Bowling for Fallujah

Wednesday, April 14th, 2004 Heads Up... from Michael Moore

Friends,

I have never seen a head so far up a Presidential ass (pardon my Falluja) than the one I saw last night at the "news conference" given by George W. Bush. He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening.

I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately. But after last night's Lyndon Johnson impersonation from the East Room -- essentially promising to send even more troops into the Iraq sinkhole -- I had to write you all a note.

First, can we stop the Orwellian language and start using the proper names for things? Those are not “contractors” in Iraq. They are not there to fix a roof or to pour concrete in a driveway. They are MERCENARIES and SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE. They are there for the money, and the money is very good if you live long enough to spend it.

Halliburton is not a "company" doing business in Iraq. It is a WAR PROFITEER, bilking millions from the pockets of average Americans. In past wars they would have been arrested -- or worse.

The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win. Get it, Mr. Bush? You closed down a friggin' weekly newspaper, you great giver of freedom and democracy! Then all hell broke loose. The paper only had 10,000 readers! Why are you smirking?

One year after we wiped the face of the Saddam statue with our American flag before yanking him down, it is now too dangerous for a single media person to go to that square in Baghdad and file a report on the wonderful one-year anniversary celebration. Of course, there is no celebration, and those brave blow-dried "embeds" can't even leave the safety of the fort in downtown Baghdad. They never actually SEE what is taking place across Iraq (most of the pictures we see on TV are shot by Arab media and some Europeans). When you watch a report "from Iraq" what you are getting is the press release handed out by the U.S. occupation force and repeated to you as "news."

I currently have two cameramen/reporters doing work for me in Iraq for my movie (unbeknownst to the Army). They are talking to soldiers and gathering the true sentiment about what is really going on. They Fed Ex the footage back to me each week. That's right, Fed Ex. Who said we haven't brought freedom to Iraq! The funniest story my guys tell me is how when they fly into Baghdad, they don't have to show a passport or go through immigration. Why not? Because they have not traveled from a foreign country -- they're coming from America TO America, a place that is ours, a new American territory called Iraq.

There is a lot of talk amongst Bush's opponents that we should turn this war over to the United Nations. Why should the other countries of this world, countries who tried to talk us out of this folly, now have to clean up our mess? I oppose the U.N. or anyone else risking the lives of their citizens to extract us from our debacle. I'm sorry, but the majority of Americans supported this war once it began and, sadly, that majority must now sacrifice their children until enough blood has been let that maybe -- just maybe -- God and the Iraqi people will forgive us in the end.

Until then, enjoy the "pacification" of Falluja, the "containment" of Sadr City, and the next Tet Offensive – oops, I mean, "terrorist attack by a small group of Baathist loyalists" (Hahaha! I love writing those words, Baathist loyalists, it makes me sound so Peter Jennings!) -- followed by a "news conference" where we will be told that we must "stay the course" because we are "winning the hearts and minds of the people."

I'll write again soon. Don't despair. Remember, the American people are not that stupid. Sure, we can be frightened into a war, but we always come around sooner or later -- and the one way this is NOT like Vietnam is that it hasn't taken the public four long years to figure out they were lied to.

Now if Bush would just quit speaking in public and giving me more free material for my movie, I can get back to work and get it done. I've got four weeks left 'til completion.

Yours,

Michael Moore

Best time of the day . . . or night. I'm getting the night differential pay anyway. It's in my contract.

BTW, I have a hunch that Moore's 9-11 film is going to make a bigger splat than Al Franken's radio show has.

Great Movie!



Hal Moore was a Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army when he received his orders to "find and engage the enemy." It was November of 1965.

Bruce Crandall and his 16 "Huey" crews flew Moore and his men into the Ia Drang Valley in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Joe Galloway, a reporter for United Press International, tagged along. Col. Moore and his men had no idea that their Landing Zone (LZ X-Ray) was close to the place where 2000 North Vietnamese soldiers had gathered. Soon 450 Americans were surrounded.

The quote in the cartoon above is from a Michael Moore letter to his fans. First he asserts that the insurgents killing our soldiers are not the enemy, and then he compares the insurgents to America's revolutionary-era Minutemen. In other words, he wants us to believe that our soldiers are the oppressive, colonial enemy of freedom-fighting Iraqis. The truth is just the opposite -- it is the militant Islamists who seek to establish another dictatorship, and it is America who fought to depose the previous one. But Moore is not known for letting the facts get the way of his message. Right-Thinking.com gave the letter a thorough critique. Hopefully people will remember this quote when his next "documentary" is released.

I think Freepers should campaign to have Michael Moore sign up for one of those Extreme Makeovers.

It might improve his attitude and if not at least he would be easier to view.

This is for Mr. Moore from me. I really don't care what you write or any type of movies you make. I know your kind. I don't care if WMD are never found. I don't care if the whole world hates me or the U.S. for declaring war on terrorist and those who harbor, help and protect them. They declared war on the U.S. and me long before we ever did anything about it because we had to convence a lot of people in the U.S. that we are really not safe as we would like to think that we are. What would YOU Mr. Moore do? Nothing. You do not want to fight back regardless who is president? Do you want to keep on writing and making movies without someone telling you what to write or what kind of movie to make. You and your kind MUST understand that now it is either them or us, so which is it you want? Your not going to have it both ways. Do you think that the terrorist would not hesitate to kill you along with as many U.S. citizens as they can if they had a chance. You can bash President Bush or me or anyone you like but it will not change a thing. Because what people of your kind don't understand again is that you have in this world the haves' and the have nots' and the have nots' want what the haves' have. Since for whatever reason, education, religion, laws or what have you the have nots' can't get what you have they will kill you for it or for the mistaken belief that it is the haves' fault that they don't have what they want. So when the have nots' think that they don't have anything to lose that is when communication breaks down and war begins. So there you have it, we are in a different type of war now with terrorist that are fighting because of an idea and hatred to kill ALL who do not think as they do.
Mr. Moore is appears that you too are fighting with an idea and hate but with the wrong enemy. The enemy is out there go get them. These terrorist have killed so many people that were not doing them any harm. Just look at all of the Christians of all races they have killed. No outrage on that. Why? Look at all the other killings and torture around the world now and way before Pres. Bush came on the scene. Where is your outrage here Mr. Moore?
No Mr. Moore, I know your kind and so do a lot of other people, that is why we will not let the U.S.A., the people or the President down. And when I risk my life and maybe lay it down it will not be for you or your kind because I KNOW YOUR KIND.

Well done - you roused the "troops" to an early morning exercise in adrenaline pumping, if not ruining their breakfasts! lol

And to add to the topic. I would write to little Michael
the following:

Dear Michael:

Please shave.

What you are doing isn't the latest style - it won't work.

Let's see if I get it:

Halliburton is a symbol of repression, because a fat dirtbag thinks they're making Bush rich.

Fed Ex is a symbol of freedom, because they're helping to make a fat dirtbag rich.

Is that about right?

AIC you don't seem to know Michael Moore. He is not one of us. HE IS ONE OF "THEM!" Michael Moore is doing everything within his power to support the downfall of our God fearing Constitutional Republic. I don't toss this out lightly, HE IS A TRAITOR, twisting a knife in the spine of our nation.
