    Don't know if this has been posted or not but I am looking forward to seeing this movie. An entire documentary rebutting that dumbass Moore's movie. Some excerpts from an article:

    Army Specialist Peter Damon sits under a shade tree and relates his war story from Iraq. As he and his best friend, Paul Bush, worked on a tire on their vehicle, an explosion went off. Bush was killed.
    The camera pulls back, and you see for the first time that Damon didn't escape the incident unharmed. The explosion that killed his friend also took his arms from the elbows down. He is a young man with a young family, all with most of their lives ahead of them. His left sleeve is empty; his right arm has been replaced by a prosthesis with a sharp metal hook on the end. Damon is angry, and his voice takes on the tones of a man who knows he has been exploited.
    He is not angry at President Bush for sending him to Iraq. Specialist Damon volunteered for the Army like all of our soldiers, and he is proud of his service in Iraq. He is not even particularly angry about the explosion that killed his friend and cost him his arms. He is angry with filmmaker Michael Moore.
    While lying in a hospital bed at Walter Reed Army Hospital recovering weeks after the attack, NBC's Brian Williams interviewed the wounded soldier. Though Damon's arms are gone, he experiences "phantom pain" as if they were still attached. Though Moore never visited the military hospital and never even met Damon, he somehow obtained that NBC footage and used it in his film Fahrenheit 9/11, taking Damon's words out of context to make it appear that he is angry about the war and that his "phantom pain" is the pain of a soldier abandoned by his country and betrayed by his president. Nothing could be further from the truth.
    At this point, Damon looks into the camera as though he is speaking directly to Michael Moore, and says, "You know you've lied in making this movie. You know you lied in my case, you know you lied in a whole lot of other cases."

    I don't mind people making a biased movie as long as they call it that, not a documentary. I've been watching Moore's movies since I was in college, back when I thought he was a great champion of the people (e.g. "Roger and Me"). After I grew up a little and realized not everything was black and white I realized how full of sh*t this guy was, Bowling for Columbine made me want to puke, I thought he could never top such a stupendous pile of horse sh*t. Imagine my dismay when he manages to make and distribute a film worldwide calling into question our morals as a country and as a people (and make $100 mil. while he's at it). Even more disgusting, our own countrymen (idiots to a man) and people worldwide pushing this crap and advancing the whole "Imperialistic American" myth. (On a side note, does anyone else find it funny when a Brit calls us Imperialistic?)
    Alright, I'm done bitching. Back to the subject.

    The article is fairly interesting and the movie sounds like something worth watching. We have been bombarded with one side of this story for a while now and it will be nice to hear a different point of view.

    Damon should sue Moore for libel/slander (is it libel if it's on film?).

    If a guy from that Kerry Peacenik documentary can sue because they create a false impression of him, Damon should absolutely be able to sue Moore in the same manner. I'd *love* to see MM sued so dramatically he loses all proceeds from F9/11 and any future proceeds. At least then he could really say he's not in it for the money.

    Moore is 100% pure fawkstick. Pull anything you can out of context to try to sway the sheeple into seeing life through his coke-bottle glasses.
    I posted this a while back, but it seems to be relevant again.

    It's not all there, you need someone like Moore to fill in the pieces and make it "all there".



    I rented farenhype last night. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What ticked me off though, was that I was looking for it in blockbuster, and there was an entire wall of Farenheit 9/11. I could not find Hype until I left. There was ONE cover with two disks behind it, like almost out of sight on the Heit wall.

    That pissed me off. Just by simply plastering a wall with the Moore BS and hiding the counterpoint can influence people. Moore is probably paying Blockbuster.
