Bruce Willis Offers Million Dollar Bounty for Osama or Zarqawi (2005)
National Ledger ^ | November 12 2005 | CK Rairden

Posted on 11/11/2005 11:07:22 PM PST by jmc1969

A report to be published Saturday says that Demi Moore's ex will pony up a million cash to any civilian who turns in the terrorist scum.

Bruce Willis is such a die-hard patriot that he's offering $1 million to any civilian who turns in terror kingpins Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri or Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The hairless Hollywood he-man announced his bounty offer on MSNBC's "Rita Cosby: Live and Direct" this week.

Willis also revealed he was in talks to make a movie about the Deuce Four, the soldiers whose heroic exploits have been chronicled by embedded blogger Michael Yon.

Willis complained about media coverage of the war:

"I am baffled to understand why the things that I saw happening in Iraq, really good things happening in Iraq, are not being reported on."

There might be others as well. We should get the FBI to look into if large sums of money are going from Hollywood to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

I've heard he offered a million for Saddam Hussein, too.

Is that true and did he pay off after Saddam was caught?

Glad you have the time to follow the movies like that . I would have though that liberal Hollywood would have blacklisted anyone who goes against their Socialist politics by now.

Hostage wasn't bad, but not a classic like the original Die Hard.

Heard Sin City is good if you are a fan of comic books. It is supposedly done in funny colors to simulate the comic strip it is based on.

Sixth Sense is a classic, and Fifth Element and Unbreakable are good in their own ways.

You got any favorites?

As we know, money and beliefs are two very different things in Hollywood.

Twelve Monkeys.

Sin City is good even if you aren't a comic book fan. It's well made, cutting edge effects.

Thank you for asking. I enjoy talking about movies. Willis favorites? 12 Monkeys, Die Hard, Sixth Sense, Fifth Element, and Unbreakable.

I thought Hostage was okay. Also enjoyed Tears of the Sun, though I don't think I would watch it a second time.

All time favorite Bruce Willis movie is Hudson Hawk. There were so many great lines in that film.

While Willis might have good intentions - If the American government was thus far not able to get results from their 25 million dollar offer I just do not see how an offer of just one million dollars will get results.

No , I just though my point was obvious and didnt need to be nit picked to death .I'm glad Willis is busy working although considering his politics one would be very very surprised that he is as much .Most understood that's what I meant.

Actually, Snakes on a Plane is a real movie starring his Die Hard With a Vengeance co-star Samuel L.! The studio wanted to change the name, but Sam said, "No way! The title is the only reason I even took this role! Snakes on a Plane, man!"

The thing with Willis (Bruno) is that he has/had the opportunity to become like Nicholson, an actor pretending to be a movie star. Unfortunately, he'll probably squander that rare opportunity.

Blind Date with Willis and Kim Bassinger has some funny moments, and another I'd recommend for Bruce Willis fans.

Lighten up, Francis. And grow some skin while your at it. You chose to talk a bit about Willis and so I chose to show you were you could find out more information that would take very little effort or time on your part. Most understood that is what I meant. I took a poll. :)
