Thoughts on Michael Moore, from a GI in Mosul, Iraq:
What I'm going to try to do out here, to show people what its really like, and to get an opposing view point is I'm going to get several of my Iraqi friends that are interpreters for us here, drag them into my room, set up the laptop, show them the movie and film them watch the movie and shoot a short documentary on their thoughts and reactions to Michael Moores biased movie. And maybe get small little interviews with people in my Platoon. Maybe do the same thing. I think I'll call my documentary: FAHRENHEIT 7.62 (7.62 is the caliber of ammunition the AK47 fires) I'll keep you guys posted on how that goes.
He's a military blogger, and here's the entry that excerpt came from. If you think as I do that his film is a worthwhile idea you may want to consider leaving an encouraging comment.
And you'll certainly want My War - Fear and Loathing in Iraq in your favorites and on your blogrolls.
Do you know of two teenage boys named Dale and Jeffrey who live in Mudville? They play the guitar and are around 17. If you know these two boys please comment back. Thank YouPosted by Casie and Jackie at July 14, 2004 02:04 AM
"The Triumph of the Swill", blog entry about Moore's F911, links to several reviews that refutes Moore's lies and adds its own comments a barbs. My bottom line is that a movie this dishonest requires good citizens to actively inform others how wrong it is.
Have a look and tell me what you think. It is on:
I viewed the online trailer at the Apple site (best site for trailers) and it's incredibly disgusting. Moore has more ways of twisiting the truth and taking things out of context than one can imagine.
I personally think he'd make a great anchor man for some TV station. He can distort things like you wouldn't believe.
Here's the main link for Apple's trailers:
I think PC users will need to download the free QuickTime software. It's better than the crummy Windows Media Player (which I have to sometimes use on my Mac)
But everyone really ought to see this just to realize how disgusting the movie really is. Moore frequently tries to use what appear to be harmless lampoons. But when you see the patterns develop of how he distorts reality......it's really disgusting.
Use the Windows Media Player at another previews movie site (although in the long run you'll fine that Apple's movie preview site is easily the best on the web and is so ranked.)
Disgust is the only word I can think of about the trailer. Other words that come to mind are not suitable for posting here.Posted by Steve at July 14, 2004 07:40 AM
