(F-911) Movie Heats Up Anti-Dispatch Move (South Korea)
By Jung Sung-ki

Michael Moores anti-Bush documentary ``Fahrenheit 9/11 has turned up the heat on the anti-troop dispatch movement in South Korea. Lawmakers of the progressive Democratic Party (DLP) on Monday hosted a free screening event at the National Assembly in Seoul in an effort to build on the nations anti-dispatch momentum.

Opposition to the nations planned dispatch of some 3,000 additional troops to Iraq has grown since a South Korean worker Kim Sun-il was beheaded in Iraq last month by Islamic militants and a U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee recently released a report discrediting much of Bushs case for going to war in Iraq with regards to the links between Iraq and al-Qaida.

``This preview event here at the National Assembly is very meaningful, Rep. Roh Hoi-chan told The Korea Times. ``Because 49 lawmakers, including myself, presented a resolution last week calling for the U.S. to apologize for demanding an additional troop dispatch based on wrong intelligence.

. . .

``Our initial goal is to delay the governments dispatch plan until December, the date the National Assembly approved last February, Rep. Roh added. ``And I think the situation in and out of Iraq is fairly changeable until then and may also depend on the outcome of the upcoming U.S. presidential election in November.

6. This is Great!...Moore should travel around the world and show the movie
for free. That would shake up bee hives.
