a chaplain "The Padre" if they like him).
** Klinger ''does'' look a little bit like Romero.

*** Yet Hawkeye does nothing to actually ''remove'' it from the camp, he just prevents it from being used again, despite being given a list of artillery units who would be more than happy to accept it. And, despite it be ''his'' gun, he for some reason feels the need to sneak around at night to disable it, as if he weren't allowed to do anything with it or if it was actively being used by an artillery unit. And Hawkeye ''didn't'' want to remove it from the camp in the first place; Potter had to order him to get rid of it, and Hawkeye fought him the entire time.

Though he knows its inoperable, the Red Chinese and North Koreans whose fire it draws don't.

*** If we accept that it's Hawkeye's adherence to his Hippocratic Oath at work, that makes him an IdiotHero at ''best''. A lot of the things he does will likely result in more of the young American men he ostensibly wants to save being killed or maimed.



* When the doctors go to do a prisoner swap at Rainbow Bridge, Hawkeye and Trapper try to befriend the enemy and seem at-ease with the North Koreans and chastise Frank for disliking them. This gives the impression that Americans with guns are bad, but North Koreans with guns are okay.

** A good-faith agreement would have both sides show up unarmed. Going unarmed to meet your heavily-armed enemies is just plain stupid.

* Alternately, it's not the 70s at all: it's actually a test being done in the future, far enough ahead that they don't actually know the difference between '70s culture and '50s culture. They were (will be) using different sets of clones with the same sets of memories, and the same "title" for each character- Hawkeye for the happy-go-lucky manic-not-depressive surgeon, BJ for his PutOnABus partner and BJ for his replacement, Burns for the belligerent thinks-he-knows-it-all, Houlihan for the snarky love interest. Two of the same O'Reilly series clones (Radar) happened to be used for the groups of the movie and the television series.
