Farenheit 9/11

I have not had the chance to see Farenheit 9/11 but based on what I have been reading and hearing from various sources, it seems that most say that all of it is a lie. I personally enjoyed Bowling for Columbine but I tried to remember while watching Michael Moore's movies that I should try to stay neutral about the things he says because he is only telling one side of the story. If anyone had already seen it could you give me a review of it? Thanks~

That movie made me think deeply about

Japanese government decision to send Self- defence force and

to determine its responsibilities in Iraq.

 

If Mr. Kerry win the presidency election,

what would happen to relationship between the US government and Koizumi administration??

 

What is our core competence?

 

 

sensitivity, attentive behavior to others, high valued skills

Contact the Kerry Campaign office and ask his position.

Repugnican propaganda is not to be believed. F-9/11 is legit.

 

The criticism of the presentation has a tiny bit of merit, but the message is valid and this is important info that the mainstream media is afraid to present because they fear expected retaliation from Repugs.

 

Republican money can buy all the slick promotion they want, they can repackage it and try to sell it all they want. And their dirty tricks will sway a few small thinkers.

 

But their garbage is still garbage, no matter how they package it.

 

Remember, the republican machine is made up of the same exact conspirators who recently pled guilty to illegally jamming phone lines to prevent democratic voters from calling to ask for rides to the polls in 2002. These are the folks who illegally purged the voter rolls in Florida in 2000 so that they could steal a 'win' in a close election.

 

Their precious Ronald Reagan stole the '80 election by illegally negotiating the non-release of our hostages, in '72 they were caught breaking into the offices of democratic party headquarters to plant bugs, etc. etc. The list goes on and on...

 

And this is only the list of dirty treasonous criminal conspiracies that they have been caught doing, who knows what secrets they have kept?

 

They will say and do anything to achieve positions of power, and when they do, only the wealthiest (their campaign contributers) benefit, at a very high cost for everybody else. And they have no regard for the law or doing what is right, all that matters to them is perception.

 

It is immoral to ever vote for a republican. Their record speaks for itself.

 

Kerry volunteered for and saw combat; bush ran and hid, played pilot until they asked him to pee in a cup to see what he was on, then he just quit showing up and he still lies about it.

 

Kerry then returned from the war (with his earned medals) and protested the war - this displays conscience and ought to be yet another a badge of honor. If anyone earned the right to do so it was a combat veteran and I respect him for speaking the truth!

 

Bush said that while at Yale in the late '60's, he doesn't remember anyone discussing the Viet Nam War. There was a lot of discussion, he just wasn't a part of it, he was getting wasted, no wonder he doesn't remember!

 

Kerry then became a lawyer, a prosecutor, and continued to work for the good of the people, and continues to today!

 

At the same time Bush was drinking, screwing (and paying for at least one girlfriend's abortion), cussing like Cheney (who, like Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Limbaugh, Gingrich, and most of the repugnicans refused to serve but now send Americans to fight and die in wars that they and their families would never be a part of), all the while calling himself a 'Christian'...

 

So Kerry married a wealthy widow, is this a crime? At least he didn't marry a teenage murderer like Laura Bush!

 

Kerry may not be the perfect candidate, but he is a thoughtful, intelligent, decent, hard working, concerned, moral, decent gentleman. Is there anybody in the entire world today who would say the same about george w. bush?

The fool is the person who ignores the evidence and, having no reasonable response, resorts to attacking the presenter of the evidence. Such is de rigor for Bush repugnicans.

 

The bigger fool is the moron who believes their crap! The evidence is all around you, just take off your blinders to understand their lies!

 

Anyone interested in the truth of the Bush agenda ought to read the Washington Monthly. Their well thought out and well written articles should be read by all.

 

This one will explain the garbage repugs spout about 'presenting both sides of an issue'

 

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/...6.glastris.html

 

As to the real reasons behind what they have gotten us into in Iraq, I suggest that one much more plausable scenario can be found by clicking here

 

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/...4.marshall.html

 

Whatever the truth is as to why they ignored the UN and turned our allies against us, they lied about Iraq's link to 9/11, they lied about weapons of mass destruction, they let bin Laden get away as a favor to the rest of his family, longtime Bush friends, and they used Iraq to confuse us so that we wouldn't see how lame and destructive their 'leadership' is.

 

They claim to be Christians while cussing and killing, they keep secrets such as who wrote their energy policy and health care policy (neither of which benefit American citizens, just corporate campaign contributers like Ken Lay of Enron!)

 

Bush and Cheney can't even go out in public anywhere in the world anymore! The entire world hates them, except for the few 'dead enders' hanging on in desperate hope and belief that all of this loss of American life in Iraq was not in vain!

Rest assured that anyone who says anything critical of F-9/11 has an agenda. See what the independant media (not Fox!) says about it.

 

And go to http://www.michaelmoore.com/ to see his responses to the lies of his critics.

 

The Bush believers want to believe what they have swallowed, to accept the truth would be to admit that they have been wrong all along...

I never quite know whether Moore is as ignorant as he looks, or even if that would be humanly possible. Baghdad was for years the official, undisguised home address of Abu Nidal, then the most-wanted gangster in the world, who had been sentenced to death even by the PLO and had blown up airports in Vienna* and Rome. Baghdad was the safe house for the man whose "operation" murdered Leon Klinghoffer. Saddam boasted publicly of his financial sponsorship of suicide bombers in Israel. (Quite a few Americans of all denominations walk the streets of Jerusalem.) In 1991, a large number of Western hostages were taken by the hideous Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and held in terrible conditions for a long time. After that same invasion was repelled—Saddam having killed quite a few Americans and Egyptians and Syrians and Brits in the meantime and having threatened to kill many more—the Iraqi secret police were caught trying to murder former President Bush during his visit to Kuwait. Never mind whether his son should take that personally. (Though why should he not?) Should you and I not resent any foreign dictatorship that attempts to kill one of our retired chief executives? (President Clinton certainly took it that way: He ordered the destruction by cruise missiles of the Baathist "security" headquarters.) Iraqi forces fired, every day, for 10 years, on the aircraft that patrolled the no-fly zones and staved off further genocide in the north and south of the country. In 1993, a certain Mr. Yasin helped mix the chemicals for the bomb at the World Trade Center and then skipped to Iraq, where he remained a guest of the state until the overthrow of Saddam. In 2001, Saddam's regime was the only one in the region that openly celebrated the attacks on New York and Washington and described them as just the beginning of a larger revenge. Its official media regularly spewed out a stream of anti-Semitic incitement. I think one might describe that as "threatening," even if one was narrow enough to think that anti-Semitism only menaces Jews. And it was after, and not before, the 9/11 attacks that Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi moved from Afghanistan to Baghdad and began to plan his now very open and lethal design for a holy and ethnic civil war. On Dec. 1, 2003, the New York Times reported—and the David Kay report had established—that Saddam had been secretly negotiating with the "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il in a series of secret meetings in Syria, as late as the spring of 2003, to buy a North Korean missile system, and missile-production system, right off the shelf. (This attempt was not uncovered until after the fall of Baghdad, the coalition's presence having meanwhile put an end to the negotiations.)

DC being a political town, and people who have to go to the movies to get an insight as to what the left wants you to believe, just doesn't make sense.

 

If you want to know what the democrats are thinking, go to the DNC, and vice versa for the RNC.

 

ASK for a tour (that ain't a hard thing to do).

 

Think of all of the institutions here in DC (for an info nerd ,DC is heaven).
