Movie explains protesters' motives
To the editor:
Readers of the Southeast Missourian are probably aware that many Americans have long opposed the war in Iraq. At the corner of Broadway and West End Boulevard each Thursday evening, local residents can be seen protesting this war. Many folks may have wondered to themselves: "But why do they protest?"
Readers who may be curious about why these protesters have been for so long dedicated to their opposition could do no better than watch Michael Moore's movie "Fahrenheit 9/11." This movie presents a succinct and accurate explanation of why the war protesters have been for so long dedicated to their protest. I strongly recommend it to anyone seeking an understanding of the steadfast opposition to the war.
Prior to and since its release, Bush White House and right-wing commentators have tried desperately to undermine the credibility of the movie with the same brand of lies that they perpetrated in order to gain public support for the war in the first place. To date, however, no substantive errors in the movie have been identified. It is well worth the price of admission.
