Following up on 'Bowling for Columbine', film-maker Michael Moore provides deep and though-provoking insights on the American security system, the level of paranoia, fear, uncertainty, false values and patriotism, which all combined together to set a stage for George W. Bush to launch a war on Iraq instead of focusing on getting the real culprit(s) behind the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This documentary also focuses on how some Saudis were safely and secretly flown out of America while planes were ostensibly grounded after the attacks. Archived film footage, candid interviews with politicians, and an overall waste of public funds for a war that was initiated on false pretension to wit: a weapon of mass distraction - to take the focus away from the real enemy and get Americans glued to their TV sets to watch innocent Iraqis and Afghans getting killed. And a war that would eventually alienate the U.S.A. and it's citizens from almost every country on Earth. Written by rAjOo (

skillful, patriotic, truthful, a must to watch even if you don't agree with it
28 June 2004 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. The biggest help you can give to your fellow people is to read, watch and know, that's all. can you do that? watch and decide for yourself, you're human, you have a brain, why let me and the opposing critics tell you what to do? You will listen to Americans' testimonies, the soldiers, the everyday people of US and Iraq. You will see Americans' rights destroyed. You will hear it from their lips. The movie is not an attack on a country or its people, only on the person who is benefiting from their loss. It just states facts that you or me as North Americans wouldn't easily find unless we went looking for it, which is what we should do, but most don't have the time. I've watched countless crappy movies and I'm sure you have too. So spending 2 hours and a few dollars to watch something that might change the way you think of today's so called democracy, is a must. You might not agree, but chances will after watching it. If it wasn't telling the truth it wouldn't have the bush supporters after to destroy it. And if you notice most people either really like it or really hate it. and those who really hate it are the ones that don't really love their country. Because this movie is quite sympathetic to the soldiers but not to the one who sent them there for his reasons and not the people's.

it's just 2 hours. watch it. other recommended features: The corporation, Manufacturing consent, Bowling for columbine. all get 10/10 for truth.
