Fahrenheit 9/11

9:52 am PHT

Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11 is one piece of brilliant propaganda. Propaganda? Yes. Documentary? Not really. Anyone who thinks critically should at least see that Michael Moore is definitely taking potshots (some below the belt) at an incumbent president. The problem with watching this movie is that you don’t know what to believe anymore.

I would suggest that anyone watching this movie take it with a several grains of salt then read Dave Kopel’s “Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 911”. At least that article successfully attempts to appear objective in criticizing Michael Moore’s “documentary”.

Nevertheless, I am glad that our president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo decided to pull out the symbolic Philippine “humanitarian mission” consisting of 51 soldiers out of Iraq in order to save Angelo de la Cruz. This film fully convinced me that the War in Iraq was definitely done in dishonesty by the Bush administration. The U.S. invaded a nation and intervened in local affairs claiming to take down a regime that will attack the U.S. with Weapons of Mass Destruction then backsliding to say that they are liberating Iraqis from dictatorial oppression. I’m not saying that Saddam in Iraq is a good thing; I’m saying that the U.S. in Iraq is not a good thing.
