Petition to boycott Hasbro and Paramount Pictures for selling out G.I. Joe as a non American hero.

I as well as millions of others have watch G.I. Joe as children. We have looked up to them as a great American Hero. Now Hasbro and Paramount pictures are bowing to pressure and stripped G.I. Joe's identity. They will no longer be know as the "Great American Hero" but rather a global operation force with anti-U.S. military point of views.

Think this is bad enough? Here is another low blow. G.I. Joe is now an acronym "Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity."

What exactly are there reasoning behind this? In interviews it was due to marketing problems involving G.I. Joe's connection to the U.S. military.
I say so what. Did they not know what movie license they bought?

Should the next Rocky movie depict Rocky Balboa as a generic mix breed immigrant?
HELL NO!
Should Captain American be brought back to life as Captain U.N.?
HELL NO!
Should Tony Montana in Scarface be remade as a white meth dealer?
HELL NO!

Please sign the petition and let these companies know that our childhood heroes G.I. Joe should not be sold out.

    This is bs. GI Joe is "A Real American Hero". I understand that overseas the team became "Action Force" and that the character "Gi Joe" became known as "Action Man", but to try and force us Americans to swallow this load of bull is too much. I have some E
