So wtf is up with the movie United 93. I have a few objections.
1. We don't know the real story, we have a few cell phone communications, by no means could we possibly know that the way shit went down, actually went down that way. So in my opinion its about as truthful to say its a "TRUE STORY" as it is to say that the South won the civil war.
2. Am I the only one horrified that Hollywood is profiting off such a horrible tragedy. It would be different if all profits for United 93 were pledged to the families of United 93, but they are not. Its purely Hollywood profit on a horrible situation.
3. Propaganda. Its a propaganda piece designed to re-stoke our outrage. Its purely a heart tugger meant to reassure us our war on terrorism and Islam is true.
That last part is what bothers me most. Our war in Iraq has the least support ever, as does our support for the prick of a president we have in George Bush. Yet now comes out the story of United 93. Don't get me wrong, I dont think Hollywood made the movie as a propaganda piece, but I think the media and ultimately the government is pushing it. Three different news stations I have watched are now promo-ing on how its an accurate story that everyone should watch.
I firmly believe our shadow government has happened on the idea to try and reinvigorate our desire for revenge and to shore up support for Iraq and possible war with Iran by trying to "remind us" why we are doing this war.
Funny thing is, it only reminds me that Saddam had absolutely nothing to do with 9-11 and in actuality, even with as horrible as he was, he kept the Middle east, and especially Iraq stable. There was no home for the terrorists in his country and even though he saber-rattled, he had actually obeyed all the edicts. Our oil prices were lower, terrorism attacks were lower and our approval in the world was higher.
We were totally in the right with Afghanistan, but seeing as we never even finished there, the fact that Osama can avoid the most powerful country in the world and the fact we are getting our asses kicked in Iraq and we should pull out makes me believe its totally feasible that this piece of crap movie is being greenlighted and pushed so hard by our government in another not-so subtle attempt at manipulating us.
The problem is, Americans are sheep and they will follow where the big men point.
