I've often wondered about that. By my rough count, there are about 5 movies about Bosnia, one movie about Somalia, a few about the Gulf War, none about Panama, one about Grenada, a few dozen about Vietnam, 15 about Korea, and 205,159 movies about World War II.
There's money to be made there. Just like Fox News, stepping in to fill a conservative vacuum in a liberal media world, you'd figure that at some point the allure of making money would be enough for Hollywood to crank out a few good war movies.

" one about Grenada "
Well, there is one made about Grenada, well, sort of.
HeartBreak Ridge ( Clint Eastwood ) was loosely based on what happened in Grenada.
