Dude, Where's My Country?
By Michael Moore 

     Michael Moore, author of Stupid White Men, is back with a scathing critique of President George Bush and the war in Iraq and the war on terror. He begins with a series of questions he would like to ask the president. One would require some medical research and listening to the latest news, but the answer is there. How could Osama bin Laden be able to plan and execute the attack of September 11, 2001 while needing dialysis? It is possible.

     Next, he lists the "whoppers" Mr. Bush has told us about invading Iraq. He gives them labels like "whopper with cheese" or "bacon whopper." You've heard all of them before, and Mr. Moore lists his sources--credible or not--on his website.

      After this list, he begins a diatribe on the loss of some of our freedoms in the name of Homeland Security. It seems he would rather deny the possibility of further terrorist attacks and risk more lives being lost than let the government tell him he cannot do something. Though all men may be equal and the Iraqis deserve to live in freedom, "it's not worth dying for."

     I quit listening here. Had our forefathers not thought freedom worth dying for, we'd still be ruled by England, and we'd still be fighting in Iraq. Though the war may have been started for all the wrong reasons, we are in it. The more our citizens complain, the more our troops will be attacked and killed in an effort to make the government pull us out, just like in Vietnam. In my opinion, the time to question our involvement in Iraq is after our people are home.

       But, as I am entitled to my opinion, Mr. Moore is entitled to his. I will let you, the reader, decide whether his book is worth your time.
