Why Farenheit 9/11 is wrong
  The various reasons to invade al-Iraq were mostly mentioned, but, for example, Colin Powell's reason was totally ignored.  He simply wanted to fight North Korea and al-Iraq, because those were the two aggressor nations of the last fifty years who still survived (he doesn't count US aggression).  The scary fuck considers Kim Jong-Il, the current ruler of North Korea, and Kim Song-Il, his father, who invaded South Korea for the Korean War, the same person, I guess.  A whole "let the sins of the fathers be visited upon the sons" schpiel, which works perfectly well with the overall religio-monarchist ouevre of this administration.  A chart will be made here showing how each administration "in" person (Bush/Cheney/Rove/Rumsfeld/Powell/Rice) had their own reasons to go to war.  Mr. Rove, for instance, knows war presidents are popualar, and his only interest is election politics.  I actually have no idea why Ms. Rice went along with them.  The most glaring omission, perhaps, was the lack of a religious aspect.  Bush's supporters HATE Islam, and probably weren't even paying attention, or though it was all a "wink and a nod," when Mr. Bush spoke that it wasn't a war on Islam.
  Mr. Moore also got the sound of the planes going into the buildings wrong.   I got a good listen to the second plane crashing in, and the whine of the engines was the most significant feature.
