Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!
5 August 2008 | by lordkhuzdulSee all my reviews

Aah, finally, a serious documentary (not the sensational conspiracy theory type American audiences seem to prefer) about the dangerous cracks in American democracy! Maybe, finally, it can get a few points across amongst the American audiences. I sincerely wish some similar people could do a documentary about what is really happening in Iraq. Then you would understand why the rest of the world is at best annoyed with, and at worst full of hatred against the United States.

Wake up and smell the coffee, my American friends! Good morning to you from Middle East! You should clean up your own house before trying to bring 'freedom' and 'democracy' over here. You have a dirty kitchen, and thus, your brand of 'freedom and democracy' is not very healthy for us.

So get up and start cleaning... and maybe we could have some peace and quiet over here while you're busy with that.
