Fahrenheit 9/11

 

“Was it all just a dream?” Michael Moore asks at the very beginning. According to Moore’s version, Gorge W. Bush won the campaign for American president unjustly, the September 11 happened ironically, and then the Iraq War broke out absurdly. Although the film aims to critique the Bush government, which seems to be irrelevant to China, we can still see some familiar elements.

Relying on his father’s power, Bush succeeded in becoming a new president, defeating his opponent, Al Gore. In this election, the civil right of many African Americans were expropriated illegally due to their potential to support Gore. In spite of the strong objection of Representatives, unfortunately, no single member of Senate stood out. Thus, the president was Bush, and a dark period started.

Unable to face the angry people, Bush had been on vocation, till the September 11 happened. While people were crying for the death of 3000 innocents, Bush insisted on not changing his previous plan. Actually, he looked like a scared boy in the first 7 minutes after being told about the attacks, having no idea on what to do. It was obvious that the Saudis and the bin Laden were involved in the attacks; however, because their family was having huge amount of trade with the Bush family, members of the bin Laden family were evacuated out of the United States, but this should not have happened. It might be true that making money is much more important than the duties towards citizens. Hence, Iraq, an oil-rich country, was dressed up as the scapegoat.

In order to strengthen its power, the ministration did not hesitate to produce fake terror, playing the whole country in its hand. In this way, under the name of national security, people lost their liberty and spies were everywhere. Dictatorship came. Everyone around could be a terrorist, and a camera before the Embassy of the Saudi Arabian was a wonderful equipment to summon policepeople.

War, a wrong war. Death, meaningless death. Sarcastically, impoverished young people sacrificed themselves to destroy countless lives and homes of guiltless Iraqis, whereas not a single member of Senate were ready to send their children to the battlefront to guard their nation and people nor to protect the ministration of their exact president. Blood and tear belongs to the powerlesses, whereas glory and honor belongs to the owners.

As a sequence of his only experience as an actor in this film, Gorge W. Bush won Razzies Awards in 2005.
