GUEST,Frankham BS: REVIEW Fahrenheit 9/11 (76* d) RE: BS: REVIEW Fahrenheit 9/11 28 Jun 04


Peter, I believe that the Iraqi people being under the yoke of the hideous dictator, Saddam, is not inconsistent with the daily lives of the people in the country being somewhat happy. Women had more freedom then. They did have weddings and parties just as they do under any dicatatorship. I'm sure that the Germans and Italians under fascism found some respite from their war.

The idea that is was all misery for the Iraqi citizens is not necessarilly true and is a propaganda of its own. I think Micheal had it right. Now, it's a living hell over there. Young women are forced into their homes. It's not safe at all to go out in the street.

Micheal Moore has made a fair film in my view because it mostly asks questions. There are moments where he pokes fun but the powerful parts are the ones that make you think and not be satisfied with an easy answer (that you get from the White House).

Those who accuse Moore of propaganda would do well to look at the kind that informs their view of the film.

Frank
