The Siege

The Siege

3 september 2009

Recently I saw the motion picture The Siege (1998), starring Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis. For those who haven’t seen it. The movie is about a wave of terror attacks in New York by Islamic fundamentalist, and is lead by a Sheik called Ahmed Bin Talal. As the terror attacks continue, the US government responds by declaring martial law, sending US troops, into the streets of New York City.

Terror attacks, Islamic fundamentalist, New York and a Sheik with ‘Bin’ in the name. One can’t help start thinking about the tragic events of 9/11. So during the movie I began to wonder… who wrote the script of the movie? So I visited the Internet Movie Database website to find out.

Lawrence Wright it states on IMDB. Is this the same guy from The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11? Popped into my mind.

Well, I got that quickly confirmed with a big YES, after the visit of the website: www.lawrencewright.com

A lesson from "The Siege" with Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis?

now as it appears US troops are on the way to Iran and with the Rovian October surprise announcement, with the pope traveling to Turkeye under strange circumstances,
and other disturbing facts we all should watch this movie again. Back in 1999, when it was first shown, it may be a little bit far fetched.

But by watching this movie, I have to admit the director was a prophet. The speeches of the president in the movie were the same as G.W. Bush did once for real.

And even the story come true more and more.

So should the end- our last hope to stop the Neocon Fascist Madmen is to tell the military troops that their war is bogus and that their leaders are war criminals,
traitors and constant liars and that all of us support a military revolution, in the name of the constitution and the republic, to stop these bunch of criminals
who could not be stopped otherwise.

Come on you brave soldiers, support the US and get rid off these mass-murdering war criminals. On your shoulder lay the weight of the last hope of our future-
that's my dead earnest. Especially the high ranking officers. I heard the retired generals were threaten not to speak out their dissent anymore.
