| ||If anyone is tempted to follow Dunter's advice and watch "Loose Change", I'd suggest you use the viewing guide at http://www.ccdominoes.com/lc/LooseChangeGuide.html to give you a little more perspective on the "facts" in that film. The Loose Change guide and other sites, like http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/defense/1227842.html and http://www.geocities.com/debunking911/index.htm, provide everything a rational person knows to be true, but a paranoid fool like Dunter doesn't want to believe.
Just because Bush cynically capitalized on post-9/11 emotion to dupe Americans into supporting a war in Iraq, doesn't mean we should discard 9/11 as myth. That logic is the same as an anti-zionist denying the Holocaust because that tragedy helped promote the creation of Israel - the only difference is one of scale. When we reject 9/11 reality in favor of fantasy, we ignore the real problems the world faces in favor of a self-serving and parochial agenda to villianize Bush (and I think we can all agree that Bush is doing a great job of villianizing himself). At the same time, by falsely laying the blame on Bush, we become apologists for the actual perpetrators of the crime.
I haven't seen United 93 yet, but if Greengrass handled it with half the dignity and integrity I saw in his extraordinary "Bloody Sunday", then I'm sure it deserves an A.|
| ||I HATED the idea of this movie before I even saw it, but after talking with a few people who did make it out to see it, and reading a slew of overwhelmingly positive reviews, I finally mustered up the courage to go see it last night. It was absolutely terrifying, but not at all exploitive like I'd imagined it would be. I think I still have a lot of confusing memories and emotions surrounding that day, and watching this helped me to better understand them and give them a proper release. Also, dunter can eat my ass.|
