Michael Moore is a talented director specializing in, I think it's fair to say, left of center documentaries. Even though he is far more intelligent and witty than I, I would like to point out some flaws in his logic.
1) I'm no bin Laden expert but I do know he is a wealthy Saudi Arabian who has been hiding in Afghanistan for at least the last five years. Was he there during the war with Russia in the mid 1980's? I can't say but regardless, the Afghanistans were trained by United States personnel not in terrorism but in war. They weren't going over the border killing Soviet citizens. They were in their homeland fighting an occupying army who was also an enemy of ours.
2) Yes the United States was in bed with dictators and murderers in Central and South America during the Cold War.
We weren't there because we enjoy the sight of murdered civilians and nuns but because we believed we were fighting a greater evil named communism. Once the Cold War was over, we dumped those bastards like yesterday's kitty litter. Now most of those countries are true democracies. Was it worth it? You tell me.
3) We are not contending with terrorists from Salvador, Vietnam or Chili. They could care less what our past political and military actions have been. They hate us for one basic reason: our support of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East and the single small country that has been kicking their collective asses for over 50 years.
4) You can always count on Mr. Moore's feelings of white guilt. We suspected bin Laden immediately because he went after the WTC a decade ago and because NYC and DC are the kind of sexy targets, with all due respect to OK City, these pricks target. Besides, the right wing nuts in this country are too freakin' stupid to fly a plane and not fanatical enough for suicide missions.
5) I'll assume the Bush comments at the end were made in jest. Otherwise, they're too asinine to comment on.
If I have made factual errors here, please correct me.
