Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell responded to critics saying the box office hit movie about his life in Afghanistan is pro-war propaganda.
 
"There's nothing glorious about war," Luttrell said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." "There’s nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. There’s nothing glorious about having to leave your home for six to eight months while your family's back here and you're away."
 
Luttrell was the only survivor of a team of four who were dispatched in 2005 to kill a Taliban leader.
 
"Bottom line is that there's bad people everywhere. And every now and again we are going to have to step to them to make sure that we preserve our way of life," Luttrell told Fox News.

"It's people like my teammates and I that have to do that, and the men and women in the military. But there's nothing glorious about it, there’s nothing pro-war — nobody wants war, it’s the most horrible thing in the world," he said.
