Last night I went to see this movie with some friends. There were some things presented in the movie that I didn't know before (like when Bush found out about the attacks, he sat there reading a book about a goat for 10 minutes instead of leaping to action as I previously assumed he did). This is a movie that my dad probably shouldn't see as he will get so angry and not stop talking about it for a week. To preserve my mom's sanity, they should avoid seeing it.
This may be a naive way of looking at the war in Iraq, and I don't want to make anyone mad enough to call and yell at me, but this is what I think is funny. I think it is interesting that people get so mad and say that the reason we went over there was for oil, like that isn't a valid reason. To me, going over to save our oil supply is a dang good reason. Our whole lifestyle is built on oil. I think it's ironic when the same people who are protesting the war complain about high gas prices. You can't complain about both. Either you don’t like the war, and you are willing to give up using plastic or driving your car, or you support the war and are grateful for the conveniences we have in this country. I fall into the latter category.
