    Reader comments on Fahrenheit 9/11

    Subject: Re: Michael Moore review

    "As to no president being perfect, in terms of President Bush that has got to be the biggest understatement ever written. President Bush is a terrorist. He and his entourage of maniacal psycho-killers exploit the fear and paranoia of ordinary people in order to take advantage of the situation."

    Really, now? What exactly did President Bush do? He simply waged war on a country that attacked ours--to me, that seems quite just. I must say though, you're right--defending a country full of people like Michael Moore seems pretty foolish at times. Why won't you just get off your high horse and respect the fact that he is trying to defend our country?

    Also, I don't like that Moore is so anti-war and he shows it to the people that are fighting for our country. if you don't like it, get out! Go to a country where you aren't protected by a powerful army!

    "Welcome back, troops--we think you're murderers." a nice welcome...

    Try telling someone who was in the WTC that this war is pointless--oh wait, you can't to most of them. Think about that...

    Summed up: Don't forget the REAL 9/11.

    Re: Michael Moore review

    I've seen 2 of Michael Moore's films. Seeing them both made me grateful he is out there as he lends popular appeal to issues most of us don't deal with. He is not Anti-American. He is just tugging at this continent's social & moral conscience which can only make us all very very uncomfortable.

    I read this review as well as the responses to it because I can't decide whether to see 911 or not. As to 911, war, the invasion of Iraq or President Bush I am already horrified by them all and don't need to be converted. Unfortunately, I think Mr. Moore does make his films for the converted. But at least he makes them and gets millions of people to think about what their responsibilities are to this world.

    As to no president being perfect, in terms of President Bush that has got to be the biggest understatement ever written. President Bush is a terrorist. He and his entourage of maniacal psycho-killers exploit the fear and paranoia of ordinary people in order to take advantage of the situation. If it weren't for the tragic events of September 11th, President Bush would be a nonentity. I was wondering if Michael Moore was going to show a bit of that in his movie.
