Given the popularity of F911
It appears to me that America HUNGERS for a viable alternative to Bush obcene foreign policy. Am I the only one who dearly wants to hear John Kerry give that exact thing.....and his current position is more a flavor of the same Bush doctrine, albeit slightly different in degree - it goes for the exact same endgame.

I want John Kerry to say that the Iraq war was wrong, period. I want him to say that invading other nations based on false premises is WRONG period. I want John Kerry to say that such things are war crimes and even America is not immune to international law period. I want John Kerry to say that if elected he would prosecute those guilty of war crimes. I want John Kerry to admit that the tool of war is a blunt weapon that rarely if ever achieves the results intended and should never be used as an offensive to political change. It NEVER works. It is costly - too costly in the terms of financial costs and the human cost to be an adequate benefit to international security and overall peace worldwide.

Am I the only lonely one that waits sadly for him to voice these points?

1. people with all kinds of views like F 9/11
I don't think you can draw the conclusion you did, from the popularity of the movie.

2. It's larger than that, I think.
Hey, I personally agree that the war in Iraq was completely unnecessary. That's my political stance as well as my personal one. However, it will take years for public opinion to come around, and years more for us to openly admit that we made a mistake that utterly massive. While it may be true, it's not condusive to winning the election in 2004.
