Re: United 93

I think the passengers were going to do something about the sutuation on United 93, but I wish my government would buck up and say thay blew it out of the sky.

I was glued to the TV all day on 9-11 and there were a couple reports of passengers on board saying that the wing was on fire before it went down. Those stories were quickly swept under the rug. I know people with loved ones would be upset that the government shot the plane down, but everyone knew it would be the best outcome.

All around a BAD situation.

Re: United 93

It was very moving. Depressing and motivating at the same time. It's a good reminder of what we're up against, that our enemy wants us all dead. As such, I believe they should show this movie on network TV during prime time hours.

It was filmed in real time, from takeoff to hijacking to crash. You can feel the tension build. Your heart goes out to the innocent people the terrorists butchered. The whole movie is two hours long, but it felt like double that watching from the audience. It was wrenching, and the confusion and disarry the various gov't entities were hamstrung with on the day in question is flat maddening.

The libs are all freaking out because they realize this: any clear thinking American who goes to see this movie will come away from it reinvigorated in his/her support of President Bush and the War on Terror.

I don't really believe in conspiracy theories surrounding 9-11, not involving this plane or the one which hit the Pentagon, AA 77. The cockpit voice recorder in United 93 is said to have captured Scott Beamer and other passengers wrestling with the hijackers and forcing the plane to crash.

That said, I will admit there are some things that cause people to question what happened.

Anyway, go see it for yourself. It's worth the price of admission, a movie you'll have to walk off when it's over...

I know this is probably just flame bait, but I think you will be hard pressed to find an American (of any political cloth) who disagrees that terrorists are the scum of the earth, and excising them from the population is a good thing. Do not confuse the Iraq war with the GWOT.

Are you saying that people of the opinion that the Iraq war is part of the GWOT are confused...

That you're a patriot is the very reason you SHOULD see it.

It wasn't bait; I'm not confused about anything; and I stand by my statement.

I will....eventually. I am a very emotional person and remembering what those SCUM did to my fellow Americans and NON Americans makes me violent.

I can't even look at "those" people without getting angry. If I see this film....I will overload.

God Bless America!

I think I know where you're (not?) going here... movies are made for one reason: profit. Same as any other industry. So now you have to ask yourself if it's too soon for Hollywood to be profiting from this.

And then there's this asshole...
